Victorian aged care provider Benetas has unveiled plans for a retirement village in Mooroolbark, Melbourne.

The retirement village will include 131 modern open plan units with 6+ star energy rating.

The village will be surrounded by native flora and has access to bushland walking trails.

Benetas general manager of strategy, infrastructure and housing Bruce Webb said the project is special for the organisation.

“We’ve been in the community for over 60 years delivering aged care services, and we wanted to capture the suburb’s leafy surrounds and its community spirit,” he said. 

“The units have been designed to be easily maintained and their open plan living aspect is perfect for hosting lunches that overlook the native landscapes. There are also resident veggie gardens, outdoor dining and exercise equipment to further outdoor living.”

Mr Webb said Benetas was investing in a range of on-site lifestyle facilities to support the community and integrate the retirement village to the suburb’s existing amenities.

“Like all of our developments, we will be focusing on building a strong sense of community in the village, while also taking extra effort to integrate with the local clubs, health centres and businesses wherever we can,” Mr Webb said. 

“It’s wonderful to support people in Mooroolbark and the surrounding suburbs to access all the services that they may need in their later years and be fully equipped to age in place regardless of what their future needs involve.”

Construction will commence this summer.
