Aged care operator Ozcare has proposed a 23 storey retirement community located at 43 Evelyn Street, a large island site in Newstead.

The proposed development will be carried out over two stages and involves the construction of a mixed-use building, comprising of a retirement facility, residential care facility, food and drink outlet, shop and an office which will provide a new home for Ozcare’s administrative activities.

Designed by Conrad Gargett, the proposal also includes a new park in the form of a privately owned public space.

According to the development application, the project aims to provide a modern Residential Aged care and retirement lifestyle project within the urban environment.

The project will provide an opportunity for residents to age in place, as well as a commercial office space. The diversity of the development will contribute to an enhanced
community engagement within Newstead.
