About One Minto

One Minto is an urban renewal project that has transformed the former social housing estate of Minto in South Western Sydney into a new and thriving community. It has set a new benchmark for similar social housing renewal projects in NSW.

A mix of 70% private and 30% social housing was carefully integrated into the masterplan. One Minto has been converted into a sustainable and socially cohesive community that is home to thousands of people surrounded by attractive streetscapes, new homes and high quality open spaces and infrastructure.

One Minto demonstrates the benefits of government, industry and the local community working together to reinvigorate a community beyond the delivery of new housing and drive long-lasting social outcomes.

Key project outcomes

One Minto is a $375 million urban renewal project that has delivered over 1,200 dwellings for an estimated 3,600 residents. The project was completed in 2016 and showcases Landcom’s masterplan which integrates new and renovated social housing with new private housing.
