Media release

Stockland today celebrated reaching the highest point of construction on a vertical retirement community at the $590 million Newport waterside community on the Redcliffe Peninsula in Queensland.

The $69 million project will see Stockland develop 125 modern, architecturally designed apartments over six levels, linked by a central, landscaped podium and more than 3500 square metres of green and outdoor recreation space.

Newport Retirement Living will be located at the heart of the Newport community, adjacent to the future town centre and marina, offering residents a relaxed waterside retirement, with alfresco eateries and eclectic boutiques, leafy foreshore parks and a 22-hectare lake with high mast access to Moreton Bay.

Pauline Barton, Stockland Regional Development Manager, said: “It’s great to see our vision for Newport Retirement Living coming to life. Our goal was to create a highly connected and accessible community, that enhances liveability and encourages residents to be social, active and enjoy a healthy bayside lifestyle.

“Today’s retirees expect to live in beautiful places, enjoy a great lifestyle and demand a high level of services. In designing Newport Retirement Living we wanted to show that people can upsize their quality of life when they chose to downsize their homes.”

Due for completion between August - October 2019, Newport Retirement Living will include a mix of 125 premium two and three bedroom apartments, offering stunning views of the future Newport Lake, Moreton Bay and the Glasshouse Mountains hinterland.

Designed for the active retiree, Newport Retirement Living will offer residents a number of high-end facilities including a wellness hub with a gym and swimming pool, billiards room, wi-fi enabled library and an alfresco barbeque area featuring a living community table to grow herbs and use when cooking.

Located in the heart of Stockland’s $590 million Newport development, residents will have easy access to an array of amenities in the broader Newport Community including bayside parks, kilometres of cycling and walking paths and an abundance of water-based leisure opportunities such as fishing and kayaking.

Pauline Barton continues, “We’re rethinking the traditional retirement living model, providing more options for over 55’s to live in well-designed, accessible and low maintenance communities, with great access to health and lifestyle facilities and more options to age-in-place.

“Most importantly, we want to provide residents with the opportunity to remain in the communities they know and love, close to families, friends and local services.”

Newport Retirement Living’s high lifestyle, low maintenance apartments will be available from $449,000. Exit fees and other charges are payable.

For enquiries customers can visit the Newport Sales and Information Centre on the corner of Griffith Road and Boardman Road to meet with a sales consultant. Newport Retirement Living’s brand new display unit will be open for viewing from Wednesday 5th December. To schedule an appointment call 1800 72 71 70.
