GLENROY COMMUNITY HUB
WURUNDJERI COUNTRY, GLENROY, VICTORIA
In a first for a community centre in Australia, Glenroy Community Hub aims to achieve Passive House, Zero Energy and Living Building Challenge Petal certification.
The Hub will provide the City of Moreland community with a welcoming, nature-inspired environment to learn, grow, celebrate and heal. Its centrepiece is the new contemporary library, with Glenroy Memorial Kindergarten, Maternal Child Health, a community health provider, neighbourhood learning and childcare collocated with the library. Framing the hub as a ‘social connector’ is a key strategy to increase community awareness of the range of Council services and interaction.
Construction is in progress with the Hub expected to open early 2022
