RETIREES SEEKING QUALITY
Stage two of the Kingsford Terrace retirement village in Corinda is gearing up for construction to start on the 3ha site.
Queensland construction company McNab has been awarded the second stage and is working with O’Neill Architecture to finalise design works and get ready to make the first dig in the coming months.
McNab construction manager Mark Jewell said the company was seeing a growing need for quality retirement living and aged-care facilities throughout Brisbane.
“Residents moving into high-quality retirement living are typically seeking to downsize from the family home and free up time and effort to pursue personal interests rather than maintain a large home and yard,” Mr Jewell said. “We can see why retirement projects like this are so popular with residents, as they get the very best when it comes to apartment design and quality, community and leisure facilities, as well as a safe and caring environment.”
Being developed by BlueSky Private Real Estate, and operated by Aura, stage two will include 53 luxury studio, two and threebedroom independent living apartments, across five storeys.
Mr Jewell said McNab was delivering more than just a building to the project.
“Our role is more than just delivering a highquality building on time, it’s also about ensuring the handover and moving-in process for residents is a happy and relaxed experience,” he said.
Kingsford Terrace’s stage one apartments in Litchfield are available now, with the second stage, Duporth, due for completion mid next year. Along with the second stage, construction will also start on the community facilities, to include a heated pool, gym, beauty and hair salon, and allied health.
In Corinda, the community is close to shops, entertainment, medical services and sporting clubs.
