The revamped Club will be set over three levels with multiple restaurants, cafes, lounge and bar facilities. It will also offer a 1,500m2 multipurpose area, meeting spaces for community groups,as well as a retail component. On level 3 there will be an additional 500m2 function room available for the community to hire. There will also be a 406 space underground carpark.
The residential component of The Heart of Willoughby will include 126 retirement living apartments in Hyegrove Willoughby, the luxury Retirement Living Community in The Heart of Willoughby. Apartment residents of Hyegrove Willoughby will enjoy a concierge service, on-site building manager, plethora of daily activities, dining facilities, indoor swimming pool, gym/pilates studio and care with Registered Nurses on site 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
