HammondGrove Miranda wins lifestyle living for over 55s award

HammondCare's HammondGrove independent living estate in Miranda has won the Master Builders Association (MBA) NSW Housing Excellence award for Lifestyle Living for Over 55's for 2016.

The MBA Housing Awards were presented at a gala dinner on August 28 and showcase the best in residential building - rewarding quality, workmanship and innovation.

General Manager Property and Capital Works, Michael Cooney, congratulated all involved in the HammondGrove project including architects Bickerton Masters, builders Taylor Constructions and the HammondCare team including Construction Manager David Massad, Village Manager Kim Townsend and Sales Manager Isabel Skelton.

Outstanding lifestyle choice

"Our team worked tirelessly during construction and commissioning to deliver an outstanding lifestyle choice for over 55s, with this outcome confirmed by the well-deserved award," Mr Cooney said.

"Apart from high quality of design, construction and amenity throughout, residents are telling us that the features they love about HammondGrove Miranda include the skylounge, pool, gym, hairdresser, cafe, library, chapel and resident lounge.

"Our approach is to encourage community involvement for residents and we actively seek to connect with the communities in which we serve. HammondGrove Miranda has been designed to be part of both the Miranda and broader Shire community and our publicly accessible Hive Café is one very successful way this is occurring."

Further stages coming

HammondGrove Miranda consists of stage one which was opened and occupied last year and features 38 apartments over four stories with a village Centre, rooftop terrace and village green. Next came 10 villas completed in August with resident already moving into nine, and stage two which includes 38 apartments and four penthouses due for handover in December.

Mr Cooney said that due to the success of HammondGrove and demand for retirement living in the area, HammondCare had started planning for a third stage on the north of the site located off Bellingara Road. A development application is expected to be lodged with Sutherland Shire Council before the end of the year.
