Aged care hospital and apartments near completion in Queenstown
A major development being built near Queenstown will bring aged dementia and hospital care to the district.
Arvida, the current owner of the Queenstown Country Club, won’t reveal the cost of the development but it covers two large buildings on Howards Drive, just off Ladies Mile.
In a statement released to Crux, Arvida’s Queenstown Country Club Village manager Maurice David says the new buildings will include a range of new facilities.
“The centre will include 51 care suites that offer rest home and hospital-level care and support, 11 beds for residents living with dementia, and 29 apartments in Stage One.
“The Care Centre will also feature a café and commercial-grade kitchen. As the only care offering in Queenstown, we’re looking forward to adding care to our Queenstown Country Club community of villas. The centre will provide much-needed care and support to Queenstown when it’s scheduled to be completed in mid-2024.”
Arvida purchased the Queenstown Country Club in 2019 as part of a $180-million deal that also included two retirement properties in Tauranga.
