QUEENSLAND, AUSTRALIA: Odyssey’s luxury lifestyle care community on Chevron Island has officially appointed multi-award winning construction company Multiplex to build the highly anticipated project.

Scheduled for completion in 2025, the project, which is an approximated $127 million build, will create roughly 350 construction jobs over the duration of the project and more than 100 jobs once finished.

The site, located between Anembo and Mawarra Street on Chevron Island, will consist of 19 storeys across a single tower and include an abundance of amenity.

Odyssey CEO and Founder Phil Usher says they are very excited to partner with a builder who resonates with their values.

“Being a tier-one builder that’s in high demand, Multiplex is very particular when working with someone in the private sector, so this partnership really is a feather in our cap,” says Mr Usher.

“We have an astute awareness of the demand for quality aged care within the market and this is something Multiplex understands and identifies with.”

The project includes a total of 167 apartments which will be a mixture of one, two and three bedroom residences with additional penthouse options available for the discerning elderly as well as Memory Lane, a level dedicated to seniors with cognitive impairments.

Multiplex Regional Director Glenn Robinson says this is a very exciting project for the Gold Coast and they are thrilled to have been chosen to deliver it.

“This is a special project to be part of and we are delighted to bring to life Odyssey’s vision for a world-class community for seniors.

“Care and collaboration are core values at Multiplex, and we have worked closely with Odyssey to design an outcome that will not just bring people together, but enhance lifestyles.”

The innovative project is expected to up the ante with its plans for Chevron, as the market for luxury living in the lifestyle and aged care sector continues to soar.

Mr Usher says the Chevron Island development will be built to reflect the current living needs of seniors, based around feedback from their Robina community.

“Since Robina opened in mid 2020, we’ve learnt a lot about seniors’ living preferences and have found many residents are keen for a variety of options when it comes to space,” says Mr Usher.

“We’re delivering the ideal blend of retirement and aged care, with no waiting lists and you don’t need to move again as all the services are delivered to you as needed into your home from our dedicated on-site care team.

“This is a refreshing approach to what most people think aged care is, as you don’t need to be frail to live with us, and if you own your home now, affordability to live with us at Odyssey should be no problem.”

The Odyssey model is built around a resort style environment where couples stay together, pets are welcome, grandkids can have sleepovers and most importantly, the dignity, independence and wellbeing of residents are highly respected.
