MEDIA RELEASE

Ryman Healthcare is planning to build a new Takapuna retirement village with stunning views of Lake Pupuke and Auckland.

The almost 7,000 sq m site is in the heart of Takapuna, next to Killarney Park, close to shops and local amenities. The purchase is subject to Overseas Investment Office approval.

The former fire service site already has a resource consent for a five-storey aged care village, and Ryman intends to work with the existing plans to build a village with approximately 67 independent apartments, 31 serviced apartments and 45 aged care beds.

The $120 million village will include resthome, hospital and dementia level care and provide sustainable long-term jobs for a team of healthcare workers.

Jeremy Moore, Chief Development Officer, said the site was in one of New Zealand’s premium locations and was perfect for a boutique village.

“Our residents are in for a treat. There are stunning views in all directions and it’s close to everything you could need in Takapuna. We think it is a stunner, and we can’t wait to get going and build.’’

All Ryman villages are named after significant local people. Ryman’s other villages in Auckland include Edmund Hillary in Remuera, Grace Joel in St Heliers, Bert Sutcliffe in Birkenhead, Murray Halberg in Lynfield and William Sanders in Devonport.

“We’d like to hear from anyone with naming suggestions – we’re looking for a name that everyone in Takapuna can be proud of.’’

The village will include a movie theatre, hair and beauty salons, a bar and café.
