VANCOUVER – Concert is pleased to announce Origin Active Lifestyle Communities as the new operator of our Tapestry Retirement Communities - Arbutus Walk, Village Gate West and Wesbrook Village – effective early December 2016.
In May, Tapestry’s previous operator announced their decision to withdraw management service. In moving forward, it was critical to find an operator who would be committed to the relationship and hospitality-driven model that Tapestry is known for.
“Origin’s leadership in providing healthy and active lifestyles to seniors across the country is aligned with Tapestry’s philosophy of providing a wealth of options for a satisfying, active retirement lifestyle,” says Brian McCauley, Concert’s President and Chief Operating Officer. “We are confident this new partnership will benefit all residents, employees and the future growth of Tapestry.”
Currently managing four communities with nearly 600 corporate and site team members, Origin is a 100% Canadian owned private company that has been operating seniors living communities for nearly 15 years. With innovative policies and procedures that encompass every aspect of operations, Origin’s hallmark is their deep commitment to resident wellness and staff training
“Concert is redefining seniors living with Tapestry Retirement Communities,” says Neil Prashad, President and CEO, Origin Active Lifestyle Communities. “It offers residents an active, independent lifestyle with extraordinary choices in dining, health and wellness, fitness, recreational activities, education, travel and hobbies.”
Founded in 1989, Concert specializes in developing rental apartments, condominium homes and retirement communities, acquiring and developing commercial, industrial and infrastructure properties and in property management. With operations in British Columbia, Alberta and Ontario and the backing of more than 200,000 Canadians represented by the union and management pension plans who own Concert, our commitment is to build strong, sustainable communities across Canada.
