Here is a sign of the investment required by operators of ageing village stock to keep them relevant and appealing to today’s market.
Stockland officially unveiled its $1 million newly upgraded Community Centre at The Willows Retirement Village in Winston Hills, 28km west of Sydney CBD, on Monday.
Situated at the heart of The Willows Retirement Village, the 860sqm centre serves over 270 residents and has new flooring, light fittings and fixtures, furnishings and the construction of a brand new café, ‘The Coffee Pot’. Other facilities include a swimming pool, billiards room, hairdresser, amphitheatre, dining room and gym.
Kirrily Lord, General Manager of Retirement Living, Stockland, said the new centre will provide a renewed sense of belonging and comfort to residents.
“The new Community Centre will offer residents a fresh and modern environment in which they can relax, socialise or grab a hot coffee and snack with family and friends in the brand new, fully equipped café.”
