The innovative Lamington Markets project is set to be one of the first truly integrated, future-thinking developments built to accommodate an increasing ageing population in Queensland.
The development began inception as a typical transit-oriented mixed-use development, incorporating market retail, SoHo housing, cinemas, commercial spaces, and residential apartment mix. The development caught the attention of retirement living operators, and transformed to address a gap in accommodation options for seniors in the local region.
The development overlays public amenity and commercial space with resort-type amenity more conducive to retirement living addresses. The apartments are sized and planned to ‘universal design’ requirements, ensuring circulation spaces and accessibility for mobility challenged people; they can also be easily retrofitted with home support fixtures to allow ageing-in-place.
