Everil Orr Retirement Village

We live as stewards of life and work in connected ways

We believe in the inherent goodness of human kind

Airedale Property Trust is currently undertaking a full redevelopment of the existing Everil Orr Retirement Village in Mt Albert.

Everil Orr Village has been a prominent landmark in Mt Albert for many years, providing care and accommodation to the elderly. It was agreed that the buildings in their current form no longer provided the best example of a modern aged care facility and were reaching the end of their economic life.

In conjunction with Oceania Group Ltd, APT had a wish to continue the current land use and to continue to provide a service to the Mt Albert community through the provision of aged care. In order to do so, and to ensure the ongoing viability of the village, it was necessary for the site to be redeveloped to meet the needs of the market now and into the future.

It is the wish of APT to ensure that, through excellence in building design, the redeveloped site will enhance and enrich the neighbourhood and community.

The site will be redeveloped as follows: 
• A new care facility offering accommodation for up to 90 patients
• A new retirement village offering 120 state-of-the-art Independent Living Units (ILUs) under a Licence to Occupy arrangement
• Common amenities and service facilities to support the care facility and apartments
• Extensive and comprehensive landscaping which enhances the overall development
• Roading and car parking to support the proposed development

Oceania Group Limited will continue to be the operator of the care facility and of the retirement village.

Key elements of the design process have been:
• A focus on retention and enhancement of existing trees and landscaping
• A focus on the design of sustainable and energy-efficient buildings
• Minimising the impact of the buildings along street frontages and boundaries
• A focus on creating an integrated rather than an isolated community.

APT has engaged a range of high quality consultancy partners to bring this project from vision to reality, utilising expertise in various fields including architectural, legal, project management and financial modelling.
