Seniors’ home planned for Harry Jerome development in North Vancouver
Darwin Construction’s development in North Vancouver, which will see the replacement of the Harry Jerome Recreation Centre, continues to advance, with the announcement of new seniors housing.
The upcoming mixed-use neighbourhood, known as Lonsdale Square, will include a new Sunrise Senior Living Community, offering assisted living and “memory care” support — for those living with dementia or Alzheimer’s.
The new seniors’ home should be complete by 2022, with construction beginning later this year.
The need is great — North Vancouver is one of the fastest-growing and aging cities in Canada. It’s projected that one-in-four people in B.C. will be over 65 by 2031.
Once complete, Lonsdale Square will include the following:
- new Harry Jerome rec centre
- over 800 new homes, including below-market/market rental, non-profit housing and seniors assisted living
- over 90,000 sq ft. of strata retail and office space
- new city park connected to the city’s “Green Necklace” bike path
