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.
