Our 500th resident at Cornerstone Living is a familiar face within the community. Lillian Hsu and her family recently moved into their brand new four-bedroom townhouse after renting in the Cornerstone Living neighbourhood for more than a year.

Deciding to move from your family home is a big decision. That was the case for Lillian, who has lived in the area for many years and wanted to remain local. For her and her family, the opportunity to purchase a new townhouse meant they could simply move straight in and begin enjoying their new home. She also wanted a low-maintenance home that would still have enough space for her family.




Here’s more of Lillian’s story and some of her favourite places around Sunnybank.

Where have you moved from?

I have lived in the area for a long time and wanted to remain local. We lived in Roberstone for 20 years and rented in Cornerstone Living while our townhouse was being built.

What drew you to Cornerstone Living?

I like the master planned community that is being developed here and the location is very convenient. We used to have a very big house with a swimming pool and garden and got to the age where we wanted a simpler life. We were looking for four-bedroom townhouses and that’s when a friend told me about Cornerstone Living.

Why did you choose to buy a townhouse?

The layout of our townhouse was one of the many reasons to buy. The four-bedroom design is suited to multi-generational living and is very flexible for families. We liked the idea of one bedroom and a full bathroom downstairs, so that older people don’t have to go up and down all the time.

What do you like about the area?

I like it because we have lived here for so long. Being about three minutes from Sunnybank Plaza, which has most of the things I need like the post office and supermarket, I am there most days. Otherwise I can go to Garden City.

When Cornerstone Living is complete in 2020, it will be home to approximately 3,000 people. As we begin construction on the next stages of the neighbourhood, we can’t help but wonder, who will be resident number 1,000?
