Is a New Living Area for Seniors Coming to the City of Burlington?



Is a New Living Area for Seniors Coming to the City of Burlington?

A new senior’s living area could be coming to the City of Burlington but nothing is set in stone quite yet. 

According to the City of Burlington, the city has received an application from Spruce Partners Inc. and Amico Properties Inc. (Amica) to change the Zoning and Official Plan designation for the property site. This change would allow for a senior’s living development with building heights of up to 17 storeys to be built. 

The site property in question is 1157 – 1171 North Shore Blvd., in Ward 1.


The proposed senior’s living area would consist of a 17-storey building, a 12-storey building, and an 11-storey building, transitioning down to 2-storeys on the north side of the property site. There would be 475 suites in total with 180 staff members on site at any given time.

Breaking things down a little bit further, there would be 71 memory care units, 95 assisted living units, and 309 independent living units. There would be 220 parking spaces available underground, 145 of these spaces would be designated for staff and visitors leaving 75 spaces for residents. 

The city has not yet made any decisions regarding this application yet. And before a decision is made, either approving the application or refusing it, the city is asking for feedback from Burlington residents.

Residents can share their thoughts and comments at a neighbourhood meeting that will be held on Wednesday, Jan. 9, 2019 at the Art Gallery of Burlington in the Shoreline Room. This meeting will start at 7 p.m. Or, residents can submit comments to the city no later than Jan. 16, 2019.

Written comments should be sent to the following address: 

Department of City Building:

P.O. Box 5013, 426 Brant St. Burlington, ON, L7R 3Z6 

Attn: Lisa Stern, Senior Planner 

Phone: 905-335-7600 ex 7824 

E-mail: [email protected] 

After residents’ provide their comments and feedback, the city will make a recommendation to the Planning and Development Committee of council.
