Last week, it was Arcare pushing their newest 125-bed aged care home at St Ives through the NSW Land and Environment Court after a battle with Ku-ring-gai Council.
This week, two retirement living operators have done the same against the same Council after the Court approved the construction of two separate developments in the same suburb.
The first development at 26 Memorial Ave, near the town centre will see a single-storey home demolished to make way for a $3.2 million eight-unit development backing onto the St Ives Baptist Church put forward by Angus Rimmer, the General Manager at Avalon Beach RSL Club, and Yue Wang.
The second – a $16.5 million development by HMR Developments at 14-18 Kitchener St (pictured) in the suburb’s north – will result in three homes being knocked down to build 20 seniors’ apartments would be built across three buildings along with basement parking and outdoor terraces.
HMR Developments was founded by Sunshine Coast property icon Harry Reed and has been building projects on the Sunshine Coast for over 30 years.
