Retirement village developer Summerset Group Holdings Ltd said today it had bought a 6ha site, price undisclosed, in the Kenepuru Landing development at Porirua for its 5th village in the Wellington region.
Kenepuru Landing is a joint residential housing project between developer Carrus Corp Ltd & local iwi Ngati Toa.
Summerset chief executive Julian Cook said the proposed village on Bluff Rd would have over 290 homes, including 2- & 3-bedroom villas & apartments, one-bedroom serviced apartments and resthome & hospital care. The village would also include Summerset’s memory care centre concept, offering 20 one-bedroom apartments in a safe environment for people with dementia.
The company expects to build 450 retirement units nationally this year.
