A championship-quality bowling green will be the centrepiece of an $80 million retirement community to be built alongside a new recreation club in Brisbane's inner-south.
RetireAustralia has launched its The Green retirement living project, which will be constructed at the same time as the new Tarragindi Bowls Club.
Construction of both projects is expected to start later this year and take 18 months to complete.
Expressions of interest to secure one of the community’s independent living apartments are now being invited, with several already secured. Two and three bedroom apartments range from $645,000 to $1.5 million.
Outdoor entertainment will be a hallmark of the new Tarragindi community, with 70 per cent of the site dedicated to open space.
It will include a landscaped recreational parkland with communal barbecue areas, common lawn, productive garden and children’s playground.
RetireAustralia CEO Brett Robinson said he was looking forward to seeing The Green come to life.
He said The Green would resonate with the downsizer, owner-occupier market – especially people who didn’t see themselves living in a traditional retirement village.
The Green, like all our villages, is designed to offer choice, support, social connection and peace of mind,” he said.
“We enhance these elements with a diverse range of service, care and lifestyle options to ensure we continue to meet our residents’ needs.
“We not only design homes, but we also build communities people love to make their own.
“The Green will be one of those – a thriving community with care at its heart.”
The Green features 94 independent living apartments, 11 different apartment types (most featuring city or bushland views), and underground parking.
Other features include a private cinema, library, indoor and outdoor gym.
All residents will also enjoy access to the new Tarragindi Bowls Club.
Residents will also be able to choose from a range of services including personal care, domestic support and clinical care, which can be tailored to their individual needs, and funded privately or if eligible, through a government funded care package.
