November Building Update

It’s really exciting seeing so many stages come to conclusion. The last touches on the Villas are stunning, the Rakino Boutique Apartments are 90 per cent there and preparation for the building footprints on the next stage of apartments along Symes drive is about to commence.

The scaffolding on the Rakino apartment building has been removed, revealing its wonderful façade. This ‘unveiling’ means these beauties are almost ready for some new occupants. Interiors are 90 per cent complete with just the final painting and carpeting to go. The Garden Pavilion is nearly there too – we can’t wait to celebrate its opening at the end of November along with our APO concert on the 28th.

It’s been great to observe all the hard work on the landscaping around the villas finally come to an end; it really has created a very welcoming environment. The seating and lighting around the petanque area is now complete, so those competitive games between neighbours can begin! Work is progressing well on the hill walk linking the village to the top of Taikura Ave.
