ST PATRICKS GREEN
Located on the edge of the town centre and within part of Kogarah’s health and medical precinct, the opportunity exists to establish a state of the art care village that complements the surrounding community and residential uses. The village will have direct access to all of the transport, shopping and specialist services offered in Kogarah as well the potential to partner with the Hospitals for elderly transitional care.
A masterplan for the St Patrick’s campus is now being prepared with Greengate to be the village operator.
The village will bring together residential aged care and retirement living around a central village green. The village green will form part of a ground plane alive with community spaces like lounge, library dining, recreation and reception areas flowing through from the Chapel Street health precinct.
The masterplan concept establishes three separate buildings surrounding a central north facing village green. The main building presents to Chapel Street as part of four level podium and is designed to incorporate the village entry and existing trees.
The main building comprises all of the community spaces as well as the residential aged care, assisted and independent living units. The building is part nine, part 12 storey ‘s modulated into a series of finer elements.
Fronting the highway is a part four and part five storey independent living building with apartments predominantly facing the courtyard but with some smaller more affordable accommodation adjacent to the highway. To the southern boundary is a second building containing only ILU’s. It is a part 4 part 5 storey building setback from the southern boundary by some 6m.
