Living choices for Doncaster senior community
This new integrated Residential Aged Care Facility and Retirement Village is proposed to be developed on a brownfield site in a middle suburban, residential neighbourhood in close proximity to a major shopping precinct. Featuring a front and rear street frontage, the project presents as a single, integrated development comprising a residential aged care facility located to the north of the site, and a six level independent living apartment development to the south.
The residential aged care facility will accommodate 128 beds over four levels, featuring resident rooms arranged around the perimeter to ensure optimal views and natural light, as well as easy access to the public/social areas set amongst two large courtyards/light wells on each floor.
The independent living apartments are proposed to offer one, two and three bedroom options, all with generous terraces and open plan living configurations.
This project proposes an exciting new integrated community typology tailored to a middle suburban location.
