Rathdowne Place will be Australia’s newest inner-city retirement, aged care and wellbeing precinct. This contemporary urban community will be situated in Carlton, one of Melbourne’s
most cosmopolitan and exciting suburbs. Inspired by our ethos “Living Better”, its unique combination of premium accommodation, allied health, home care and lifestyle services in one precinct promises residents an enriched life in a stunning and thoughtfully designed environment.

Rathdowne Place will be a shining example of worldclass accommodation offering an impressive range of onsite services, amenity and community activities. These include the serenity of
our wellbeing centre complete with gym, indoor heated pool, yoga classes, massage therapy and more.

The exemplary design by Jackson Architecture and Fender Katsalidis Architects brings a modern twist to the streetscape. The thoughtful, contemporary interiors will provide comfort and privacy while splendidly landscaped gardens will connect and engage the community. High-tech rooms feature fully integrated movement activated lighting sensors at night and smart TVs to remotely connect residents to family and friends.

Situated in cosmopolitan Carlton, just two kilometres from Melbourne’s CBD, Rathdowne Place sits on the door step of Melbourne’s best parks and community facilities.
