RE­TIREES SEEK­ING QUAL­ITY

The Courier-Mail - Home - - SECOND STAGE BEGINS - BELINDA CHILTON

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.
