“Booming over 50s Resorts Shaking up Retirement Sector“   is being reported all over Australia. Luxury lifestyle communities for the over 50s has exploded over the past few years and we have taken the opportunity to change the face of the retirement sector by creating an affordable retirement community product which is not in a large estate.

Neighborhood 55 is based on the model for apartments that are environmentally, socially and financially sustainable. The ultimate goal is to provide quality urban housing at an affordable price by simplifying both the development process and the building itself.

The development will feature a highly energy efficient design, utilizing structural insulated panels supported by double glazed aluminum windows and high levels of insulation throughout.

We aim to create social, affordable housing & indeed remind ourselves of the importance of social responsibility

Neighborhood 55 in Regional Eastern Victoria will be a unique offering for the over 50s market which traditionally comprises million dollar price entry projects.

The 1.395 hectare site of the former Maryland’s Country House is situated in the foothills of Melbourne’s closest alpine resort Marysville, with the picturesque drive from Melbourne part of the appeal.

We will create a premium collection of apartment homes, exclusively for the over 50 s market. Making the decision to downsize doesn’t mean compromising on finish amenities and design.Far from a retirement home in a traditional sense, Neighborhood 55 is designed to set new benchmarks in 50s living. The project will offer luxury with an eco-friendly design sensibility and a focus on low-maintenance living.

This community will be tailored to maximize lifestyle while offering no exit fees and the opportunity to secure solid capital gains. Each home will feature an entertaining terrace and overlook gardens inspired by traditional Italian loggias with water features and trellised planting

 There is a clear need in regional markets for high quality, reasonably priced housing

KPG’s building solutions will provide large-scale, rapid and cost-effective construction offering all the benefits of modular construction but with the high quality and design flexibility of traditional building.

The Focus will be on ‘retreading’ rather than ‘retiring’.

Our approach goes beyond the design of the dwelling and integrates it with the design of the community realm to create a stronger and more cohesive design outcome created by the masterplan that will grow with the community and help create a truly better place to live.

Today’s baby boomers have high expectations for their retirement lifestyle, so location and design of the apartment home are both vitally important.

KPG Equity Australia  have invested much time into researching market trends, finding the right site and developing a master plan that responds to the needs of modern seniors.                                 

The Neighborhood 55 Vision is to create a community that would allow its residents the opportunity to enjoy the best time of their lives. Not only is the development a unique offering for the over 50s demographic, but the quality of construction and design will be outstanding.  Integral to the Neighborhood 55 lifestyle will be a luxury facility that will include a club lounge, games room, a library, bowls club, craft room, workshop, floodlit tennis court, indoor heated pool and outdoor lagoon pool, spa and gym, sauna, steam room & wine room as well as utilizing the nearby Vibe Hotel & Resort facilities

Vibe Hotels is located in the much sought after single street commercial precinct and is operated by the internationally recognised Toga Hospitality Group also responsible for Medina Apartment Hotels and Travelodge.Vibe Hotels has added character, quality and social benefit to Marysville and has created 60 full time jobs and provided a tangible economic stimulus to tourism and private sector business investment. The Victorian Government provided $19 million towards the Hotel Resort Project, which offers a 100 room 4 star hotels, conferencing facilities for 300 people, café, restaurant and day spa.
