The nominees for Urban Development Institute of Australia (UDIA) NSW Awards for Excellence in Retirement Living feature three new Sydney retirement villages that showcase the future for the sector.
Anglicare’s Minto Gardens (pictured above) offers a range of one-, two-, and two-bedroom plus study retirement living apartments designed by architects GroupGSA, with two-bedroom units selling for $321,500.
Minto Gardens is next to the Porter Lodge residential care home, which is also a finalist in the aged care category.
The second finalist is The Rose by Moran (pictured right) in Wahroonga on Sydney’s Upper North Shore, which promises “the highest standard of living with the greatest level of personal well-being”.
There are 34 two- and three-bedroom residences with prices starting at $1.1 million and rising to $2.75 million, designed by Antoniades Architects.
The third finalist is Uniting Bowden Brae (pictured right) in Normanhurst, also in Sydney’s Upper North Shore. It features 140 two-, two plus study and three-bedroom apartments, from $850,000 to $1.6 million, designed by PTW Architects.
Uniting’s Bowden Brae Gardens aged care home is adjacent.
The winner will be announced at UDIA NSW’s Gala Dinner at The Star Sydney on 12 August.
