ECH Encore Apartments Coming to Life

The final stages of Encore Apartments are coming to life after four years in the making.

The site at Modbury is progressing well, with construction and landscaping, internal fit-outs to both buildings, commissioning of lifts and the commencement of the community café.

Manager of Community and Operational Development Luke Say said the build is on track to be completed in October 2021.

“It is very exciting to be part of the project as we near completion and it is also very rewarding to see the project come to life through the build,” Luke said.

“The project team has worked seamlessly throughout each phase and also navigated the challenges presented during 2020.

“Most encouragingly has been the commitment by all to develop an innovative Retirement Living Community that embraces our vision and remains true to the original design intent.”

Future Encore Apartment residents were given the opportunity in March 2021 to mingle and meet their prospective neighbours at a welcome morning tea.

At the event, they also received a special presentation on the project vision, why neighbourliness is important and an update on the building progress and community development.

Future resident Patrick said he is eager to move into Modbury once again, as he valued the convenience of amenities when he previously lived in the area.

“Encore Apartments are very close to the O’Bahn, shops and eateries, which is extremely handy,” he said. Other future residents Marilyn and John, are looking forward to getting involved in the intergenerational activities at the SA Montessori Early Learning Centre.

“It will be great to live in a place with such a fantastic shared community space and I will enjoy having a café so close by.”

Luke said the intergenerational programs with SA Montessori continue to flourish with ECH staff and volunteers currently participating in the program at SA Montessori’s Unley location.
