New Brisbane retirement village to bowl over residents

A championship-quality bowling green will be the sporting centrepiece of a new $80 million retirement community set to be built in Brisbane.

Construction of the single-stage development The Green, at Tarragindi which will adjoin the new Tarragindi Bowls Club and club house, is expected to start later this year and will take 18 months to complete. It will be delivered under a partnership between RetireAustralia and the Yeronga Services and Community Club.

Expressions of interest to secure one of the community’s independent living apartments are now being invited, with several already secured.

Outdoor entertainment will be a hallmark of the new Tarragindi community, with 70% of the site dedicated to open space. It will include a landscaped recreational parkland with communal barbecue areas, common lawn, productive garden and children’s playground.

Just 8km to Brisbane’s CBD, parks, schools, shops, restaurants, medical services, and culture and buzz of inner-city life are just a stone’s throw away.

The Green features 94 independent living apartments, 11 different apartment types (most featuring stunning city or bushland views), and underground parking. Other features include a private cinema, library, indoor and outdoor gym.

All residents will also enjoy access to the Tarragindi Bowls Club, which will proudly boast a championship-quality bowling green.

RetireAustralia CEO, Brett Robinson said he was looking forward to seeing The Green come to life.

He said The Green would resonate with the downsizer, owner-occupier market – especially people who didn’t see themselves living in a traditional retirement village.

“The Green, like all our villages, is designed to offer choice, support, social connection and peace of mind,” he said.

“We enhance these elements with a diverse range of service, care and lifestyle options to ensure we continue to meet our residents’ needs.

“We not only design homes, but we also build communities people love to make their own.

“The Green will be one of those – a thriving community with care at its heart.”

Residents will also be able to choose from a range of services including personal care, domestic support and clinical care, which can be tailored to their individual needs, and funded privately or if eligible, through a government funded care package.
