Aged care provider Infinite Care, which is rapidly expanding, unveiled its biggest project to date – a 3,666sqm site for a seven-storey 142 one-bedroom aged care facility on Chevron Island in Queensland’s Surfers Paradise.
Plans have been submitted to Gold Coast Council for the development, which will have three towers flanking a single podium, and require the demolition of seven existing residential houses.
“The proposal provides an innovative, contemporary and functional aged care facility that will provide accommodation, care and support catering specifically to the needs of older residents seeking a high-level of care within a central and accessible location of the city,” a planning report on the project read.
Its features will include a hair salon, theatre, wellness centre, function rooms, fine dining options, rooftop garden and multiple terraces.
If the application is successful, it will not be Infinite Care’s biggest facility. Edge Hill Orchards, west of Cairns’ CBD, has 182 beds.
Infinite Care, which is owned by ASX-listed MA Financial Group (formerly Moelis Australia), has an aged care portfolio of five refurbished aged care facilities in South Australia and five new facilities in Queensland, with more planned.
The development comes as construction is meant to start on Chevron Island of two $7 million 19-level buildings for Sun Super real estate investment trust Catalyst Health. They will be operated by the Gold Coast’s Odyssey Health Group, a link between aged care veteran Phil Usher and accountancy firm WMS Solutions.
