Arvida retirement village part of planned Nelson housing explosion

The Tasman District Council approved 8 special housing areas on Thursday, including a 40ha subdivision in Richmond where Arvida Group Ltd intends to build an 8ha retirement village.

On the Arvida site: Development general manager Jonathan Ash & chief executive Bill McDonald.

The 8 special housing areas containing at least 1281 sections are the first the Tasman council has approved under the 2013 housing accord legislation.

Arvida chief executive Bill McDonald said the NZX-listed company expected to start building in 2018, and the $130 million development would be built on Arvida’s commitment to “broader community engagement, helping retirees to live a full & satisfying life post-retirement.

“We know that what was acceptable for retirement living in the past is not what people are looking for today & into the future. Kiwis are looking for retirement living to be an extension of their lifestyle, not a restriction.

“Our culture is all about improving the lives & wellbeing of every resident who lives in an Arvida retirement village. Life shouldn’t stop when you retire – it should get even better. This philosophy is the future of retirement living.”

Mr McDonald said the village, Arvida’s third in Nelson, followed high demand for retirement living options in the region: “Nelson Bays has a higher percentage of its population in the over-65 age bracket than the national average, so demand is high for retirement living options.

“The proposed new village is closer to the Richmond shopping area than most of the other villages, ensuring residents of the village are integrated & connected to the Richmond community. It will offer 150 villas, apartments & care suites. It will have outwardly facing community facilities, as well as a community-oriented village centre & homestead.

“This will be a retirement village unlike any other in the region. We are basing it on the quality of our architecturally acclaimed village in Cambridge with high quality design, community facilities & homes.”

The retirement village will form part of a wider development of up to 700 house & land packages, The Meadows, to be developed by locals Andrew Spittal, Simon Collett, Gary Donaldson & Graham Vercoe through Home Living Solutions Ltd.

Mr Spittal, who’s project manager, said: “We are delighted to have Arvida as a key partner in the development. We have a very similar vision of wanting to create a place where there is a real sense of community, one that embraces intergenerational living and is designed & built for the future.”
