Village status

In September 2020, Summerset purchased land to build its ninth retirement village in Auckland and its first in the East Auckland area. The 2.8ha site is located off Thurston Place and is close to the Half Moon Bay Marina.

When complete, living options available will range from independent living and serviced apartments, to a care centre providing both rest home and hospital level care. It will also contain Summersets' industry-leading Memory Care Centre for people living with dementia.
