Nightingale Marrickville


Nightingale Marrickville is a collaboration with Fresh Hope Communities and Nightingale Housing. It is the first purpose built, affordable build-to-rent housing project for SJB, Nightingale and Fresh Hope Communities.

Comprising 54 Teilhaus homes and two commercial tenancies at ground, the project provides a build-to-rent community offering that’s affordable at 80 per cent of the going market rate in the area.

Homes at Nightingale Marrickville are allocated through a balloting process that gives everyone a fair chance at becoming a resident. Fifty per cent will be allocated to priority groups, including First Nations Australians, single women over 55, individuals with a disability and key community contributors.

Teilhaus, meaning ‘part of house’ in German, are space efficient, small-footprint homes that maintain functionality through joinery and the addition of community spaces. The project was designed to prioritise sustainability and cost efficiency.
