Judy Line, CEO of Women’s Housing Ltd, today announced a new project to house women and children at Gronn Place, West Brunswick.
“Women’s Housing Ltd has worked closely with the Department of Health and Human Services and AV Jennings to bring this project to life, and we are delighted to be part of this exciting housing development. The old run-down walk-ups at Gronn Place will be replaced by new energy efficient homes that are not only better to live in but more affordable for our tenants. We see Gronn Place as a great example of social housing growth in Victoria,” said Line.
Women’s Housing Limited will have responsibility for the management of rental agreements and maintenance of 111 new public housing units. In addition to the management of the units, Women’s Housing Ltd will also purchase another eight units to be constructed by AV Jennings within the precinct.

The project will play a vital role in meeting the pressing need for affordable housing in Melbourne, particularly for older single women and women and children who have been made homeless because of family violence. All properties will be offered to people on the Victorian Housing Register for social housing.
As a registered Victorian Housing Association, Women’s Housing Ltd has extensive experience in managing a diverse range of social housing across Melbourne and has an excellent reputation for property and place management.
Women’s Housing Limited looks forward to taking a leading long-term role in the overall management of the precinct, to ensure that this project further enriches the neighbourhood, as well as delivering much needed long-term housing for vulnerable women.
