Marcon Proposes New Oakridge Seniors Centre

Marcon is proposing to build a new seniors home in Vancouver’s Oakridge district.

The developer has submitted a rezoning application to construct a long-term care facility along West 41st Avenue near Oak Street. Vancouver-based Amica Senior Lifestyles, which would operate the care home, and designer Shift Architecture are partnering with Langley, B.C.-based Marcon on the development project

If all goes according to plan, the 1026-1108 West 41st location will be rezoned as a community care facility from a residential district. The six-storey building is slated to contain 164 long-term care units and feature several amenities, according to Marcon.

The rezoning application touts the proposed building’s stone and wood features and cites approvals of similarly zoned facilities in the area.

The project is designed to serve seniors who can no longer care for themselves and require 24-hour nursing assistance. Services would include memory care.

The Oakridge area is undergoing massive redevelopment as its namesake mall and surrounding community receive an overhaul.
