Woodlea reveals aged care and retirement precinct
Staff reporterDecember 7, 2020

Woodlea has revealed plans for an innovative aged care and retirement precinct within its growing estate.

Located in Melbourne’s western growth corridor and currently home to 7,000 residents, Woodlea sought to redefine residential living from the outset by creating and raising the bar for a new suburb where families can live a better life. 

The area earmarked for the aged care and retirement precinct is co-located within the new $45 million Woodlea Town Centre development.

It has the potential for over 100 Independent Living Units, Retirement Living Apartments and an Aged Care Facility.

Victoria Investments & Properties (VIP) and ASX listed Mirvac, in collaboration with Knight Frank, is seeking an independent project partner to bring this opportunity to life.

Woodlea Project Director Matthew Dean said this offering would effectively close the loop on ensuring every age and demographic is catered for within the Woodlea community.

“There are aged care and retirement units within the surrounding area but there is nothing of this size or calibre that integrates different living options within the same precinct.

“Woodlea is unlike any other master-planned community due to its sheer size and offering and as it continues to flourish and more amenities are delivered, we are continually looking for ways to innovate to ensure it is responding to the needs of its residents and the surrounding communities,” he said.

Spanning 711 hectares, Woodlea is fast becoming a major asset for the west, comprising prestigious schools, destination style playgrounds, parks and sporting facilities and will be home to a large-scale Town Centre with a 3500sqm Coles.

Upon completion, the master-planned estate is forecast to be home to over 20,000 residents.

It will see over 30 per cent of the estate dedicated to open space - including native woodlands and wetlands and pocket parks.

In addition, two childcare centres, two public schools and Bacchus Marsh Grammar Primary School, as well as an abundance of sport and recreation facilities will be available.
