660 Elizabeth St. is a new 10 level apartment building located in the heart of Melbourne. It is beautifully designed, provides high quality living spaces, has spectacular views and reflects current best practice in terms of environmental sustainability.
It provides much needed affordable rental housing for a mix of singles and families on low and moderate incomes. What makes this project particularly special is that it also aims to create a welcoming and supportive place for Victorians who have experienced long periods of homelessness.
Yarra Community Housing’s vision for 660 Elizabeth St. is to not only be a stunning new inner city apartment building, but to be a vibrant and exciting place where people from a diverse range of backgrounds can create a sense of home and community; and be inspired to realise their own hopes and dreams.
Yarra Community Housing is a non-profit, non-government affordable housing association with a long history of providing innovative models of housing and support for single persons who struggle to achieve stable housing - including many people who have experienced homelessness.
I may be stretching the definition of "mural" a little bit, but the patterned, temperature -regulating grill on the façade of the building, looks to me like a fine decorative mural, reflecting the magnificent street trees outside the building.
