Let’s review Taggart Group proposal for a new 139-unit, 7 storey-Retirement Residence attached to their existing apartment building at 100 Varley. Meet your neighbours! Free light refreshments.
Please don’t miss – why?
This meeting is crucial! It is your key opportunity to review the proposal and meet and comment directly to Taggart firm, City Planning, and Councilor Wilkinson before the project goes to City Hall Planning Committee. KBCA and many, many of the community insist the character of Beaverbrook and our Garden City be carried forward.
Come, share your comments. Help make sure the project is in every way an asset to the community and provides an appropriate answer to a real need – and keeps community values intact.
Excerpt from Taggart Group brief:
- The new project would feature setbacks from Varley Drive and Varley Lane, and colours blending with existing structures. High quality landscaping would include and protect the existing hill fronting Varley Drive. Additional tree plantings will soften or screen the building from Varley Lane and Teron Road.
- Taggart Group are basing this project on "Aging in Place". Independent, active seniors and others would continue life in the existing 8 storey apartment building already in place. Those residents would also have access to the proposed new Retirement Residence amenities. These amenities would include activity room, hair salon, chapel, theater, medical wellness center, lounges, gardens and private roof top terrace. Seniors requiring a higher level of help, but less than Nursing Care, may choose to transition to the new Retirement Residence, which will include options for “Independent Living” and “Assisted Living”. Its smaller suites will be designed for individual suite care, home cooked meals in the dining room, laundry services, entertainment etc.
