Find out about Jacana Self Storage. Jacana is a suburb of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, 16 km north from Melbourne’s central business district and 29.9 km away from where City West Storage is located. Jacana had a population of 1,940 as of the 2011 Census.
The name Jacana was applied to an area between Broadmeadows and Glenroy in the 1950s by the Housing Commission of Victoria (HCV). The name comes from Jacana Street, to the east of the Craigieburn railway line (therefore, technically not in Jacana itself). Both the street and the suburb are slightly to the north of the Jacana railway station, which was built to service the suburb in 1959. However, Jacana as a built landscape did not spring fully formed under the aegis of the HCV.
The majority of Jacana housing was erected by the Housing Commission of Victoria either in the later 1950s, early 60s or in the early 1970s. It is mainly of brick construction with pre-cast concrete elements as per the HCV method of the 1950s-60s. The average housing price in Jacana in 2001 was $131, 750; today premium streets such as Landy and Freeman Streets command prices over $300 000 as a result of the housing boom earlier in the decade. While this is a major increase over a short period of time, prices in Jacana are still far below the average for Melbourne.
