Juniper reveals latest in apartment living

Juniper, Uniting Church WA agency providing residential and community aged care, has opened its newest retirement apartments to provide greater accommodation options for people seeking quality lifestyle choices.

Chief Executive, Vaughan Harding, said understanding people’s changing needs and their desire to live a full life are at the heart of Juniper Orana in Menora.

“This initiative represents the best in retirement accommodation where residents can enjoy security, independence and the benefits of community living,” he said.

“Juniper Orana successfully promotes apartments for life and ‘ageing in place’ – a concept where housing and community design enable residents to live and enjoy their home for as long as possible.”

Vaughan said the accommodation is part of Juniper’s strategic plan to double its capacity to respond to community need which will also deliver an additional 450 aged care beds across Perth and regional WA.

The apartments are the latest stage of the redevelopment of the Juniper Elimatta site in Menora which comprises a mix of residential aged care, retirement villas and apartments.

“Plans for the balance of the site are currently under development and Juniper expects in coming months to submit to the City of Stirling a revised masterplan that will guide the broad uses of the site over future stages,” he said.

Juniper Orana, meaning ‘welcome’, features 40 self-contained apartments in a range of one, two and three bedroom or two-bed plus study layouts, each with a bathroom and air-conditioned open-plan living and dining area. Its other amenities include: Contemporary interiors, chic finishes and quality kitchen appliances; balconies with views on upper levels; choice of floor coverings to non wet areas; and 24-hour duress alarms plus secure parking.

Located on Bradford Street, the new apartments complement the organisation’s existing 17 two-by-two plus study villas which surround a contemporary clubhouse where all residents can enjoy its bowling green, lounge and outdoor entertaining areas, a reading room, café, covered pool and craft room.

Officially opened by the 30th Governor of Western Australia, Dr Ken Michael AC with Juniper Board Chair Mr Fred Boshart, Juniper Orana was dedicated by Past Moderator of the Uniting Church in Australia WA, Rev Ken Williams.

Perth architects Hames Sharley and builders Pyramid Constructions and other local suppliers were engaged to design and build the $18 million project.
