Qld seniors project bags UDIA award
Stockland B by Halcyon, a lifestyle community designed for over-50s located on the Sunshine Coast, has been awarded for Excellence in Seniors Living at the 2023 Urban Development Institute of Australia (UDIA) Queensland awards.
The project in Buderim spans 25 hectares and is surrounded by trees, with homeowners enjoying six hectares of private open space; a lifestyle, wellness, and recreational precinct, which includes a club and bar; and an outdoor resort-style pool and spa.
Stockland Halcyon Regional Project Director Chris Carley said, “Staying true to Buderim’s spirit, B by Halcyon has a community atmosphere, with carefully designed spaces that enhance the unique environment to create a rich and rewarding lifestyle for our homeowners.”
Each single-level home in the community comes standard with solar power and the community also has Tesla Powerwall batteries to power common facilities, a Tesla shared vehicle and electric vehicle charging stations.
Carley said Stockland Halcyon communities help to change the way older Australians embrace life, and there are no deferred management payments or exit fees payable when one leaves the community.
“B by Halcyon had strong market response when it launched in February 2020 and is now 90% sold with just 31 homes remaining,” Carley added.
The annual UDIA Queensland Awards for Excellence honour the highest achievers across all sectors of the development industry with winners eligible to contest the national awards.
Entrants in the Seniors Living category were judged on a number of factors including environmental consideration, design innovation, sales results and commitment to the broader community, as well as meeting the specific needs of retirement-age homeowners.
