RETIREMENT living has come a long way.
Those were the apt words of Brisbane Lord Mayor Graham Quirk as he oversaw the next step on that path with the opening of Kingsford Terrace retirement community's latest development last week.
The 'Duporth' building has been hailed as setting a new standard in retirement living with its state-of-the-art community facilities including a café, heated pool, wine room and many more.
"(Duporth) is a wonderful example of what (retirement living) can be," Lord Mayor Quirk told residents, guests and developers at the opening of the building.
"The days of having fairly simplistic living experiences are long gone.
"(Duporth) really does reflect what we all want which is, regardless of our age, financial circumstances, we want to have a good lifestyle.
"And so this has really been reflected very much in this facility."
The building, named after the Duporth Private School, houses 53 one-, two- and three-bedroom homes and was designed by O'Neill Architecture and built by McNab Constructions.
A product of Aurora Holdings, apartments at Kingsford Terrace retirement community are selling from $395,000.
