Getting into Motion

With 463 apartments, Motion represents the largest assured rental housing project Concert has undertaken to date and builds on a track record of award-winning and innovative rental developments.

Situated at the corner of Bay and Dundas Streets in the heart of downtown Toronto, Motion’s location is second to none. The 29-storey development offers air-conditioned apartments in a variety of layouts – from efficient studio suites up to two bedroom plus den homes – all with modern finishes and energy-efficient appliances including dishwasher and in-suite laundry. Residents will also enjoy a wide range of amenities and signature Concert On-Call customer service.

First move-ins anticipated for this spring; those interested in finding out more about this unique development are encouraged to visit www.MotionbyConcert.com and register their interest.

A decade of redefining seniors housing

This January marked the tenth anniversary of Concert’s commitment to redefining seniors living with three Tapestry Retirement Communities now operational in Vancouver, BC and Toronto, ON.

Known at the time as The O’Keefe, Concert’s first retirement community, Tapestry at Arbutus Walk, opened its doors ten years ago in 2003 with the vision of providing seniors with a unique opportunity to be a part of Concert’s master-planned Arbutus Walk development in Vancouver’s Kitsilano neighbourhood. Designed for a new generation of active seniors who desire personal choice and independent living, this community redefined traditional seniors housing and spurred the development of two other communities. Its innovative approach was quickly recognized by the Canadian Home Builders’ Association through their National SAM awards, receiving the national award for Best Multi-Family Housing Project. Shortly thereafter, Tapestry at Arbutus Walk was recognized by the Urban Development Institute with a Seniors Housing Award.

Building on the success of Tapestry at Arbutus Walk, Concert brought the Tapestry model of retirement living to the Etobicoke neighbourhood of Toronto in 2008. Tapestry at Village Gate West was similarly integrated into a Concert master-planned development, offering apartment homes with full-sized kitchens and a wealth of lifestyle enhancing services and amenities.  The development was the recipient of the 2009 MAC Award for Highrise Residential Development of the Year from the Federation of Rental-Housing Providers of Ontario (FRPO). 

Most recently, Tapestry at Wesbrook Village was constructed on the campus of the University of British Columbia in conjunction with the new Wesbrook Village neighbourhood. Along with the vast array of services and amenities offered within the community itself – including a restaurant, pub, fireside lounge, salon and spa, creative arts centre, fitness centre, rooftop garden, theatre and golf simulator – and the numerous convenience retailers located right outside the door in Wesbrook Village, residents have access to the cultural and educational amenities of the broader UBC campus. In addition to spectacular ocean views, the community’s unique location provides immediate access to Pacific Spirit Park and the unique recreational activities it offers. The recipient of the 2011 Georgie Award from the Canadian Home Builders’ Association of BC for Sustainable and Innovative Community, Tapestry at Wesbrook Village has continued the spirit of innovation that has made Tapestry a lasting success.

Still home to some of its original residents, anniversary celebration events are being planned throughout the year at Tapestry at Arbutus Walk. To learn more about Tapestry Retirement Communities, visit www.DiscoverTapestry.com .
