Uniting Care Lodge Plans for $100 Million Aged Care Tower


Not-for-profit community services provider Uniting has lodged plans with the City of Parramatta for a 19-storey mixed-use facility in Epping.

Uniting is a provider of seniors’ housing and aged care and currently operates more than 100 sites throughout New South Wales and the ACT.

The $100 million proposal, designed by Turner Studio, outlays a new 83-bed residential care facility as well as 152 independent seniors living units.

The residential aged care facility will be located over three levels with each level separated into two households with shared facilities for staff.

The facility will offer both standard aged care and specialised dementia care.

The site, located at 43 Oxford Street, is currently occupied by Uniting's Coombah Retirement village, which consists of three 2-storey buildings, all of which are to be demolished.

The aged care provider will also create ancillary offices and ground floor retail as well as the provision of 178 basement car parks across three levels.

The proposed tower is in close proximity to Epping railway station and within Epping’s Town Centre Redevelopment precinct.

The application is to be determined by the Sydney Central City Planning Panel.

Uniting are currently adding 78 independent living apartments to its retirement village Lakeview Shellharbour at Blackbutt.

Construction on its Shellharbour extension is expected to be completed in early 2019.
