Dorchester Terrace Residence to Start Construction Next Month
Sifton Properties' Dorchester Terrace is a 90,000 sq.ft. retirement home set to reside in a small community in Dorchester, Ontario. A new retirement home is much needed due to the rise in population of recently retired community members. Holabird & Root was commissioned to design a 92-unit structure on a three-acre parcel of land surrounded by a dense single family residential area. The design includes an inviting oasis is created at the main entry to the building and gives a sense of gathering space on the exterior.
Some of the amenities on the main level include a large dining hall, a gym, hydrotherapy pool area, a cafe, and a hair salon. The residents enjoy exterior spaces adjacent to the dining hall and a walking track throughout the entire parcel. An abundance of parking is utilized by the staff, visitors, and residents. EMCAD Consulting Engineers will provide MEP/FP engineering, with structural engineering provided by Van Boxmeer & Stranges Engineering, civil engineering by CF Crozier & Associates, and landscape architecture by Ron Koudys Landscape Architects. Holabird & Root Team members include Rusty Walker, Greg Marinelli, Cindy Schneider, Mat Strack, and Jim Miller.
Construction for the retirement home is slated to start next month with occupied completion projected for October of 2016.View all stories
