Planning approval for new Aveo $60m Sunshine Coast retirement facility

Set within Harmony, the $3 billion master planned community at Palmview; the 5.4-hectare site will accommodate 138 independent living units, providing homes to more than 200 seniors upon completion.


The Aveo Palmview facility will commence construction in April 2018 and will be built over five stages featuring two and three-bedroom units, with the first 63 units planned in the first stage with completion anticipated by 30 June 2020.


Amenities also planned in the first stage include a community centre featuring a café, media room, recreational and entertaining areas, as well as a range of professional health and wellness facilities.


Aveo Group CEO Geoff Grady said, “We have invested heavily into the region to support the strong demand for high quality retirement communities, only late last year celebrating the completion of the $20 million final stage at Aveo Peregian Springs Country Club to support seniors seeking a sea change now.


Located in the heart of the Sunshine Coast on 378 hectares, Harmony will deliver more than 4,800 homes for 12,000 future residents, 100 hectares of open space and a 60km network of pedestrian path and cycle ways.


AVID Property Group General Manager Queensland Bruce Harper said intergenerational planning has been an important focus at Harmony since the project’s inception more than a decade ago.


“In the past, most new residential developments really only catered towards younger families, with the expectation that people would move on as their circumstances changed,” Mr Harper said.


“These communities didn’t tend to provide appropriate facilities for a wide range of people – like teenagers, for example, or to enable older people to remain in their community as they aged.”


Aveo will work with AVID Property Group to deliver a community for life for seniors, based around the concepts of wellness and interaction by making sure residents stay connected to the wider community.
