Construction of The Green in Tarragindi Progressing Well

Construction is well underway at The Green, a planned retirement community in Tarragindi with over 70 per cent  of the space dedicated to open spaces and sprawling community gardens.

The shared green space at The Green is slowly transforming into a lush landscape, thanks to a number of newly planted trees that are taking root in their new homes.

Construction of the Bowls Clubhouse and bowling green are now over 50 per cent complete. Once finished, the clubhouse is expected to become the go-to place for socialisation, with its planned cafe and amenities.

Experts from Retirement Care Solutions offered helpful downsizing tips and tricks to prospective residents during a presentation held o the 15th of June 2023. Updates on the construction status of the apartments and community spaces were also provided. A new partnership with a local business was also announced.

The Green offers a range of 11 floorplans, each with different orientations corresponding to the points of a compass. Whether residents desire sweeping views of the city, a prime spot to watch competitive matches on the Tarragindi Bowls Club’s championship green, or a secluded forest ambience, the developer’s intent is to have an apartment to suit every preference. 

The development also emphasises the advantages of accessibility to transportation, parks, restaurants, shops, and health services are readily available, enhancing the convenience and comfort of everyday living.

Amenities at The Green include a community centre, activity and multipurpose spaces, gymnasium, yoga lawn, bowls green, and clubhouse. Residents will have access to a workshop, cinema, library, resident lounge, barbecue area, resident kitchen and dining area, and a community garden.

The Green Retirement Site Adjoining Tarragindi Bowls Club To Open in Early 2023

Construction is well underway at The Green, the new retirement community that is also expected to rejuvenate the Tarragindi Bowls Club. The site is expected to open in early 2023. 

Since mid-2021, the Tarragindi Bowls Club has temporarily made the Salisbury Sports and Community Club its home following the start of the retirement village’s construction.

According to RetireAustralia, the bowls club will remain the central recreational site of the community, once it opens, and will feature a 10-rink championship-quality bowling green. 

All residents of The Green will automatically get a free membership to the bowls club, where they could also invite friends to play or enjoy great food at the cafe. The redevelopment will also see additional car parking areas for the visitors. 

“So whether you take bowls seriously or you just seriously want to have fun, you’ll be able to socialise over a friendly bowls match or establish your legendary status as a fierce competitor on the lawn.”  

The Green provides 92 units with at least a dozen carefully considered apartment designs. Emergency support will also be available 24/7, while professional home care services can also be accessed on your terms—occasionally or daily.

Meanwhile, the Tarragindi Bowls Club has been holding regular play days at the Salisbury Bowls Club every Tuesday (9:00 a.m.), Thursday (1:00 p.m.), Saturday (1:00 p.m.). The Brekky Bowls held every second Sunday of the month has also been maintained.

Revival of the Tarragindi Bowls Club Included in The Green

The Green, the residential retirement facility set for construction in Tarragindi, also includes plans to ‘revive’ the Tarragindi Bowls Club.

In 2018, the Tarragindi Bowls Club moved to the Salisbury Sports and Community Club because of the planned redevelopment. In August 2021, RetireAustralia, the developer behind the retirement village project, received approval from the Queensland Planning and Environment Court to bring back the Tarragindi Bowls Club as a full competition bowling green.

RetireAustralia plans to put a championship quality 10-rink bowling facility with a new clubhouse, cafe, and car parking spaces for visitors. The site next to a 94-apartment complex will include large green spaces for the children to play and for the grown-ups to establish a productive garden.

Brett Robinson, the CEO of Retire Australia, said that The Green will be “a landmark development with a shared community” alongside the Yeronga Services and Community Club. The club’s officials believe that the redevelopment will help Tarragindi Bowls Club diversify and survive with new revenue streams amid the changing needs of the locals. 

“All residents of The Green also enjoy free lifetime membership to the Tarragindi Bowls Club, which has been proudly brought back to life as the heart of this thriving community and neighbourhood,” RetireAustralia stated

“Open and accessible to all, the Club is the go-to place for your daily caffeine fix, sunset drinks, leisurely meals or a game on the championship-quality green.”

The Green’s construction timeline has not yet been detailed but it is projected to take place for 18 months.

The Green, a New Retirement Village in Tarragindi, Ready for Construction

Following a simple sod-turning ceremony on Cracknell Road in Tarragindi, construction will soon begin for The Green, a new retirement village that will stand next to the Tarragindi Bowls Club and clubhouse.

A project hatched by Yeronga Services and Community Club and RetireAustralia, the $80-million development of an expansive and beautiful retirement village is projected to start in late 2021 and will take 18 months to finish. However, expressions of interest have been opened as well.

Hutchinson Builders will develop The Green as a community asset that will have 94 apartments for independent living, a private cinema, indoor and outdoor gyms, and a library. Its residents will have access to the bowling green next door.

At least 70 percent of the retirement site will be an open space, where residents may also enjoy a secured and landscaped park with common areas for gardening, barbecuing, and a playground for the grandkids who will come to visit their grandparents.

“The Green, like all our villages, is designed to offer choice, support, social connection and peace of mind,” RetireAustralia CEO Brett Robinson said. “It will be a thriving community with care at its heart.” 

Scott Hutchinson, the chairman of Hutchinson Builders, said that their workers have been eager to get started on building The Green since the site has been passive for a very long time. Nathan Young, the general manager of Yeronga Services and Community Club, believes that this retirement site will be a huge drawcard for the Tarragindi community.
