Project: MYVISTA Aged Care Facility
Pindan Start's on $60m Facility
Pindan has started construction work on MYVISTA Aged Care's groundbreaking $60million Mirrabooka facility, expected to open in 2020.
MYVISTA chairman Tony Vallelonga said the not-for-profit had an opportunity to integrate its aged-care and retirement living into an established local community so that residents weren't sequestered or isolated as they aged. The development, which is retirement living and aged-care on the same site, was a first for the area.
The move also capitalises on a multimillion-dollar City of tilling overhaul of Mirrabooka bus station.
The City of Stirling appointed Colliers International to sell several high-profile strategic lots, designated for mixed-use, multilevel development in the Mirrabooka town centre. MYVISTA's project, designed by architects Silver Thomas Hanley, includes a 112-bed aged care facility with other services including corporate offices, a therapy pool, 45 retirement-living apartments, a cafe, a medical practice, a pharmacy, space for a Physio and a gym.
"The project is (designed to) connect people within their local community, not only through its location, but also with modern and up-to-date facilities," Mr Valleglonga said.
