Yumba-Meta Limited's own property development project aimed at facilitating pathways to Indigenous Home Ownership.
Yumba-Meta’s very own property development program came about after identifying a need to provide their clients with more exit strategies to help them shift from community housing to affordable, secure and independent living in their very own homes.
Yumba-Meta Limited invested in 50 acres of land at Mt Louisa with the intention of subdividing and selling off a portion of blocks to help fund other programs, but mainly to encourage Indigenous home ownership.
The first two lots were bought by two young indigenous couples looking to start their lives together in their own homes.
YML partnered with Martin Locke Homes, a local construction company, to construct a duplex for seniors and have also completed construction of Townsville’s first Specialist Disability Accommodation. SDA construction completed end August 2019.
The estate is currently selling blocks in the open market with 16 blocks already sold.
