Designing homes for our loved ones

Working with Pillar enables developers to rethink their long-term plans and help meet the demand for properties with elderly needs in mind by developing new types of residential communities or repurposing existing projects. Pillar offers many years of experience in designing, developing and operating retirement villages, and brings a team of unmatched capabilities to this growing area.

Pillar is pleased to be partnering with IOI Properties, Malaysia’s premier developer of residential, retail and commercial properties. Through our partnership, Pillar is helping IOI Properties in a new mission to be the leader in serving property clients at all stages of their lives through innovative design and customised residential communities that meet the specific needs of the elderly. We look forward to sharing the results of our partnership in the near future.

What is a retirement village?

A retirement village is a residential community or housing complex designed for older adults who are generally able to care for themselves; however, assistance from home care agencies are provided in some communities. Besides that, activities and socialization opportunities are often provided.

How can we help you?

Elders require different types of housing as they get older.Retirement villages offer a way to live independently while having all the conveniences they may need, such as shopping, medical facilities and a range of leisure activities. If you are interested in developing a new retirement village, wish to convert an existing project, or need help in designing elderly-friendly homes, we can help you. We will first schedule a brief call to learn more about your requirements and ensure they align well with our capabilities. From there, we’ll likely schedule a face-to-face meeting where we’ll discuss in more detail your specific requirements, financial objectives, and the type of assistance you need from Pillar.
