Looks like a decent building with good finishes. More of this please!

It will definitely have more street activation than the current tenant, Blackwell Funerals.

Hopefully this kind of stuff progresses north along Prospect Road; on opposite of the side of the side street this will corner on is mostly hodge-lodge 70s/80s buildings, the worst of those decades.

Ryans Fruit and Veg has closed down at Prospect Road. Most shopfronts at the centre are now occupied with a 4wd shop now now open in the west side of the complex.

Junction Australia applies to build housing complex in Prospect

A four-storey affordable housing complex has been earmarked for one of Prospect’s main thoroughfares in a move the developer says will help those struggling to pay rent following COVID-19.

Junction Australia, which provides community support services and housing, has applied to Prospect Council to build a four-storey building at 244-246 Churchill Rd.

There will be 23 one and two-bedroom apartments in the $8.2 million development, which will have discount to market or income-based rental prices.

Junction Australia housing general manager David Burton said there was a lack of affordable housing and rent on Churchill Rd, so expected the development would be welcomed.

“We are really focused on providing that housing that is missing on Churchill Rd and in Prospect generally, like it is everywhere,” Mr Burton said.

“Off the back of what is happening around COVID-19 and the job losses, it has been difficult for people to get into housing, so hopefully this will support that part of the market.

“But it ticks all the boxes in terms of proximity to the city, to shops, transport, just 900m from Islington (train) station and we have four bus stops within 200m.”

The building replaces three vacant dwellings Junction Australia owns.

Pending approval, Mr Burton would like to start construction by early 2021.

Prospect Mayor David O’Loughlin said the project was a “welcomed development” to the “tapestry” of Churchill Rd.

Last year, West Torrens Council’s assessment panel gave Junction Australia approval to start construction on a complex, up to five storeys high, at a former Housing Trust site on Anzac Highway, Camden Park.

That project features 54 homes, in a mix of social housing for tenants and affordable housing to sell to people on low-to-medium incomes.
