Major Milestone for St Luke's Green

We celebrated a MAJOR milestone at St Luke’s this past Saturday, when we opened our Display Apartment and hosted our residents and their family and friends. Brisbane put on a magical day – clear blue sky, bright, warm sun (so much so that people were seeking out the shade to sit under) and a light breeze. Somewhere between 60-70 people came through the apartment and many stayed for hours – enjoying catching up with family and friends and meeting new friends and neighbours and just sitting enjoying the wonderful courtyard space, the sausage sizzle and amazing banana bread. Feedback from all who came was very positive.

 

The pictures are from the initial setting up to the final completion.

The St Luke's Green display apartment is all set to open early July!

Once the Display Apartment opens we know the remaining apartments will quickly be reserved.

With the final apartments now selling and the display apartment opening very soon, now is the best time for you to reserve your apartment.

Building 1 now has its roof.

Another milestone has been reached at St Luke's Green with the roof now on Building 1.  By the end of June, we expect that the other 3 buildings will also have their roof.  Once each building has its roof, the completion of the village will be on the horizon, with the walls, windows and internal fit out happening rapidly.

St Luke's Green at the movies

Just before Christmas we kicked off some cinema advertising. St Luke’s Green is featured in a 30 second commercial that is shown before every movie screened at the Cineplex Cinemas in Balmoral (Bulimba) and Hawthorne. Please let us know if you have been to the movies and have seen our ad. We’d love to hear what you think about it!

Great progress is being made on all buildings

The recent good weather has meant that progress on all buildings at St Luke's Green has sped ahead.  The ground floor slab for the nursing home and Building 1 of the Retirment Village has been poured and the basement slab has been poured for Building 2.  The pics show the formwork in place for the next steps in construction for each building.  Soon after the Christmas/New Year break, we should see the buildings start to take their final form.  Please keep coming back to follow the buidling of this 'little village in a big city'.

Another milestone in construction

St Luke's Green reached another milestone over the weekend with the arrival, and positioning onsite, of the overhead crane.  Under a bleak and stormy sky on Saturday, the builders worked to position and anchor the crane at the front of the church, from where it will be used to build the vertical walls of the village's 4 buildings.  Today, under an early morning blue sky, the crane was calibrated and set up so that construction can continue safely and efficently.

The Village Green foundations poured today.

Today was another milestone for St Luke's Green with the first 'suspended' pour of concrete.  This area is where the Village Green will be and the pictures show the creation of the Village Green structural slab at ground level.
