A ground-breaking move for Panthers
20 April 2017
It’s official. The Royce, Panthers new retirement village for over 55s, is officially under way.
It took some fancy chrome spades, an indigenous smoking ceremony, some speeches by local dignitaries and a couple of Panthers legends to get the job done.
Now construction can begin.
The Ground Breaking Ceremony was held on site on Tuesday 16 May 2017. This new landmark will include a luxurious offering – Stage 1 of The Royce will comprise of:
• 52 Independent Living Apartments
• 128 Residential Aged Care Rooms including a dementia care wing and
• 5 Star community spaces including beautifully landscaped gardens, roof terraces, Resident’s Lounge and extensive front of house services.
Plus, all the exceptional facilities Panthers Penrith has on offer.
The Hon. Stuart Ayres MP, Member for Penrith noted in his opening speech that The Royce@ Panthers Penrith was an example of Penrith’s major infrastructure development.
“Very few Clubs have moved to develop a retirement village adjacent to their club facilities, economising on the community infrastructure required as well as servicing their older members.”
The Royce Retirement Living Development is a major part of the evolution of Panthers Penrith, understanding and meeting the expectations of their older Panthers Members and those within the community, to be a part of the exceptional facilities Panthers Penrith has on offer.
The official Brand Ambassador, NRL Living Legend, Mr Royce Simmons, also gave a speech at the Ground Breaking Ceremony.
“It’s an absolute honour to be The Royce, Brand Ambassador. The Display Suite is in the foyer of Panthers. I drop by quite regularly to see how things are going. I’ve seen what The Royce will look like inside and out – impressive – this place even has its own movie theatre! Its walking distance to Panthers Penrith World of Entertainment and Pepper Stadium guarantees residents will never be short of entertainment.”
“The Royce Seniors’ Retirement Living Development is the result of a unique collaboration between Tulich and Panthers Penrith World of Entertainment, with a shared vision which truly reflects our “Retire to Live” corporate philosophy.” Bianca Tulich, Director Tulich.
The Royce @ Panthers Penrith has been designed for the modern retiree, who wants to enjoy an active lifestyle. Stage 1 of The Royce will be completed by December 2018. The construction area is now fenced off and in the coming months you’ll see plenty of action.
If you haven’t been to Panthers World of Entertainment lately, there’s a display suite in the foyer and you can reserve your apartment there. Every apartment at The Royce will be fantastic, but if you get in early, you’ll be able to reserve the one that best suits you.
