The proposed development is of 21 storeys, with a total of 131 apartments. Shops and commercial space occupy the ground floor and the two storeys above.
This DA relates to a site on the corner of Oxford Street by the roundabout, in Epping. This has been retirement units run by the Uniting Church (known as Coombah) for many years and it is now proposed to demolish the existing buildings and build a 19 storey mixed used development. You can read the details here.
The proposed development is for 187 basement parking spaces, 83 bed aged care residence, and then floors of retirement living units (152 units). So, like the proposal for the OLHC site, this is essentially a residential development as anyone over 55 could live in the units.
