Greenwich, NSW, Australia

boutique vertical community

The challenge for Marchese Partners | Life3A was to create a true vertical community, which fosters a sense of belonging and purpose for residents in an urban setting together with lifestyle and wellness facilities. 

Utilising an evidence-based approach to design, we incorporated wellbeing strategies into place making and a connection to nature in the public-private interfaces.

This has created a space where the wellbeing of the residents is enhanced through contact with nature and connection to the broader community. 

The development has become a landmark project in Australia at the forefront of later living vertical communities.

With buyers averaging a median age of 75, Akoya is attracting older downsizers who would have historically looked towards the higher-end retirement village market.

Replicating the sales records of other CAPs projects, Akoya Greenwich is 70% sold on firm deposits six months before completion.

Its three-bedroom apartments and penthouses are priced from $3.45 million and $5.495 million. Read the DCM article ‘The rise of Community Apartment Projects (CAPs) like Akoya Greenwich is teaching village operators a lesson.‘ 07/2023
