An artist's impression of the Ashton Avenue project.
The Department of Communities collaborated with Yolk Property Group and BGC to deliver the Pavilion on Ashton development, featuring 22 apartments at Ashton Avenue in Claremont.
The three-storey development includes one, two and three-bedroom apartments for a range of homebuyers, including younger people wanting to buy their first home close to amenities and downsizers hoping to stay in the area.
The apartments are well designed to optimise natural lighting, heating and cooling; and some of them also incorporate universal access standards to ensure that people can easily enter and navigate them.
The development is only 250m from the Loch Street train station, 250m from a bus route along Alfred Street, 800m from the Mt Claremont Farmers’ Market and a 100m stroll to the post office, dentist, medical centre, specialty shops.
The project was delivered as part of State Government’s $394 million METRONET Social and Affordable Housing and Jobs Package – a major investment in housing aimed at building liveable and connected communities close to transport infrastructure.
Construction started in September 2020 and was completed in November 2021.
