A Sydney-based property investment company has sparked outrage for raising the issue of Aboriginal residents in Redfern leaving the area as a selling point.

In advertising luxury units on its website, Great Fortune Investments claimed First Nations people had "moved out" of Redfern.

The Social Justice Commissioner Mick Gooda is among those to condemn the comments, which have since been taken off the site.

The Australian newspaper reports New South Wales Aboriginal Affairs Minister Victor Dominello has referred the matter to the state's Anti-Discrimination Board.

Redfern resident and Chair of the Mudgin-gal Aboriginal Women's Centre Bronwyn Penrith told SBS World News Aboriginal people make Redfern what it is.
