About Us

As tenancy and property managers for Common Ground Canberra, the first of its kind in the ACT, we take great pride looking after the newly completed site now home to over 40 singles and couples who would have otherwise struggled to find housing.

Located in the heart of Gungahlin in the ACT, Common Ground Canberra is a low cost supportive living initiative, focused on providing long term and secure housing to those who have experienced homelessness or who are on low incomes. It is a style of housing pioneered in New York over 25 years ago and has since found global success.

The site in Gungahlin consists of 40, 1-bedroom units with extensive internal and external living areas. Spread across 4 floors, the site delivers a 6-7 star energy efficiency rating. Some of the great features within each unit include reverse cycle air conditioning and heating, double glazed windows and doors, an open plan kitchen & living space, an internal laundry, balcony and storage cage on the basement level.

The aim is to build a community and within it positive role models. A unique, social mix of tenants aims to reduce stigma yet promote a sense of community through diverse interests and backgrounds. This unique mix will continue to foster a viable and fruitful community.

What truly sets Common Ground Canberra apart is the 24 hour security, onsite support services, and extensive common areas that are designed to encourage tenants to form relationships. These areas include an expansive kitchen and entertaining area, a fully equipped art room, several computer workstations, and outdoor BBQ and veggie gardens.

Argyle looks forward to building great relationships with the new tenants through genuine support and a welcoming onsite presence. We are committed to providing secure and sustainable housing,  aligned with our vision to build a better future for our communities. 

“To all the common ground staff, thank you for giving me the chance to live here. I feel a lot happier these days because I feel safe. I love my flat. Thank you” Tenant
