The development of Australia’s newest, championship-quality bowling green will be at the centre of The Green Tarragindi Retirement Village.
The first sod was turned on Thursday, August 26 at the site of The Green Tarragindi Retirement Village. The single-stage development, which will adjoin the new Tarragindi Bowls Club and club house, will be delivered under a partnership between RetireAustralia and the Yeronga Services and Community Club. It will take 18 months to complete.
A community with care at its heart
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.”
Unique features 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.
The new Tarragindi Bowls Club
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.
Designed for sustainability
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.
