Alternative housing

Alternative housing

Ideas challenge

We called for ideas to boost the diversity of housing across the city and wider community, with a focus on identifying and developing new models to increase affordable alternative housing supply. The Ideas Challenge was open from 26 March to 8 May 2019. 

On 14 June 2019, we’ll announce the shortlisted participants. Up to 6 proposals will be shortlisted by an independent jury and invited by the City of Sydney to participate in stage 2. The finalists will be paid $20,000 to further develop their ideas. 

The community will have the opportunity to provide feedback on the shortlisted concepts as part of the City’s consultation to shape Sydney 2050.

Key dates

  • Announcement of shortlisted participants on 14 June 2019.
  • Stage 2 – proposal development will run from 14 June to 1 November 2019.
