REDFERN: The Aboriginal Housing Company (AHC) has been stripping out fittings from the long-vacant childcare centre on the eastern side of Eveleigh Street for the past couple of weeks. Weekend work into the evening over August 26 and 27 was necessary as two train lines on the busy Redfern-to-Central corridor had to be closed and electrically isolated for two days to allow heavy machinery to safely demolish the eastern end of the building abutting the railway track.
Alisi Tutuila, Chairperson of the AHC, expressed her gratitude to the community for supporting the AHC and its vision for a sustainable, social, urban development that will create a strong community for generations to come by providing housing, employment, training, and further educational opportunities.
“The AHC’s vision is to create a positive future for our next generation. The Pemulwuy Project epitomises this vision, and will provide Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with the opportunity to live and grow up in a vibrant, safe environment in the heart of Sydney.”
The Pemulwuy Project will provide the AHC with a strong economic foundation, fostering the hopes and aspirations of the community.
