Australia’s newest bowling green to be built at The Green

The development of Australia’s newest, championship-quality bowling green will be at the centre of RetireAustralia’s $80 million retirement community, The Green, at Tarragindi.

The first sod was turned on Thursday, August 26 at the site of the single-stage development, which will adjoin the new Tarragindi Bowls Club and club house. The project will be delivered under a partnership between RetireAustralia and the Yeronga Services and Community Club and will take 18 months to complete.

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 services and care 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.”

Hutchinson Builders have been awarded the construction contract for the project.

“Hutchies is absolutely delighted to be working on this unique project,” Hutchinson Builders chairman Scott Hutchinson said.

“The overgrown site has been sitting dormant for a long time so we can’t wait to get started and turn it into something that will be a big asset to the community with many amenities for locals and residents of The Green.”

The Green features 94 independent living apartments, 11 different apartment types (most featuring stunning city or bushland views), and underground parking. Other features include a private cinema, library, indoor and outdoor gym.

Just 8km to Brisbane’s CBD, parks, schools, shops, restaurants, medical services, and culture and buzz of inner-city life are just a stone’s throw away.

All residents will also enjoy access to the Tarragindi Bowls Club, which will proudly boast a championship-quality bowling green.

Nathan Young from the Yeronga Services Club said having the country’s newest bowling green at the heart of The Green development would be a big drawcard for future residents and the local community.

“A lot of hard work and consideration has gone into this project so it’s exciting to see it get under way and I hope it will be enjoyed by our valued members and the community for many years to come,” he said.

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.

The Green is an exemplar in the field of evidence-based home and community design principles, which take all aspects of sustainability and ageing well into account.

Every apartment is carefully considered in design layout and interior finishes to cater to residents’ needs such as hearing loss or visual impairment.

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.

Expressions of interest to secure one of the community’s independent living apartments are now being invited, with several already secured.
