Newcastle based aged care service provider, Maroba Caring Communities and Kingston Building Australia have set their sights high on future living options in Lake Macquarie.
The two organisations have collaborated to develop a multi-storey residential apartment complex in the heart of Belmont that will help meet the ever increasing needs of people who are transitioning or in retirement.
The four-storey development is one of the first ‘highrise’ retirement developments in the region and includes 12 modern apartments as well as a large commercial area on the ground floor. It offers one and two bedroom apartments that are large and spacious with generous balconies. Each is appointed with gourmet kitchens and European appliances. Residents will also have access to Maroba’s wellness and support programs. There is secure residential car parking and a large north facing shared outdoor courtyard.
Maroba CEO, Viv Allanson said that Maroba on Macquarie was the modern approach to retirement living.
“The one and two bedroom apartments have been designed to suit people who are downsizing their current homes to upsize their lifestyle,” she said
“Maroba on Macquarie will be beautifully appointed by the team at Kingston Building Australia. It is located conveniently to Belmont’s shopping and commercial area. The apartments are priced to be affordable, low maintenance and easy to live in.
“There has been a lot of media attention locally about the growth in aged care developments. An important part of this is about providing the right kind of living options across the region. Belmont is one of lake Macquarie’s most vibrant and growing centres. It is supported by a great deal of lifestyle and health infrastructure that makes it an attractive place to live – particularly for people who are looking for an easier alternative to downsizing their family home.
“We are excited and humbled to be working with the amazing team at Kingston Building Australia who have created beautiful spaces for our community. We truly believe that Macquarie street will set the bar both figuratively and literally. This is an exciting opportunity for Maroba and for our community,” Ms Allanson said.
Construction is expected to begin later this year with apartments currently being sold by the Maroba Caring Communities team starting from just over $400,000.
