Built on the site of the old Coopers Brewery, in Adelaide’s leafy Leabrook, On Statenborough has won the Urban Development Institute of Australia’s Seniors Living Award.

The On Statenborough luxury retirement community, developed by Simon Chappel and David Smallacombe, consists of 124 apartments, set on a beautifully landscaped property of 17000sqm, in Leabrook, SA. It is one of the state’s first multi-level retirement projects.

It was announced last week that On Statenborough had won the UDIA senior’s living award, due to its innovative approach to urban development.

“Senior’s living developments need to be more than a housing development,” said the UDIA judging panel. “They need to sell a lifestyle, and Simon Chappel and David Smallacombe have gone that extra mile in presenting a development that offers a fully catered restaurant, pool, gym, games room and a chauffeured limousine which transports residents anywhere within a 10km radius”.

UDIA SA executive director, Terry Walsh, said “the national recognition is further proof SA is producing developers who are not only thinking outside the square but can compete on a national scale.

“It demonstrates they’re a leader in urban development while addressing critical social and environmental issues such as affordable housing and seniors’ accommodation”.
