People who want to find out more about the re-development of the Inglewood Care Centre site but don't feel comfortable going to an in-person open house can attend a virtual information evening on October 29.
The virtual event is from 7 to 8 p.m.
It will start with an overview of the project, followed by an opportunity to submit written questions in real time to be answered by development team members for the balance of the session.
People who want to "attend" can log on here.
The aging care centre is at the corner of Taylor Way and Inglewood Avenue in West Vancouver is owned by Baptist Housing.
The first phase of the 699-unit plan is to build a new seniors care centre before demolishing the old one and starting on the next three phases.
Along with the replacement of the existing 230-unit care centre, the $400-million project includes:
• 69 new long-term private care units
• 50 new private-pay assisted living units
• 50 new affordable seniors housing suites
• 70 new seniors independent living suites
• 125 new seniors life-lease suites
• 105 staff housing units and
• the possibility of a childcare centre
Meanwhile, the second drop-in open houses are over two sessions on Nov. 6:
• 3 to 4:30 p.m.
• 5:30 to 7 p.m.
Both sessions are at Har El, the North Shore Centre for Jewish Life, at 1305 Taylor Way. The centre is next door to the project site.
No pre-registration is required but, due to COVID-19 restrictions, participation is limited 50 people per session. Everyone attending will be required to register as they enter the open house for the purposes of contact tracing.
