"Vacancy rates in Arncliffe trending

toward below 2%"

The government’s medium-growth scenario forecasts 151,000 new homes will be built in the next five years. This forecast is well below the 50,000 a year requirement needed to meet the demands enforced by the growth in population. Arncliffe's vacancy rates are trending towards under 2%. Declining completions and population increases will add further downward pressure in the next several years and beyond. To support this, REINSW members continue to report an extreme shortage of stock. Reports released identify that there are not enough properties in the rental pool to satisfy tenant demand. As a result, there is a very small handful of new build 2x2 stock available and it is snapped up quickly. The remaining stock is old build apartments with no appeal to the changing demographic of Arncliffe and Bayside.

"Millions in funding for local Bayside

gentrification pipeline"

Arncliffe has been designated as a planned precinct by the New South Wales Government. Millions of dollars in funding for the gentrification of the community has been approved by Bayside Council. These upgrades include a $3 Million revamp to Arncliffe town centre, with bicycle lanes, an increased local tree canopy to the tune of 900 trees, and the rejuvenation of public parks and amenities. Further, a vision for the new park next to Arncliffe Station on the corner of Arncliffe Street and Burrows Street has been proposed. This park will be at least 7,000 square metres in size, including recreational space, areas for children's play, an off-leash dog park and community facilities. With public transport being used by 76% of the city's population, the completion of the master planning for Arncliffe Train Station could not come at a better time. The canopy extensions will encourage commuters to use the full length of the platform in all weather conditions, to ease platform congestion during busy times. Construction for the Train Station is expected to begin in mid-2021.
