The Wheatsheaf Community Hub, designed by DesignInc Architects, will provide the Glenroy community with a welcoming, nature-inspired environment to learn, grow, and celebrate.

The Hub will become the new home for:

  • Glenroy Library.
  • The Glenroy Memorial Kindergarten.
  • Maternal child health services.
  • A community health provider
  • Neighbourhood learning and childcare services.

The co-location of these community services will provide greater service offerings and social opportunities to the Glenroy community.

Sustainability

The Wheatsheaf Community Hub will demonstrate Council's commitment to world-leading, sustainable design. The Hub may be the first community centre in Australia to be Passive House-certified. This means that the Hub will have a high standard of environmental performance including low-energy use and high-comfort to support the health and well-being of users.
