Berwick Retirement Communities Moves Forward With 188-Unit Seniors Residence in Parksville, BC

News & Events

Victoria, BC, March 5th, 2020 – Berwick Retirement Communities is excited to announce that it will be moving forward with the 6-storey senior’s residence in Parksville, BC located at 180 Jensen Avenue East near the Parksville Community Centre.

This will be Berwick’s eighth community in British Columbia, and will offer Independent and Assisted Living services. The community will contain 188 residential units, ranging from one-bedroom, one-bedroom plus den to two-bedroom homes.

“With a growing economy on Vancouver Island, the Central Vancouver Island region is a growing hotspot destination for retirees because of its seaside beauty, mild climate and small-town feel. The ongoing, collaborative discussions with the City of Parksville about their bright and optimistic vision for their community’s future coupled with the fact that Orca Place Supportive Housing has positively managed the neighboring housing project has further validated Berwick’s decision to move forward with building a community in Parksville,” says CEO Chris Denford.

“On behalf of Parksville Council, I’m pleased Berwick has made the decision to move forward with this exciting new development. We are a community-oriented region with an amazing natural environment, a lively arts and cultural scene and we are a safe community to retire or raise a family. Parksville is currently seeing significant development, either completed or well underway that includes new rental buildings which will help to fill housing needs. We are pleased to welcome Berwick to Parksville,” said Parksville Mayor Ed Mayne.

In consideration of the fact that Parksville is a Coastal Community, the architectural design and character will showcase details influenced by the sandy beaches and the natural environment. The extensive landscape design will draw much attention to the pedestrian level where the experience of the residence can be enjoyed as a resident or pedestrian. The community will follow in the Berwick style of building vibrant, unique retirement communities in carefully planned locations. The community will feature signature Berwick amenity spaces that encourage active living and spacious residential suites, some offering spectacular views of the ocean and mountains depending on the suite orientation.

The building’s groundbreaking is planned for this spring and construction is scheduled for completion in spring/summer of 2022.
