The Pemulwuy Project, owned by the Aboriginal Housing Company (AHC), is a project to redevelop land known as “the Block” in Redfern. The mixed-use site will ultimately include affordable housing for 62 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families, a gymnasium, commercial and retail space, a gallery, student accommodation, and childcare centre.
In June 2009, the Department provided concept approval for the redevelopment. AHC was granted approval to build in 2012.
The development includes three precincts:
The project involves the following existing applications:
The Independent Planning Commission (IPC) determined all three applications in March 2019. The IPC has published their Statement of Reasons on their website.
A major component of the Pemulwuy Project, being Precinct 3 was identified as State Significant Development (SSD) and assessed according to the SSD Process.
