Company History and Timeline

Seachange Lifestyle Resorts is owned and operated by Pradella Property Ventures, bringing with it almost 60 years of experience, knowledge and innovation.

Founded in 1959 and still family owned, Pradella Property Ventures has long led the way in the pursuit of excellence in property development and is one of South East Queensland’s most-awarded, property development companies.

Among its most notable developments, Pradella lists the Metropolitan Hotel in Spring Hill, Hillcrest Apartments in South Brisbane, Paradise Island in Surfers Paradise, the Bardon Conference Centre, the Eagle Street Conference Centre, the Dockside Hotel and Brisbane’s Roma Street Parklands.

It is this extensive experience and driving commitment to success and innovation that first saw the company identify a gap in the market for over 50s retirement living – thus Seachange Lifestyle Resorts was born.

“Over the next 25 years the number of Australians aged between 55 and 75 will nearly double to 5.3 million people, and the demand to provide quality living options will be enormous,” says Seachange Lifestyle Resorts Managing Director, David Pradella.

“Our vision was to establish a benchmark in community living for seniors that would set the standard for everything to come.”

In 2008 therefore, the Seachange Lifestyle Resorts brand was created with 2009 bringing with it the creation of their first project at Arundel, which has since gone on to become Australia’s most awarded over 50s lifestyle resort.

This was followed in 2014 by Seachange Emerald Lakes. Together, the two lifestyle resorts have had combined sales of 550 residences, totalling some $300million.

Now in 2017, the Riverside Coomera development has expanded the Seachange offering, with its 124 homes, a Riverhouse and Country Club set to deliver yet another world-leading development.

“We’re very excited to unveil each stage of Riverside Coomera,” says David. “From the extensive list of amenities on offer, to the natural beauty of the site and the architectural style, we believe our latest lifestyle resort will be a truly unique product that will effortlessly set itself apart.

As to the future, Seachange already has a new project (at Toowoomba), to be released in 2018.
