Hills to Hawkesbury Living Magazine - - Local Business -

Stock­land, Aus­tralia’s largest res­i­den­tial de­vel­oper and a lead­ing Re­tire­ment Liv­ing provider, con­tin­ues to meet the chang­ing needs of Aus­tralians look­ing to down­size with its new in­no­va­tive prod­uct - ‘As­pire’ by Stock­land.

As­pire is a pur­pose-built neigh­bour­hood de­signed for peo­ple over 55*, fea­tur­ing modern, low-main­te­nance homes, sur­rounded by high qual­ity com­mu­nity fa­cil­i­ties. Un­like tra­di­tional Re­tire­ment Liv­ing, the com­mu­nity is struc­tured un­der com­mu­nity ti­tle, with all costs paid up­front, mean­ing res­i­dents re­tain all cap­i­tal gains and com­plete own­er­ship of their home and land.**

Stephen Bull, Group Ex­ec­u­tive and CEO of Re­tire­ment Liv­ing at Stock­land, said: “With only 5% of Aus­tralia’s pop­u­la­tion cur­rently choos­ing to live within a Re­tire­ment Vil­lage, we were in­spired to cre­ate a new prod­uct to broaden our cus­tomer reach and meet the needs of the modern day re­tiree.

“As­pire is for cus­tomers who want to down­size from the big fam­ily home but are seek­ing an al­ter­na­tive to mov­ing into an apart­ment or a tra­di­tional Re­tire­ment Liv­ing Vil­lage.

The first As­pire com­mu­nity is now un­der con­struc­tion in the heart of the 198 hectare Elara mas­ter­planned com­mu­nity in Mars­den Park. Upon com­ple­tion, the $65 mil­lion com­mu­nity will in­clude 114 sin­gle storey-homes, fu­ture proofed with wider hall­ways and door­ways.

As­pire at Elara will also fea­ture a lux­u­ri­ous club­house for the ex­clu­sive use of its res­i­dents and their friends, in­clud­ing a re­sort style pool with a cov­ered al­fresco dining area as well as a bar, lounge, gym and bil­liard room. The first res­i­dents are ex­pected to move in by mid-2018.

Lo­cated within Syd­ney’s North West Growth Cen­tre, Elara is 6km from the Schofields Train Sta­tion and a 20 minute drive from Blacktown, Nor­west Busi­ness Park and the Par­ra­matta CBD. The com­mu­nity is well po­si­tioned within easy walk­ing dis­tance to the planned Elara Med­i­cal Cen­tre, a pro­posed Child­care Cen­tre and close to lo­cal shops and ser­vices at the fu­ture Elara town cen­tre.

Stephen Bull con­tin­ues, “Stock­land is com­mit­ted to de­sign­ing and de­vel­op­ing qual­ity com­mu­ni­ties to re­flect the chang­ing needs of all Aus­tralians. Our new As­pire prod­uct shows our com­mit­ment to innovation that goes above and be­yond sim­ply meet­ing the needs of re­tirees, to sur­pass their ex­pec­ta­tions in ev­ery way.”
