Billbergia has lodged plans for four apartment towers up to 23 storeys on a 1.3ha Arncliffe site.

The $253 million plans are for 744 apartments, including 180 social housing apartments which will be owned by community housing provider Evolve Housing.

The project includes a 4000sq m public park, shops, shared community facilities and a childcare centre.

It will update the 1940s housing estate owned by the NSW Land and Housing Corporation.

The island site, bounded by Eden Street, Forest Road and Princess Highway, currently has 14 low-rise social housing buildings.

The estate has been long earmarked for redevelopment with only a 12 or so tenants in residence this time last year.

The 60,000sq m development will comprise four towers, one of 21 storeys, two at 20 storeys and one of 17 storeys.

The site is close to Deicorp’s recently completed, 10-storey, four-building apartment complex at 118 Princes Highway.

Ralan Group had a project at 213 Princes Highway, building a 318-apartment project until its 2019 collapse.

The Civil Aviation Safety Authority will need to give approval given the proposed high-rise towers would infringe Sydney Airport’s airspace heights limits.
