Markham Avenue


Markham Avenue is one of the first projects designed and delivered under the Victorian Government’s Big Housing Build.

Spread across five buildings within a welcoming environment, the community’s 178 social and affordable homes are ‘tenure blind’, arranged and designed to be indistinguishable from each other. The 100 per cent government-owned development is a socially and environmentally sustainable place to live with quality at its core.

Once occupied by 56 time-worn public housing units from the 1950s, the site has been transformed into a vibrant, landscape-led community designed for longevity, with the dwellings integrating seamlessly with their natural surroundings and with the grain and materiality of their neighbourhood context.

Defined by generous spaces and amenities, connections to nature, and timeless, durable materials, Markham Avenue represents a healthier, more inclusive form of higher density living.
