51 Lynden Apartments represent an example of how the independent living retirement market is no longer following the standard retirement village model that had been adopted for the last thirty years, which comprised the single storey villa unit development with community centre. This development is a boutique apartment development with no communal facilities, but is located adjacent to an aged care facility. The aged care facility is also being redeveloped and will contain facilities that residents in the apartments can also avail themselves of - eg: restaurant meals, café, bar, etc.
The smaller scale of the development results in easy integration with the surrounding residential environment (the aged care facility is at the rear of the development)
The development has had ready market acceptance with a high number of presales before construction has been completed.
