Opening of The Rise at Wood Glen meets growing demand for luxury retirement living on the Central Coast

The Central Coast’s first luxury vertical retirement village has officially opened today with The Rise at Wood Glen addressing a shortage of premium lifestyle offerings within the region.

The first stage of the $46 million RetireAustralia apartment project features a collection of 24 contemporary residences unlike anything seen before on the Coast, with high quality finishes and expansive balconies opening up to sweeping valley views.

The Rise’s first residents have already started moving into their new homes, with  construction on the project’s next stage expected to start later this year due to the strong interest.

Member for Terrigal and Parlimentary Secretary for the Central Coast, Adam Crouch, joined RetireAustralia representatives at a ribbon-cutting ceremony and tour of The Rise, which is located in the popular Wood Glen Retirement Village at Erina.

RetireAustralia Chief Executive Officer Dr Brett Robinson said The Rise answered a growing demand for high quality retirement living options in the region by offering world-class designs and access to a wide array of exclusive resident amenities in a prime location close to everything the Coast had to offer.

“The Rise is the first luxury vertical retirement village on the Central Coast and we have been thrilled to see our vision swiftly springing to life over the past 18 months of its construction,’’ said Dr Robinson.

“The Rise caters for a fundamental shift in the way modern downsizers are now viewing retirement and we believe the development will herald a new standard for the industry across the region.

“Our philosophy has been to been to create a lifestyle without compromise for residents at The Rise, along with tailored home care services to help them maintain their independence.

“We’ve already welcomed our first residents and we are looking forward to many more moving in during the weeks ahead.’’

Every apartment within The Rise has been designed for a low-maintenance lifestyle and optimised for ease of living and mobility. They showcase contemporary lines, floor-to-ceiling glass, the perfect north-east aspect, a generous kitchen, European appliances, and ample storage.

The Rise is situated just over an hour’s drive from Sydney, making it a highly appealing option for retirees who want to enjoy a premier lifestyle in a coastal location while still being close to an international city.

Residents will enjoy access to Wood Glen’s wide range of exclusive community facilities, including a resort-style lodge and bar, auditorium, hairdressing salon, library, pool, spa, gymnasium, outdoor entertainment areas and bowls green.

Nestled at the base of Kincumba Mountain Reserve and surrounded by bushland, Wood Glen is across the road from Erina Fair Shopping Centre and close to the best attractions the region has to offer, including beautiful beaches, cafes, shops and entertainment.

Designed by leading seniors living architects Marchese Partners, the two and three-bedroom apartments in The Rise are priced from $599,000.

The Rise is RetireAustralia’s second major new investment in the Central Coast, following the opening of Glengara Care at Tumbu Umbi in 2019 as a genuine alternative to traditional aged care, giving residents unprecedented choice and independence.
