Construction underway on $25 million multi-level residential care home

A boldly designed, multi-level aged care home for frail aged residents will complete HammondCare’s 10-year masterplan for its site at Bellingara Street, Miranda.

The $25-million project, known during construction as Miranda 3C, will offer 60 places to address the demand for residential aged care from HammondGrove’s independent living residents as well as more broadly across the Sutherland Shire.

The innovative design by architect Peter Ireland from Allen Jack+Cottier Architects has a sawtooth façade with two of the three levels of accommodation offering generous sweeping balcony spaces, linking living areas to the end sitting rooms. The multi-storey configurations take advantage of the site’s natural slope to provide direct access to these quality outdoor spaces that residents on all levels can access.

The 60 places will be provided in six apartments – two per floor – of 10 residents to maximise care and offer a homelike atmosphere. Each apartment has a front door and lift front porch.

The main entry and community facilities are located on the ground floor with pedestrian access along the internal road from both Bellingara Road and Kiama Street. Car parking for visitors and staff will also be available in the basement off Kiama Street.Miranda 3C site, HammondCare, site map

With the completion of Miranda 3C, HammondCare will offer a full suite of quality aged care services on the site at Kiama and Bellingara Roads, including award-winning independent living, sought-after 92-place dementia-specific residential care, and the Sinclair day respite cottage.

Sutherland Shire Council approved the Development Application for the project in May 2020. Total Construction has been awarded the main works contract and moved onsite in October 2020, following completion of early works. Construction should be completed in early 2022.

Miranda 3C is the last of six stages of a masterplan for the site, which began with the opening of a dementia-specific residential aged care home in December 2012.
