An Update From NDISD
As always this is an update from our Development Partner NDISD on the sites and units they have been acquiring lately.
With in excess of $300m of completed properties needed by NDISP to supply outstanding new homes in the Financial Year Ending 30 June 2019 and over $950m by 30 June 2022 the pipeline of supply is a vital component.
Read below for what our current priorities are and email us at [email protected] for an intro to an NDISD team member who can quickly assess whether your site is suitable.
Wanted to Buy
With NDISP’s mission to provide homes for people with disabilities that are just as easy to find and move into as non accessible homes, NDISD are constantly acquiring land for houses, unit sites and 10 units inside other developers off the plan complexes.
We look for flat sites that are preferably all of, or at least :
- Located an easy, flat chair roll away from shops, cafes etc;
- Have an excellent view or something more interesting than a neighbouring fence;
- On or close to a high frequency public transport route.
Whilst above is the desired outcome for a lot of tenants, people with disabilities live everywhere and we will look at any site to see if it helps someone get into their new home.
Current Site Priorities
While always looking for all of these, the order of priority changes regularly
- 350 – 800m2 sites for houses
- 600m2 unit sites
- 10 units inside larger complexes
Current Location Priorities
While always looking in all of these,areas (and the rest of Queensland) the order of priority changes regularly
