Our residents will be active community members who will join and support local clubs and causes, and shop locally. We will offer a range of support needed to ‘age in place’. This means providing the living environment and support needed for the years ahead, allowing our residents to make their home in New Farm for as long as possible.
Two and three-bedroom dwellings are planned to offer residents with choice as to their preferred living space. ‘Spare’ rooms are popular with retirees as a study or craft room, or additional living space for family and guest visits.
The ‘Queenslander’ on our land at 11 Sargent Street is integrated into the design. The building will be re-located to the corner of Sydney Street and Sargent Street, where it will blend with the streetscape.
When re-located, we will undertake an extensive renovation to transition the Queenslander into a wellness centre, providing a range of physical, nutritional and mental wellbeing services for our residents. We will also base our in-home care service team on site. The team will continue to provide in-home care to local clients and support residents to ensure they remain able and independent and living their best possible life.
Bolton Clarke will actively manage the site. A Bolton Clarke onsite manager will be available to residents and as a point of contact for the community.
We are likely to need up to eight (8) people to help us manage the property, and we would prefer to employ locals depending on skills and experience. Our local management team will ensure the property is maintained to very high standards, in perpetuity.
We will establish a community reference group and invite our neighbours to become members and to participate in open days and events. Residents may remember our annual Carols by Candlelight event held at Treetops and events including our Harmony day celebrations.
