Uniting’s 16-storey vertical retirement village in northwest Sydney gets the green light

Published on

The Not For Profit has been given the go ahead for a proposed $100 million mixed use tower in Epping, 22km northwest from Sydney’s CBD.

As we reported here, the 16-storey tower will be located less than 500 metres from the 29-storey retirement village and aged care development by Stockland, with 205 apartments and 132 aged care beds operated by Opal.

Uniting had originally intended to build a 19-storey tower at the site, but plans lodged in September 2018 were scaled back after community concern about the building’s height.

Uniting’s new development will house 96 independent living units when complete, in addition a 60-bed residential aged care facility, and 34 care and assisted living apartments designed by architectural firm Turner.
