Seniors’ wellbeing at the heart of new housing development being considered in Cairns

The Queensland Government’s $2 billion Housing Investment Fund is considering Community Housing Limited and Tetris Capital’s proposal to deliver a master planned community that will house seniors and people living with disability in Cairns.

Seniors who are seeking to downsize would be able to enjoy supported community living, while freeing up under-occupied social homes for larger households, under a proposal for a new development in Cairns.

The architecturally designed campus includes up to 490 new social, affordable and specialist disability homes that are modern, low maintenance and energy efficient among landscaped gardens and playgrounds.

The proposed development will consist of one and two-bedroom units, located close to medical facilities, community services and shopping.

Community Housing Qld Limited, currently managing almost 1,300 properties across Queensland, specialises in supporting independent active lifestyles where people can age in place with freedom, privacy, dignity and security.

Quotes attributable to Tetris Capital's Principal Ryan Slocombe:

We are delighted that this transformational project will make such a difference to so many people’s lives and look forward to working with the broader Cairns community to bring it to life,” he said.
