Northern Tablelands MP Adam Marshall joined not-for-profit provider Homes North’s CEO Maree McKenzie today at the official opening of an affordable housing complex in Stephen Street, Armidale.

The $2.1 million development comprises six homes built by Hibbards Developers for Homes North and provides environmentally friendly apartments that will provide long-term budget accommodation to Armidale locals, while keeping energy bills low.

Five of the six apartments are already occupied and residents include low income singles, families, and locals with disabilities. The final unit will be filled on Wednesday.

Mr Marshall said the complex was a great credit to Homes North and represented a real commitment to improving home affordability for residents on fixed and low incomes.

“We stood at this site just 10 months ago to turn the first sod – now here we are opening six beautiful new homes, ready to be lived in,” Mr Marshall said.
