It’s been just five months since construction started on Vitality Village – an Australian-first health and wellness hub at Birtinya – and already almost two thirds of the available tenancy areas are spoken for.
We have partnered with leading Sunshine Coast-based community service provider Be to create a world class facility that offer a wide variety of well-being services in one convenient location, including everything from aged care and mental health resources, research and technology, employment, disability and allied health services.
Be CEO Feda Adra said she was delighted to see the development coming out of the ground and the very positive response from the market.
“We have a diverse group of tenants from aged and disability providers, mental health, allied health services to tech companies and entrepreneurs and innovators,” Feda said.
“We have approximately 65 per cent of the complex under offer at the moment, which is very exciting.”
“Our vision is to co-locate individuals, organisations and networks in supportive online and face-to-face settings to respond creatively and effectively to challenging economic and social conditions, and to achieve tangible outcomes through enhanced health and wellbeing, new investment, business growth, start-ups, and local jobs.
Construction company McNab is currently about a third of the way through construction of Vitality Village which is right on schedule, despite significant inclement weather over the past few months.
Major milestones achieved last month were the erection of the tilt panel external walls (some of which were 10 metres high and weigh in at 33 tonne!) and the erection of the tower crane. We now look forward to the completion of the Level 3 transfer slab as our next major milestone and we anticipate topping out in November.
Once again, a project like this is good news for the local construction industry with Vitality Village averaging around 35-40 workers on site and peaking at about 65.
