Almost an entire city block on Chevron Island will soon be cleared to make way for a major residential aged care care tower.
Leading healthcare provider Infinite Care has submitted plans to Gold Coast Council to build the giant seven-storey complex which will have three towers rising from a single podium.
The new development, planned for a 3666 sqm triangular site fronting Stanhill Drive and Anembo Street, will have 142 one-bedroom units.
“The development will cater specifically to the needs of older residents in need of high care support and accommodation,” a planning report on the project states.
“The proposal provides an innovative, contemporary and functional aged care facility that will provide accommodation, care and support catering specifically to the needs of older residents seeking a high-level of care within a central and accessible location of the city.”
Its features will include a hair salon, theatre, wellness centre, function rooms, fine dining options, rooftop garden and multiple terraces.
The project will require the demolition of seven existing residential houses.
Infinite Care, which first entered aged care in 2014, at present has an aged care portfolio of five refurbished aged care facilities in South Australia and five new ‘state-of-the-art’ facilities in Queensland, with more planned.
