A development application for a resort-style retirement facility on 85 Greensill Road, Albany Creek near the South Pine River gets the green light.

Pesdev Group’s Greensill Resort Retirement Living will soon rise on Albany Creek as part of a master-planned seniors living proposal across 85 Greensill Road (Stages 3 – 7) and 110 Greensill Road (Stages 1 and 2) — its separate DA has been approved on 20 June 2019.

Situated between Sandy Creek and South Pine River, this development (Stage 3 -7 of the masterplan) will be constructed over five stages and will offer seniors housing plus recreational opportunities.

All existing structures on the proposed 62,580sqm site will be demolished to give way to the construction of six buildings, which will contain the 287 independent living units. 

Access will be provided via Greensill Road, two-vehicle access points in the southwestern and southeastern corners of the development. A total of 353 resident parking bays and 8 visitor parking bays over three levels — with each level having two lifts, fire stairs, and refuse area — will be provided at the basement.

Designed by Red Door Architecture, all proposed buildings will be a mix of three-bedroom, two-bedroom plus study, and two-bedroom units plus ground floor lobby, four sets of fire stairs, two lifts, services rooms, mailboxes, and refuse. 

Each unit will have a kitchen, dining, living room, laundry area, private terraces (ground floor units) and balcony (upper-level units).

Buildings D1 to D4 will be four storeys high and will contain 55 units. Building E1 will also be four storeys high and will contain 38 units. Building E2 will be three storeys high and will contain 29.

The communal facilities and basement car parking area for the overall development will be delivered under Stage 1.

“The proposal demonstrates there is a need for this type of development within the area and the proposal is well aligned with demand conditions anticipated over the next 15 years and will generate a range of positive and economic impacts through the construction and operational phases of the project, together with ensuring that the community have the opportunity to age in place,” the Land Surveying Dynamics town planning report said.
