IT WAS the site where Australian stars like Graham Kennedy and Bert and Patti Newton started their TV careers and shows like Hey Hey its Saturday were filmed.

And now the site of the former Channel 9 Studios on Bendigo Street, Richmond is to be transformed with the addition of a new over-55s community by Lendlease.

Situated near Melbourne's sporting and arts precincts, with the city's soul on the doorstep the new community is also set to become Australia's first 6-Star Green Star intergenerational precinct.

Designed by architects Bates Smart, the inner-city community offers spacious and easy living apartments designed around a vibrant central garden with a ground floor cafe, an incredible rooftop terrace with sweeping city views, a resident's lounge, library and bar.

There will also be a theatre and a Wellness Centre with an indoor pool, gym, and yoga studio.

"This inner-city address will offer a unique urban lifestyle for over-55s," said Tony Randello, managing director of Retirement Living at Lendlease. It will feature 116 apartments with views to the city, Burnley and the Yarra River. Aged care and residential townhouses will also be offered.

The homes range in size from one-bedroom plus study through to the three-bedroom plus study designs, along with outdoor spaces and secure car parking.

Ideally located with shops, cafes and medical facilities only minutes away. Few Melburnian's can say they live where such icons have graced the halls.

A beautiful precinct with the original heritage building fronting Bendigo Street, the new community proudly imbues a serene sense of place and history.

Steeped in a special history, the new over 55s community was unveiled by Australian TV's golden girl Patti Newton on a special evening hosted on May 8, where the new offering was proudly integrated with TV's golden era.

Expressions of Interest are now open on the apartments and the new community is growing. To learn more click here.

Join Richmond Retirement Living for a free lunch at The Botanical Restaurant, 12pm on Thursday June 20, 2019, 169 Domain Rd, South Yarra.

You'll learn more about the home designs, what it means to live in a social and supportive community and chat to future residents who will soon be calling the over 55s community home. RSVPs essential to secure your place.
