Media release

Stockland’s new $63 million Birtinya Retirement Village continues to raise the bar in the creation of high lifestyle, low maintenance living on the coast.

The eight-storey development which commenced construction in November 2016, will offer residents stunning views of Lake Kawana or across to the Glasshouse Mountains hinterland.

Construction of the 140 apartments has now reached level 6 and is ramping up to meet demand, with strong interest both locally and from interstate. Internal fitouts have already begun with stone benchtops, luxurious tiles and carpets to feature in each apartment.

Last month, the village opened its new Sales and Information Centre offering potential future residents the chance to meet with a sales consultant as well as see and feel samples first hand.

Paul Keleher, Stockland Regional Development Manager, said: “We are making great progress on Birtinya Retirement Village, each day we are closer to a new key milestone in delivering this high lifestyle, low maintenance development for Australian seniors”

“We know that our customers want to live in beautiful places, demand a high level of services, and enjoy a great lifestyle. Birtinya Retirement Village will offer all of this and more, encouraging happier, healthier residents with world class health and wellbeing services right on their doorstep.”

Upon completion, Birtinya Retirement Village will include a mix of one, two and three bedroom low-maintenance apartments and secure parking in the basement.

All residents will enjoy access to an integrated 660 square metre clubhouse, gymnasium, wellness centre, outdoor pool, complete with covered outdoor decks and dining areas and landscaped, manicured gardens within the village. Stockland is planning for the new vertical village to be ready for the first residents to move in by early 2018.

The new village will be walking distance to the world-class $5 billion Sunshine Coast Health Precinct which includes the new Sunshine Coast Public Hospital, Sunshine Coast University Private Hospital and Sunshine Coast Health Institute.

Paul Keleher continues,: “Birtinya Retirement Village will offer residents all of the benefits of Sunshine Coast living with easy access to restaurants, café’s, the beach, lake front walking paths and everything the nearby retail and business centres of Mooloolaba and Maroochydore have to offer.” “By 2056 a quarter of our population will be over the age of 65. Vertical villages like this create options for older Australians to downsize and move into connected communities with centralised health and lifestyle services.”

The first public release is coming soon with pricing starting from $360,000 for a one bedroom apartment plus study.

Stockland has also committed to a 4 Star Green Star rating for the new Birtinya Retirement Village.
