The site encompasses 197 Independent Living Units (ILU) and a Community Centre totalling 10 ha.
The master planning of this village has a prime focus on environmental sustainable design. The Community Centre has ESD initiatives such as a gas cogeneration plant producing clean electricity to power the facility and using the bi-product to heat the pool and air conditioning. All of the ILU’s obtained a 6 Star Energy rating and areas within the green public spaces have incorporated underground storm water retention tanks.
The centre provides rooms and staffing services for the elderly including medical suites, hair dressers, therapy rooms and pool.
The project achieved the 2008 Sustainability Victoria Grant for ‘Retirement Village of the Future’.
