With the rise of new residential developments around the country offering exclusive resident-only amenities as standard, it’s obvious buyers and renters are seeking such services as “must-haves” in their homes.

They seek the convenience of having their gym just an elevator ride away or a common dining area to host special events that their residences can’t contain. All in all, they seek wellness. And who can blame them? Particularly in the wake of the pandemic that’s taught us all the importance of wellbeing and community.

Gold Coast-based developer CS Collective agrees with this sentiment, as its brand new Burleigh Heads townhouse project, CALA, showcases luxury wellness with private rooftop oases.

“People are putting wellness at the forefront of everyday life now,” said Luke Carter, Director of CS Collective.

“It is important for us to incorporate these things into our projects, especially ones of this calibre.

“It also benefits our residents in the long term and allows them to enjoy these wellness facilities from the comfort of their own homes.”

Offering just three four-story townhomes, each of CALA’s three residences boasts its own coastal-inspired amenities. Accessible via a private lift, ascend to level 3 and residents find their exclusive rooftop haven overlooking Burleigh Heads and onto the glittering Pacific Ocean.

“We wanted to ensure our buyers are given every opportunity to immerse themselves in the luxuries of having rooftop saunas, pools, BBQ and dining areas, and rooftop living facilities,” Carter explained.

“We felt that these certain amenities can be incorporated into everyday life routines and benefit our residents.”

Sydney-based property developer Deicorp also believes in the importance of wellness. Robert Furolo, Executive Manager – Corporate Communications of Deicorp, said, “Our ambition is to create strong communities and deliver a true village feel for purchasers and residents of our projects.

“It’s why we’re focused on great open spaces, exceptional convenience, and quality of life.”

Furolo’s sentiment is reflected in the developer’s new apartment development in Castle Hill, Hills Showground Village. Located on the doorstep of the Hills Showground Metro station, the project’s location itself gives residents access to a wealth of amenities. Yet, Deicorp takes the wellness element a step further, with over 9,500 sqm of retail area and 1,400 sqm of publicly accessible plaza to be part of the precinct.

“With a great range of retail conveniences within our Hills Showground Village, we felt that including wellness and health facilities made great sense,” explained Furolo.

Hills Showground Village will be home to gyms and fitness centres, a health precinct, and a lush podium garden with BBQ dining facilities and a playground exclusive to residents.

“There is a growing awareness of the need to remain active at whatever stage of life you are,” Furolo continued.

“For children and young people through to active seniors and retired people, staying healthy enhances your enjoyment of life.

“These facilities will provide options for everyone to enjoy a healthy and active lifestyle.”

When asked whether they envisage the wellness trend to continue, Furolo replied, “A focus on overall health and wellbeing is growing in importance, and we see this being a factor in decisions people make when buying their home.

“People are looking for convenience, lifestyle, and wellbeing, and we see this continuing well into the future.”

Carter agreed.

“Yes, wellness is such a big part of life on the Gold Coast.

“It will only continue to grow as people keep discovering the benefits and just how good it makes them feel,” he said.
