LDK Seniors’ Living launched the start of construction of their second seniors’ living village in Canberra today with a soil turning event in the morning and a celebration dinner at the National Arboretum.
LDK’s Amberfield village is a $250 million development comprising of 55 villas and 272 apartments. The village is designed to offer a vibrant lifestyle to seniors, with unparalleled amenities, including a café, bar, restaurant, wellness centre, on-site grocer, barber, salon, gym, theatre, dog and walking parks. As with all LDK villages, it is underpinned by LDK’s One Move Promise® that assures residents access to all levels of care along their ageing journey in a seamless continuum of care model.
Dr Marisa Paterson MLA, Member for Murrumbidgee, who officiated at the soil turning, said, “I am so pleased that as part of their growth and expansion plans in Canberra, that LDK Seniors’ Living has chosen Murrumbidgee for their second village development, Amberfield. The Murrumbidgee has been attracting many reputable amenities and it is wonderful to be having a village of this distinction that will offer such a vibrant lifestyle, in the local area. It is a magnificent location, and I look forward to welcoming new residents to Murrumbidgee in the near future.
LDK CEO Byron Cannon said “Similar to our current community in Greenway Views, Amberfield has seen strong demand and support, with 52 of our villas sold prior to going to the open market. We’re looking forward to welcoming our first Amberfield residents in early 2024.
“LDK has been operating in Canberra for three years and we have worked hard to entrench our values of Love, Decency & Kindness in every aspect. Everything we do, every decision we make, for residents, and for team members, is guided by this. It is a gratifying reputation to have built with our residents, families, staff and members of the Canberra community. We are proud of the outcomes we have achieved and are very pleased to be able to expand our reach to meet the increasing demand for our services. A great amount of appreciation goes out to everyone who has worked with, and helped us, bring our Amberfield village to fruition.
Our seniors are increasingly more astute and discerning when looking for a community where they can maintain their independence, remain engaged and lead a purposeful life throughout all stages of ageing. We plan on continuing to invest and grow here. Canberra has been voted the happiest city, the best city to live in and the best city to visit – it could well be the best city to retire in as well,” Mr Cannon said.
