Age in place with a menu of services available to you.

The anticipation is mounting as Vancouver Island's latest luxury senior retirement community moves closer to assume occupancy, which includes 34 one- and two-bedroom exclusive condominiums for ownership, situated on the scenic 9th and 10th floors.

In addition to condo living, The Vista by Avenir Senior Living—a well-appointed 11-storey building—is positioned to deliver a continuum of care with extended support services into any of the 95 independent rental suites. There will also be 48 dedicated memory care studios on two floors, with 24-hour support. 

The ultimate in maintenance-free condo living allows you the freedom to live well without compromising on a luxury lifestyle as you age. As a Vista resident, you'll have the ability to age in place with a menu of services that can be provided in your private suite.

"Condo ownership allows individuals that are normally divesting themselves for the long-term family home to be able to preserve their capital rather than putting their money into continuous rent," says Wayne Melvin, general manager of The Vista.

"Then they're just transitioning to standard condo fees that they would have in any condominium. Further fees allow residents access to all the services and amenities in the building."

Fees for one- and two-bedrooms are paid monthly as per the service agreement, while additional service plans are available à la carte, for instance, meal and dining plans; housekeeping service plans; as well as, a support service plan whenever needed.

2. High-quality interior features

The Vista adheres to a model of sustainable elegance by offering bright, beautiful living spaces and quality modern finishes. Choose between a sophisticated design of two floor plans: one-bedroom, one-bathroom with approximately 670 square feet, or two-bedroom, two-bathroom, with approximately 922 square feet.

Every condo and rental suite have a private balcony with panoramic ocean and city views, and space to accommodate a two-person bistro table, perfect for enjoying your coffee or al fresco dining. As outdoor temperatures fluctuate, you'll be comfortable indoors year-round with individualized climate control: air conditioning and heating. Pet-friendly suites means your dog or cat will be content, too.

Stylish and functional kitchens include marbled quartz countertops and premium appliances, like the Fulgor built-in wall oven and induction cooktop, Blomberg built-in refrigerator and dishwasher, and Panasonic microwave. "The refrigerator and dishwasher have finished fronts that blend seamlessly with the custom kitchen cabinetry," reveals Melvin. 

"Condo bathrooms have heated tile floors, and the two-bedrooms have walk-in showers; the second bathroom has a tub. Each suite is also outfitted with their own washer and dryers."

Being a condo owner and a member of The Vista Club means you have access to a continental breakfast every morning and use of all amenity areas and patios.

"Owners have options for meal plans in the building's different dining rooms, too," explains Melvin. "The condos have full kitchens whereas the rentals have kitchenettes."

A heightened focus on social engagement and active living is evident in the fitness studio and art studio on the top floor's Grand Salon, with a stunning 360-degree view of downtown Victoria and the ocean, out to the Olympic Mountains. 

On the ground floor, you'll be delighted with the convenience of the beauty salon and 42-seat movie theatre. Plus, you'll experience a variety of dynamic entertainment and stimulating daily social events, plus concierge services.

Other services include: scheduled transportation; transportation assistance; 24-hour emergency response system (pendant purchase required); and basic cable TV, with suites wired for internet and Wi-Fi.

The Presentation Centre is open Tuesday to Saturday, 11 a.m. – 5 p.m., to view the show suite.

"We have a list of vendors for the furnishings," reveals Melvin. "If somebody comes in and loves the bedroom suite, for example, we can share that information."

"The Vista's new Director of Sales, Sharon Unsworth, brings over 10 years of seniors' housing experience to her role. Sharon is currently conducting tours and getting everybody prepared for the opening," says Melvin.

"We're excited to be in the finishing stages of the building, and are looking forward to announcing our opening date in the coming weeks."
