CHL has a busy history.

It was born in 1993 when CHL was registered as a housing association auspiced by Common Equity Housing Ltd (CEHL – the stockholder of housing for the common equity rental cooperative sector).

It has gone from strength to strength, designing its first houses in 1995, growing its property management portfolio to going international in 2005 to Timor Leste and Chile in 2008.

From its Melbourne beginnings, CHL spread its services to Tasmania in 2006 NSW in 2007, WA and SA in 2009.

In 2010, CHL spread its wings into WA followed by Queelsland and India in 2012 and in 2015 the company started building the largest housing project to date in Timor.

Today, the company has reached Rwanda and Indonesia as well.

In August this year, the Gold Coast Youth Foyer welcomed its first new tenants thanks to a three-way partnership between Community Housing Queensland Limited (CHQL), the Queensland Government and Gold Coast Youth Service Inc.

The $12.3 million youth foyer aims to provide young people the pathway to pursue their goals and ambitions for the future without having to worry about finding a roof over their head.

The new development consists of 40 self-contained studio apartments, communal spaces and offices, which will be managed by CHL.

There will also be 24-hour on-site supervision and support for young tenants aged between 16 and 25 years provided by the Gold Coast Youth Service.
