St Vincent Wellness Centre Kangaroo Point

Preliminary plans for an integrated wellness campus community in Kangaroo Point, under St Vincent’s Health Australia, have been given the green light. 



The wellness campus project was first lodged under DA A005844698 in 2021 for the four-lot site at 363, 365, 373 and 411 Main Street, Kangaroo Point.

The six-stage, 20-year development will offer a residential precinct and a health, aged-care and education masterplan. 

St Vincent’s has had a presence at Kangaroo Point for 70 years and said there was a “changing landscape of aged care” and an increased consumer interest in remote and virtual health services.

It operates the St Vincent’s Private Hospital Brisbane on the site, with a range of hospital, palliative care and residential aged-care buildings at the southern end of the site.

The healthcare specialist said the 18.8sq m site was a rare, under-developed plot on the Kangaroo Point peninsula.

The five buildings planned for the precinct will be from 15 to 19 storeys.

According to the initial plans, construction will begin at the northern part of the site, which is currently an open-air car park.

The first stage of the Kangaroo Point Wellness Campus will offer three levels of parking whilst Stage Two comprises the healthcare and residential aged-care accommodation. Once completed and occupied, the buildings on the western side of the site will be demolished. 



Following approval of the preliminary plans, a more detailed planning application will be prepared and lodged with the council.
