A new five-storey residential complex, The Molloy, is helping to revolutionise Brisbane’s retirement landscape. Aveo Group’s new $27.5 million development is part of The Clayfield at Albion and features 66 one, two and three-bedroom apartments.
Named Molloy, in honour of Christian Brother and principal of St Columban’s College, which operated on the historic site during the late 1930’s, the new building complements The Clayfields’s existing residences, Eagle and Brooks, bringing together old world charm with contemporary, modern design.
The Molloy apartments range in price from $450,000 to $1.1 million and include generous indoor and outdoor living area and community spaces. Chief executive Geoff Grady said The Clayfield was a prime example of how Aveo continued to redefine retirement to meet the evolving needs of modern retirees, particularly those looking for inner-city locations close to established infrastructure and facilities.
The Clayfield exemplifies Aveo’s modern approach to retirement living with contemporary, spacious apartment designs suited to the growing needs of retirees without compromising on lifestyle,” he said.
The building has an indoor swimming pool, grand auditorium, gym, complimentary concierge, and a soon-to-be developed restaurant and cafe. Mr Grady said the launch of The Molloy followed the recent $1.5 million restoration of Highlands House, a culturally significant building in Brisbane’s rich history which will also serve as a community centre complete with dining room, sitting rooms and fully equipped kitchen for residents to enjoy.
Mr Grady said for added peace of mind, residents could take advantage of a full range of support services on-site including a 24 hour emerency call system, cleaning, laundry, parmacy delivery, physiotherapist and nursing care.
The Molloy apartments can be viewed at The Clayfield open day on July 16 from 10-2pm.
