September, 2020In a major milestone for Queenstowns first retirement village,
Queenstown Lakes District Mayoress Karen Boult this month turned the
first sod on a grand $12 million clubhouse.
Queenstown Country Club (QCC) owner Arvida which bought the
Ladies Mile community, as it calls its retirement villages, last year
says the 1650 square metre facility is not only a vote of confidence in
the local market but also a welcome injection of money and jobs in the

Like the communitys so-far 48 two- and three-bedroom homes, the
lodge has been designed by local architects Warren and Mahoney.
The design echoes an alpine lodge, with vaulted ceilings and large
expanses of glass to reflect views of the Remarkables and Coronet Peak.
Features will include a 15-metre swimming pool and indoor spa pool,
theatre, bowling green, games room, fitness centre, library, bar and
cafe, two lounges and a kitchen and dining area.
The clubhouse will quickly become a vibrant hub where our residents
and their friends and families will be able to socialise, share great food,
use the pool and gym, look after their health and pursue special
interests, McDonald says.
It will be the beating heart of a community thats all about living a
fulfilling and stimulating life.
Constructions expected to take 14 months.
QCC sales manager Hilary OHagan says another 13 settlements on
homes are due between now and next March.
Demand has been very strong post-lockdown with almost all our built
stock selling down.
Many residents have commented they are very pleased to be living at
QCC during this pandemic because they dont feel isolated, with great
neighbours all looking out for each other.
While the clubhouse is being built, a company belonging to original QCC
Sanderson continues work on the second stage of a nearby commercial
and medical hub, including Southern Cross Central Lakes Hospital.
