Brisbane Common Ground

Brisbane Common Ground is an affordable housing development at 15 Hope Street, South Brisbane. Combining residential, retail/commercial and community spaces, this unique building has been designed for social inclusion. The 146 unit building is a sustainable housing solution for people who have experienced chronic homelessness and people earning low incomes.

The project was delivered through a pioneering government-business-community partnership.

Funding for the land purchase, design, construction and support services was provided by the Australian and Queensland governments through the National Building Economic Stimulus Plan and the COAG National Partnership Agreement on Homelessness. This is the third Common Ground project that Grocon Constructors completed at cost, with no profit or margin.

Ongoing delivery of Brisbane Common Ground is the responsibility of Supportive Housing Partners, Common Ground Queensland and Micah Projects. Common Ground Queensland provides the tenancy and property management and Micah Projects provides support services to tenants who require it. Both community organisations have been strongly involved in the development and implementation of the project.
