Third development on the cards for Odyssey

A land settlement marks a milestone in the Queensland provider’s expansion.

Odyssey Lifestyle Communities has expanded its footprint in Queensland by acquiring land on the Gold Coast.

The 4,639 square-metre site in Hope Island, a suburb in the region’s north, marks a significant milestone in the provider’s expansion, said the organisation’s chief executive officer and founder Phil Usher.

“Odyssey Hope Island will be an extension on the success of our Robina community and upcoming Chevron community,” said Mr Usher. “We are incredibly excited to reach another pivotal moment in our journey.”

He added: “The successful settlement of the Hope Island site coupled with the progress of our Chevron community, displays our commitment to reshaping the aged care industry.”

The settlement of the Hope Island land comes off the back of the first slab of concrete being poured on the Chevron Island site (artist’s impressions below) which is expected for completion in 2025.

The Odyssey model is built around a “people first” ethos that offers a resort-style environment providing both retirement living and aged care. It’s a model, said Mr Usher, that has resonated with the wider community.

“The Hope Island development, like with Chevron, will be built to reflect the current living needs of seniors. Since Robina opened in mid-2020, we’re adapt with seniors’ living preferences and we always go out of our way to understand what our cohort need and want.”
