Logan over 50s community opens newest clubhouse
With the official opening of Ingenia Lifestyle Bethania’s second community clubhouse last Friday 7 May − designed to be another social hub of the community – residents are looking forward to living their best retirement years.
Ingenia Communities Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Simon Owen, staff and residents were joined by Councillor Tony Hall of Logan City Council to officially open the $3 million clubhouse, eight months after construction started.
Ingenia Communities CEO Simon Owen said he was excited to open the newest clubhouse which has been specifically designed to complement the existing amenities as the Bethania community grows.
“The clubhouse is an integral part of the communities we build and set a benchmark for retirement living – that’s why I’m so pleased that it’s a key reason our residents love living at Ingenia Lifestyle communities,” Mr Owen said.
“Residents had a first look at the clubhouse today and it’s wonderful to hear how excited they all are to start spending time with one another in the new social space.
“While there is already a clubhouse here at Bethania, the new space offers an expanded range of facilities to help build on the strong sense of community that already exists here,” Mr Owen said.
The clubhouse offers downsizers a buzzing space that includes a swimming pool, spa, alfresco barbeque area, lawn bowling green, hair salon, community hall, kitchen, bar, library, and media room.
Councillor Tony Hall said local amenities that could drive community connection in the City of Logan were important in creating a strong sense of belonging and to attract new people to the area as the city grows.
“It is now more important than ever that people have opportunities to come together, socialise and find themselves surrounded by good neighbours and a community that they feel connected to,” Cr Hall said.
“The concept of a ‘communal hub’ is a fantastic way to build authentic engagement among people and the clubhouse provides an opportunity to cater to the interests and needs of the many different residents who live here.”
