Respect has proudly unveiled the next benchmark for the retirement living industry – having officially launched our organisation’s first fully-developed and constructed village, Reed Estate. 

The village’s grand opening was held on Saturday 5 August with a public event uniting the greater Launceston community. Attendees – including several community leaders – enjoyed the festivities, entertainment, and the opportunity to tour the Reed Estate’s state-of-the-art facilities and landscaped grounds. 

Located at Prospect Vale on the south-western side of Launceston, Reed Estate has been purpose-built for comfortable retirement living. And with its development ongoing, the village will soon include more than 60 brand new units – each comprising a combination of two and three-bedroom freestanding villas – inviting even more from the local community to join its growing family. 

Mark Eagleston, Respect’s Chief of Retirement Living, said the launch event was a great success, and hailed the Reed Estate development as one of the most exciting projects he has been involved in during his 16 years in the retirement living industry.

“Respect has always been committed to providing exceptional care and support to older Australians, ensuring they live their lives with dignity and comfort,” he said. “The inauguration of Reed Estate has marked another milestone in our journey to create a community that fosters a sense of belonging, independence, and wellbeing for its residents. 

“Reed Estate represents a significant investment in retirement living in Tasmania, and that’s why it was so important to share the launch with so many people from Launceston and beyond.  

“It was a terrific day and testament to the great sense of culture and community that is already being built at Reed Estate – a legacy we’re so honoured and proud to be part of.”

Jason Binder, Respect’s Managing Director and CEO, shared his gratitude to the greater Launceston community for turning out in droves to support the grand opening. Turning an eye to the future, he said he was excited for what the future holds for Reed Estate, following years of planning and development, and all the positive community connections it will foster moving forward. 

“It’s been fantastic to see the Reed Estate concept grow and develop, always focused on offering the senior community in greater Launceston a service that has previously been quite limited in the area,” Mr Binder said.

“As Reed Estate undergoes further stages of development, it will increase its capacity – enabling more residents to be part of a growing and vibrant community. I look forward to seeing first-hand the village’s strong community culture grow and develop – a sense of belonging and togetherness that I know will be synonymous with Reed Estate for generations to come.”
