Parque Vista

Nestled amongst the parks on Seville Road, Parque Vista 1 marks the first stage of Southern Cross Care’s multi-staged retirement living community in Brisbane’s Holland Park. This stage is co-located with the Archbishop Duhig residential aged care village.

The multi-storey Parque Vista 1 contains 43, well-proportioned apartments of various configurations. Detailed for ageing in place, the units open onto generous outdoor balconies overlooking lush surrounding parks and grounds.

Through careful and expert master planning, Council’s core urban design principles for the site are maintained, by including opportunities for residents to remain a part of the community and by integrating the internal community planning with the greater neighbourhood context.

This complements Southern Cross Care’s philosophy of empowering residents to remain independent longer and is upheld by the inclusion of high-quality community facilities that promote active living and social connections. Facilities include a chapel, café, multi-purpose rooms, a beautifully landscaped swimming pool and a village green area which provide opportunities for on-site recreational gatherings.

Parque Vista 1, designed in close consultation with the client, staff and the local community, sets the benchmark for mid-density suburban retirement living.
