The long-standing medical office building at 1900-1912 Richmond Rd. will soon be demolished to make way for a senior’s care home for people with memory problems.
The property currently houses a four-storey building that includes the Jubilee Medical Clinic, which hosts six general practitioners, a local pharmacy, the Victoria Heart Institute Foundation and a Lifelabs.
The proposed site, Maison Victoria Seniors, is put forward by Milliken Development and designed by NORR Architects. It would be a five-storey building consisting of 137 assisted living units for seniors with memory problems from disorders such as Alzheimer’s and dementia.
The family practice currently at the site does not have an alternative location at this moment. Physicians were unable to comment at the time of publication.
The development will be presented to the Victoria committee of the whole on Thursday, April 11. If passed by council, it will then be brought forward for a public hearing.
