Phil Usher’s Odyssey Lifestyle Care Communities project in Robina has announced its second stage of development, which will see residents traversing skybridges across six new levels.
The second stage will include 48 new apartments and has been developed in consultation with residents and will also feature an entire level designed specifically for seniors with memory issues.
CEO and founder, Phil Usher, says Odyssey’s resident consultation and continual feedback process has led to the development of a new stage that the company is truly proud of.
“We really listen to what our residents are asking for and adapt to their needs, rather than following a model of ‘here’s what you get,” says Mr Usher.
“Apartments in the new stage will include a powder room as well as a deluxe bathroom – a design feature we have developed directly in response to feedback from our residents.”
Hutchinson Builders, who built stage one of Odyssey, will also construct the second stage, which will include architecturally appointed skybridges on every level to connect the new tower to one of the existing towers.
Mr Usher says there will be communal areas on each skybridge in addition to an outdoor setting and garden space.
“The skybridges will be akin to having a park at the end of the street where everyone can come together socially,” says Mr Usher.
“The addition of stage two will seek to bring our residents together in an even more meaningful way and further foster the Odyssey community.”
Construction of stage two is expected to take 16 months, with preliminary works already underway.
Odyssey includes a full-service hospitality offering, laundry service, breakfast, high-tea, three-course lunch and dinner, tea, coffee and drinks, nursing and personal care services.
The lifestyle care community sets a new benchmark for the sector with an extensive offering of five-star accommodation, care services and amenities for residents.
