Nine new projects that will change the face of retirement living in 2021
Downsizers looking for newly-built retirement living homes will be spoilt for choice during 2021, with construction due to finish on a range of major projects including golf course estates and inner-city villages.
Downsizing.com.au has taken a close look at the projects which are expected to change the face of retirement living this year in New South Wales, the Australian Capital Territory, Queensland and Victoria.
Importantly, the projects include a wide range of price points and apartment options which means downsizers should be able to find a place that perfectly suits your needs, budget, and lifestyle.
Somerset Indooroopilly (Brisbane)
Slated for completion in December 2021, stage one of Aura Holdings’ Somerset Indooroopilly is being built within historic Indooroopilly Golf Club, seven kilometers from Brisbane’s CBD.
Aura Holdings’ director Mark Taylor says golf-lovers will relish the location, with the tee-off just a short stroll or buggy ride away. “Our residents will be retirees or semi-retirees now free of any home or yard maintenance, yet their ‘backyard’ will be 130 hectares of rolling green fairways and towering trees,” he says. “I’ve heard the Indooroopilly Golf Course described as ‘the green lungs of Brisbane city’.’’
Pavilion on Kirra (Gold Coast)
With 10 storeys offering stunning ocean views just 100 metres from the beach, stage one of The Pavilion North Kirra is due for completion in September 2021. Of the 68 one, two and three-bedroom apartments, priced from $495,000 to $1.28 million, only two remain for sale.
Mark Taylor, Aura Holdings’ director, says The Pavilion offers unique beachside retirement living “in a small, connected community with support, if needed, to maintain an independent lifestyle”.
