The two- and three-bedroom display units at the Durack Gardens retirement village at Durack, 22km southeast of the Darwin CBD, were officially opened last weekend.
The first stage of 16 homes is now expected to be open by December with 60 units in total planned for the site, which has been developed by local companies McMahon Services and GJ Gardner Homes Darwin. McMahon Services has also acquired 75 units at the nearby Tiwi Gardens retirement village.
McMahon NT Managing Director David McMahon told NT News the company welcomed recent announcements by the Territory Government that it would be making more land available for retirement living development.
“We are big believers in what the government is trying to achieve,” he said. “In general we are excited about what is ahead given the Defence expenditure and the $1.75 billion infrastructure expenditure which has also been announced.”
