QLD Housing Minister applauds Halcyon's commitment to Australian seniors

September 01, 2020

Halcyon has accelerated construction on three of its communities as demand from downsizers in South East Queensland intensifies.

The release of new homes at Halcyon Rise in Logan Reserve, Halcyon Greens in Pimpama and B by Halcyon in Buderim have been moved forward from November to satisfy interest.

State Minister for Housing and Public Works Mick de Brenni toured Halcyon Greens recently. “Halcyon’s commitment to providing outstanding masterplanned communities with quality homes and a range of facilities to keep our Queensland seniors active and socially connected is to be applauded,” Minister de Brenni said.

“Halcyon were the pioneers for providing a real alternative for downsizers who wanted to leave their family home but wanted the connection and freedom that a seniors lifestyle community offers.”

Minister de Brenni said Halcyon’s decision would have a positive effect on the Queensland economy. “The Palasczuk Government is delivering a plan to protect Queensland’s economy from the global impacts of COVID-19, so we welcome Halcyon’s investment that will also support Queensland tradies,” Minister de Brenni said.

Halcyon’s General Manager of Sales and Construction Scott Ng said the decision to increase construction would also benefit the Queensland economy as more local jobs were created to meet the workload.

“We have taken a measured approach to construction during the last six months as we all navigate a path through COVID-19, but it is clear from our discussions with buyers that the pandemic has been a catalyst for them to make the move to a lifestyle community,” he said.
