There is no shortage of seniors’ communities in Victoria, but the latest offering by established developer Concert is redefining what it means to live an active, vibrant and engaged lifestyle.
Opened in February 2021, Tapestry at Victoria Harbour is a seniors community for independent, active aging adults, offering residents the opportunity to live in a dynamic and socially-connected environment where they can live their best life surrounded by likeminded friends and neighbours.
“Our commitment to wellness and supporting active aging is what really distinguishes Tapestry communities,” says Mark Andrew, Senior Vice President, Tapestry. “We believe wellness is the roadmap to staying independent longer so that individuals can continue to pursue their life’s passion and purpose to truly embrace a new age.”
Wellness underpins all of Tapestry’s service offerings with programming aligned to the seven dimensions of wellness to ensure a holistic approach that inspires mind, body and spirit.
Unlike other communities that focus on “delivery” to residents, Tapestry believes in partnering with employees and residents to create relevant, meaningful opportunities that inspire all involved to improve their quality of life. It is this unique approach that has earned Tapestry’s other communities, two in Vancouver and one in Toronto, recognition as among the Best in Wellness in North America – the only Canadian communities to earn this prestigious achievement.
“Although Tapestry at Victoria Harbour has been open a short time, it’s wonderful to see employees and residents partnering to explore wellness opportunities that resonate in the community and create an authentically local Tapestry ‘feeling’,” says Andrew.
Another differentiating Tapestry feature is the culinary experience offered in the community. Tapestry hires professional Red Seal chefs to oversee the development of appetizing menus that rotate seasonally to incorporate fresh, local and sustainable ingredients. Menus in the community’s Restaurant and Pub are reviewed by a certified dietician to ensure options are delicious and nutritionally-balanced, reflecting Tapestry’s focus on wellness.
Unique to Tapestry at Victoria Harbour is the table service provided by the community’s chefs. This service approach builds powerful intimacy between our residents, their guests, and the kitchen team, creating a shared understanding of preferences and desires. It is an experience akin to that offered by only the finest dining establishments and available at every meal enjoyed in the community’s gorgeous dining venues.
It only takes one look at Tapestry’s beautiful Victoria Harbour location to see what makes it absolutely extraordinary. Homes at Tapestry are as bright and stylish as they are functional, and every suite includes a full contemporary kitchen.
Suites boast unparalleled water, treetop and city views that showcase the beauty of the Inner Harbour. The fifth-floor deck is magnificent and provides a place for residents to soak in the stunning views while gardening, enjoying the cozy fireplace, barbecuing or simply lounging in comfort.
Additional services include weekly housekeeping and linen service, concierge service, and transportation via the community’s Tesla, a reflection of Tapestry’s focus on environmental sustainability, a principle reflected in all aspects of design and operation.
There has never been a better time to move into Tapestry, especially with its current grand opening offer of a $10,000 move-in credit for residents. Tapestry also takes the pain out of moving by offering move-in support services that can take care of the logistics to make the experience seamless and stress-free. Residents who opt to take advantage of Tapestry’s services arrive in their new suite with everything in place, their art hung on the walls and their cable and internet already connected.
“The only thing you really need to worry about on your first night in your new community is whether you’re going to cook at home or get something to eat in the Restaurant downstairs,” says Andrew. “Then again, you might also have room service delivered to your new home making that decision even simpler!”
