New villages meet exceptional standards

When it comes to new villages, RetireAustralia is committed to creating communities, not just buildings.

Each of the company’s new villages—three in south-east Queensland and another on the Central Coast—is designed around an ethos and standards that go beyond bricks and mortar.

RetireAustralia’s development ethos is underpinned by five pillars.

1. PLACEMAKING

Placemaking is all about developing a home for residents, a place that’s integrated within the surrounding neighbourhood and makes it easy to maintain connections beyond the village.

To do this, RetireAustralia chooses locations that are walkable and close to transport and services—like The Rise at Wood Glen, which is just minutes from a major shopping centre, cafés and bus stops.

2. BUILDING DESIGN CRITERIA

The place you live should be visually appealing and highly livable.

RetireAustralia’s communities are purpose-built for older residents, so they take every aspect of living into account.

This means a beautiful built form, great resident facilities and secure spaces, as well as subtle touches to ensure your home suits you for many years to come. RetireAustralia’s first Gold Coast community, The Verge at Burleigh GC, is the perfect example, offering expertly designed apartments within a stunning environment.

Each new project meets comprehensive design criteria that has been informed by best practice standards, like the Australian Housing Livable Guidelines.

3. CARE SERVICES

Care services are a core component of RetireAustralia’s new communities, ensuring all residents have peace of mind that their support needs can be met within their home.

All new villages will offer RetireAustralia’s home care services, which are flexible and tailored to meet residents’ individual needs.

Both Fancutts Retirement Living and The Verge at Burleigh GC will also offer care apartments in addition to independent living.

4. TECHNOLOGY

Today’s seniors are more tech-savvy than ever, so their communities come equipped with the latest technologies.

Features like app-activated lights, blinds and shutters, underfloor heating and car park sensors can help make residents’ daily lives easier.

5. SUSTAINABILITY

RetireAustralia is a member of the Green Building Council of Australia and is prioritising sustainability in all new communities.

Energy and water-efficient appliances, low-impact building materials and solar panels are just some of the features you can expect.

Ageless Magazine

There’s nothing quite like a story to bring people together.

That’s why we created Ageless, RetireAustralia’s quarterly magazine. Because great stories never get old.
