The spirit of com­mu­nity

The Courier-Mail - Home - - VILLAGE SUPPORT -

Con­struc­tion is set to start on a re­tire­ment vil­lage at Auchen­flower, sur­round­ing the Holy Spirit Church.

St Faber’s Green, de­vel­oped by Green­gate, will fea­ture ex­cit­ing land­mark ar­chi­tec­ture, un­matched views, space, light, gar­dens, beau­ti­ful in­te­ri­ors and com­mu­nity spa­ces.

St Faber’s Green sales con­sul­tant Louise Feeney said the re­tire­ment vil­lage was named by late Fa­ther Peter Quin who was the par­ish priest for more than 12 years.

“The new vil­lage will em­body a sense of in­clu­sive­ness and ac­knowl­edg­ment of the site’s rich his­tory,” Ms Feeney said. “The fi­nal vil­lage will fea­ture three build­ings of dif­fer­ent heights ris­ing above the tree-scape of Auchen­flower.

“The build­ings will take de­sign in­spi­ra­tion from the beau­ti­ful homes in the area and from the site’s orig­i­nal grand home of for­mer Queens­land pre­mier Thomas McIl­wraith.”

The stan­dard of liv­ing is as­sured, with Green­gate’s first Bris­bane vil­lage, St Luke’s Green be­ing awarded the Prop­erty Coun­cil’s Na­tional Award for De­sign Ex­cel­lence in recog­ni­tion of its qual­ity and de­sign.
