This landmark project in Jesmond involved Kingston Building undertaking a full Development Management role in the process of creating 22 senior living residences. The DM process included purchasing the land, completing concept and detailed designs, securing Authority approvals to allow the development to evolve, and constructing the 3-storey apartment building. As part of this, Kingston were able to partner with the Oak Tree Group in the delivery of this vertical retirement village.
The project is an architecturally designed retirement village and the first of its kind for this progressive developer in the Hunter Region. The village includes a combination of one-, two- and three-bedroom units over 3 levels, and has been purposefully designed for seniors who desire an independent lifestyle close to amenities, retail shopping centres and transport. A major feature of the project involved creating a stylish, contemporary urban design with a community feel, whilst also incorporating a community centre and covered outdoor area to allow residents to mingle and enjoy the development’s amenities.
This project would not have been possible without extensive collaboration between Oak Tree Group, Kingston and our consultant and subcontractor teams. We congratulate everyone associated with the project and are looking forward to working together again in the future.
These values underpin how we go about our daily business and define the Kingston way.
We are committed to establishing and investing in long term relationships with clients, staff, communities, suppliers and subcontractors in the absolute belief that this approach creates the greatest value for all.
We recognise the critical importance of environmental sustainability including water and energy efficiency, pollution reduction, recycling and the implementation of best practice urban design principles to protect the future health and prosperity of the planet.
We take great pride in constructing quality buildings with exceptionally high standards of finish and client satisfaction. Kingston has received many industry awards for excellence.
