New retirement properties coming soon to Brabazon

YTL Developments has submitted a planning application to build 239 one and two-bedroom properties at Brabazon designed for later living.

Residents will be able to relax in the landscaped grounds, take a walk around a meadow designed to encourage wildlife, or enjoy the sunshine from the peaceful roof garden. Internally, the carefully considered communal spaces will include a comfortable lounge in which to play games or to gather with friends, a restaurant and bar to act as a social hub, as well as a library and wellbeing suite with spa facilities and activity rooms.

The design is inspired by the style of historic mansion houses that encourage communities to grow around shared facilities. The brick buildings are fully-accessible, feature a recessed colonnade to the central courtyard, and reflect a continuation of the design style that has proved so popular to date at The Hangar District – the first residential phase at Brabazon. The properties continue to set the standard on sustainability, with no fossil fuel-based heating, while generous balconies and picture windows maximise natural light.

Sebastian Loyn, planning and development director, YTL Developments, said: “The changing needs of our ageing society mean that there is increasing demand for specialist housing and care. These homes are designed to enable residents to be more active, more social and more independent in their retirement years. These new properties are part of our commitment to making Brabazon a diverse and inclusive community where young and old alike will love to live.“
