A massive resort-style retirement complex with almost 400 units has been approved for sites near the South Pine River at Albany Creek, 21km north of Brisbane CBD.
Moreton Bay Regional Council has given the nod to two applications by Pesdev Group, (a privately-owned Brisbane-based property development company) – one for 287 units at 85 Greensill Rd and one for 121 units at 110 Greensill Rd.
Each unit would have two or three bedrooms and the complex, described as an independent and assisted living over 55 resort project, would house about 600 residents in total.
The larger development will consist of six four-storey residential buildings, while the smaller one, on the opposite side of Greensill Rd, will have four three-storey buildings.
Pesdev said they would operate as a combined development, with residents of both having access to a library, a function room, a cafe, a gym, baths and yoga/pilates room and a pool at 110 Greensill Rd.
There are also plans to possibly add aged care facilities in the later stages of the development.
The council approved the 287-unit application, despite it exceeding the dwelling density by having 91 dwellings/ha on the 6.25ha site.
