Rangeford expands retirement living development
Leading investor and developer Octopus Healthcare has announced completion of the second phase of expansion of the Wadswick Green retirement living community in Wiltshire.
Managed by operator Rangeford, the development now has an additional 45 independent living apartments on top of the 86 apartments already sold and in operation. The development also features 26 assisted living community apartments, with the whole site providing aspirational living to people with a range of ages and needs.
Kevin Beirne, Director at Octopus Healthcare, said: “Modern retirement communities like Wadswick Green offer people an attractive lifestyle in later life, and the progress of this site is testament to Rangeford’s commitment to improving retirement living in the UK.
“The newly instated management team have had an impressive start to their tenure. We look forward to our continued partnership with them and supporting the business’ growth developing more retirement communities across the UK.”
Further expansion of Wadswick Green is under way with the construction of 45 new independent living apartments, with a further 45 independent living units planned to break ground later in 2019.
Howard Nankivell, Chief Executive Officer of Rangeford, said: “The completion of this development is an exciting milestone for us and highlights our progress in establishing Rangeford as a leading operator of exceptional quality retirement living in the UK. The expansion of Wadswick Green builds on the completion of phase 1 in 2015, which saw 112 contemporary apartments developed, and solidifies this as one of our flagship sites.
“The standard of living offered in this dynamic retirement community is outstanding and, with additional apartments made available, we can now offer the exciting and enjoyable community lifestyle it provides to more people entering this stage of their lives.”
