This Australian Property Council Award for Excellence in Retirement Living has recognised Warrigal for it’s innovation in building Warrigal Shell Cove and the way services are delivered to residents.
The National Retirement Living Award for Innovation is presented to village operators and/or service providers who have demonstrate how they have implemented innovative practices across area of their business for the benefit of retirement village customers.
The Warrigal Shell Cove development saw ADM Architects and Jason Teece involved in the site master planning and detailed design of the village to meet a range of outcomes. Warrigal also worked in partnership with Shellharbour City Council to make Shell Cove an age-friendly precinct using the World Health Organisation’s criteria. Strategic Innovation and Development executive Leanne Taylor said when they went to market all 33 villas in the village were snapped up in the first few days of release.
There are presently more than 400 people on the wait list for the villas.
“We believe this is the kind of residential living our customers are now looking for and will increasingly be the model they want to see,” she said.
