Sleek and sophisticated are two words rarely used to describe housing options for people with disability who also have high physical support needs. That’s about to change with Ability Apartments. Scheduled to open in mid 2020, this 6 storey residential/commercial complex will integrate 11 specially designed rental apartments within the larger complex of 71 luxury units. Smart-home technology and onsite overnight support have finally made the dream a reality for those with disability, providing an independent lifestyle once thought impossible.

This complex is poised to transform Villawood’s town centre with its vibrant mix of residential apartments, cafes and shops all in one building; located in Villawood’s new shopping precinct, it’s within easy reach of Aldi Supermarket, train & bus transport, community services and Liverpool Hospital, the state’s largest, is just 6km away.

Each apartment offers the highest level of accessibility with smart-home features; generous, open plan living spaces are framed by floor-to-ceiling glass that floods the home with natural light, while expansive terraces seamlessly extend the interiors to the outdoors. Height adjustable bench tops and a score of other thoughtful design features make the kitchens a joy for meal prep, and each accessible bedroom includes a smartly finished en-suite with similar functionality; a state-of-the-art split cycle air conditioning system provides the apartment with year round comfort.

An expansive and accessible rooftop terrace crowns the building; bathed in sunlight throughout the day, it’s perfect for family entertaining, whilst the outdoor gym is yet another unique attraction.

A key feature of Ability Apartments is the onsite overnight support based out of a separate, dedicated apartment, with support activated via personal device, fob pendant, wall button or voice automation.

The complex will include 1 x 1 bedroom, 8 x 2 bedroom and 2 x 3 bedroom rental units with secure parking and direct lift access. Purpose-built for Specialist Disability Accommodation or SDA, these apartments will achieve platinum level certification under the NDIS Specialist Disability Accommodation Guidelines.
