Introducing Defence Housing Australia – Liv Apartments’ developer

Apr 20, 2017

DHA was created over 25 years ago to create a better lifestyle for Australian Defence members and their families, to help attract and retain personnel and to ensure that, while serving their country, they have safe, secure and high-quality accommodation.

DHA has evolved and grown over the last five years to become a leading residential property developer, with almost 50 projects underway across the country and a development pipeline worth approximately $2.5 billion. .

Despite the size of its property portfolio, some Western Australians aren’t aware that DHA is in fact one of Australia’s biggest property developers. We have around $130 million in projects in Western Australia alone.

DHA manages a property portfolio of 18,000 properties in Australia, 2,500 of which we own outright. DHA currently has active projects in Rockingham, Baldivis and Fremantle (Liv Apartments). Last year we completed the refurbishment of the historic Gunners Cottages in Fremantle.

Today, more than half the land we develop and almost three-quarters of the apartments we develop are sold on the open market to ordinary Australian homebuyers, with Defence families as neighbours that they can trust and appreciate.

For buyers, choosing a DHA project provides the unique benefit of confidence that once approved, their property will definitely be built. As a government-backed entity DHA is not reliant on pre-sales to fund construction.

Additionally, DHA is committed to design innovation and sustainability in all our projects and has achieved numerous awards from the Urban Development Institute of Australia, Master Builders Australia and Green Building Council of Australia.

Liv has achieved a 4 star Green Star equivalent rating, 7.5 star NatHERS (Nationwide House Energy Rating Scheme) average rating, and has recently received the prestigious One Planet Community certification.

Every Liv apartment will feature balconies, ceiling fans and LED lighting. The development will host edible gardens and a shared residents’ garden, louvered windows for sun protection, solar panels, reduced waste by design, sub metering of utilities and water efficiency measures.

Liv Apartments Fremantle is being built by the Georgiou Group, and is selling now. The Liv Apartments display suite is located at 34 Quarry st Street, Fremantle, and is open from 2-4pm on Saturdays or by appointment by calling Alex on 0438 007 155 or Toby on 0410 855 803
