Earthworks have commenced at Oryx Communities’s $50 million aged care home in the affluent Perth suburb of Nedlands, 7km west of the city centre.

Piling to construct the basement is scheduled to start next week, Oryx Communities Founder and Managing Director Toby Browne-Cooper told The SOURCE.

The 80-bed home on Betty Street and Doonan Road is expected to be completed Q2 2025.

The Melvista‘ will operate on the ‘small household’ architectural model that Oryx pioneered with The Richardson West Perth and The Queenslea Claremont, complemented by a person-centric care philosophy.

Each ‘small household’ Oryx home typically has around one dozen bedroom suites centred around a shared kitchen, dining and living area, embracing the concept that the heart of every family home is the kitchen. Like other Oryx homes, The Melvista will include a Wellness and Rehabilitation Clinic, and 24/7 RN support.
