General News

8th Sep 2021

The Foundation is a new premium retirement village located in the vibrant suburb of Parnell. Combining world-class facilities with impeccably designed residences and hospital-level care, The Foundation is a place where discerning individuals can enjoy their retirement years in style.

In this article, we explore what you can expect from The Foundation and why it is regarded as one of the leading retirement villages in Auckland.

Centrally located in Parnell, the oldest suburb in Auckland

Nestled in the heart of Parnell, The Foundation boasts one of the most sought-after residential locations in all of Auckland. Many of Auckland’s cultural highlights are within easy walking distance of the village, including the Auckland Domain, Parnell Library, Holy Trinity Cathedral, upmarket shopping precincts in Newmarket and Parnell Rise, and much, much more.


Parnell is a precinct steeped in history. Fondly known as the city’s oldest suburb, Parnell was established following the European settlement of Auckland in 1841. Many of the early buildings remain standing to this day, lending Parnell an undeniable historical charm. Today, Parnell is home to a flourishing hospitality scene, diverse boutiques, stunning public gardens and some of the best art galleries in the country.

Beautifully designed residences

Where you live - the space you call home - shapes your retirement experience. The Foundation offers a variety of generously proportionate one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments that have been meticulously crafted to offer the best in design, comfort and care. All suites at The Foundation feature high ceilings, wood floors and ducted air conditioning, along with an integrated scullery and separate laundry equipped with modern appliances. Large, double-glazed windows provide a real sense of light and space, while the gas fireplace and private covered balcony available in many residences further add to the welcoming atmosphere.

Key priorities at The Foundation are residents’ comfort and safety, which serve as the driving forces behind many of the village’s design choices. Secure underground car parking, state-of-the-art security systems and 24-hour in-residence assistance provide all residents with an extra layer of comfort and security.

High-end facilities and services

The Foundation is more than just a place to call home. It’s a vivacious community, a place where like-minded individuals can connect, socialise and pursue their passions.

While the best of Auckland city might be right on the doorstep, there’s a superb range of amenities available within The Foundation precinct itself. Have a coffee with friends at the on-site cafe, relax in the roof terrace garden or take a dip in the swimming pool - wherever your interests lie, you’re sure to find something that resonates with you at The Foundation.
