Vendor makes an emotional decision
FOR former owner and developer Marcus Barlow, the change in ownership of Regency Park Retirement Village was a difficult decision to make.
Approached by the Churches of Christ in Queensland about 12 months ago, the businessmaan needed to ensure the decision was the best for everyone.
The difficult decision was made in consultation with business partner Ed Barber.
"It came down to the decision - do we press on or pass the stewardship onto an organisation who shared the vision and can push it on to completion." Mr Barlow said. "It was a hard decision to mark but I think we've done the right thing."
A mammoth undertaking from the beginning, Regency Park is now a 91-unit facility with a unique community atmosphere and excellent facilities.
Mr Barlow said Churches of Christ in Queensland was the best choice to further the development of the village, given the vast experience and resources the organisation has at its disposal. He addedhe would most likely look at another, albeit much smaller, project in the near future.
