The highly anticipated exclusive launch of Kokoda Residences took place at the Magpies’ Club at Waitara on 5 March, with Vasey Communities’ directors and invited guests.

Kokoda Residences is the showpiece of Vasey Communities retirement village portfolio. A particularly proud achievement, given the Vasey organisation was formed after World War II by Jessie, the widow of Major General George Vasey, who commanded the Australian defence of the Kokoda trail. The date of the launch marked the 75th anniversary of Major General Vasey’s death.

Vasey's vision of creating a community that holds true to the Vasey values of Community, Quality, Respect and Well-being, sprang to life with Kokoda’s launch event.

The excitement across the audience and guests was immediate with the unveiling of striking architectural images, representing the 117 retirement apartments. Kokoda’s one, two and three-bedroom residences were showcased, as well as a stunning, 3-bedroom penthouse level apartment, these were available in a beautifully presented take home pack.

The images also revealed Kokoda's remarkable choice of spaces, places and social aspects with the community areas, that will include central gardens, bar, lounge, gym and library facilities and even a workshop for pottering.

Graham Hooper, CEO of Vasey Communities, said "Vasey Communities has a proud history of providing retirement living communities across Sydney and Kokoda Residences will mark the cornerstone in Vasey's retirement portfolio offering over 55s a new inspired lifestyle.

"This is a very exciting time in Vasey Communities' history and we are looking forward to having the residents of Kokoda join us on the journey ahead.''

The invited guests received a clear sense of the project’s approach to thoughtful, vertical senior living, creating a like-minded and friendly community, wherever you are in Kokoda.

Kokoda Residences commences construction in April and is due for completion late 2021.
