Aurrum Aged Care makes first move into QLD with plans for medium-rise aged care facility

Published on

The NSW and VIC-based operator has lodged an application to build a five-storey 120-bed aged care facility on the 5,248sqm site of a former student accommodation block in Toowong, 5km from Brisbane’s CBD, after buying it from the Salvation Army for $10 million back in June.

The Brisbane City Council has already expressed support for the project, which will see 120 units built across three levels along with ground-level community facilities and a rooftop area for staff.

As we reported here, the aged care provider, which is led by former UBS investment banker David di Pilla, had been focusing on its growth in Victoria and the NSW Central Coast where it has a combined 1,100 beds.

Ex-Freemasons’ CEO Alex Shaw is his father-in-law and a founding Aurrum investor.
