An innovative, award winning developer
Building an innovative community for seniors begins at the ground level. It starts with a developer whose proven excellence in design, construction and superior customer service is already established. In this regard, award-winning Concert Real Estate Corporation already had a proven track record as one of Canada’s premier developers. Concert was not only capable of envisioning such a project but also possessed the means, resources and experience to make it a reality.
Owned exclusively by Canadian union and management pension funds since 1989, Concert is first and foremost a community builder. Through its strategic alliances with other Canadian pension plan companies, Concert recognized the need for a new concept in seniors housing, one that addressed the realistic needs of an aging population. As a result, Concert began to redefine and create a new model for seniors living communities across Canada.
Tapestry at Arbutus Walk, in Vancouver, was Concert’s first retirement community. It earned the 2003 Grand SAM Award from the Canadian Home Builders’ Association, recognizing outstanding performance in both the building and marketing of a single project. In June 2005 the Urban Development Institute (UDI) also presented Concert with an Award for Excellence for Seniors Housing.
Since its inception in 1989, Concert has created more than 8,000 rental and condominium homes, always upholding its commitment to building quality homes suited to the needs of our customers and the communities in which they live. Designed and constructed by our highly skilled team of professionals and trades people to meet the refined demands of today’s seniors, Tapestry Retirement Communities expand on the quality, sustainability and community-minded focus that has been our company’s goal since the beginning.
A leading management company
One of the truly unique aspects of living in a Tapestry Retirement Community is the unmatched quality of the care and services provided by our dedicated professional staff.
To ensure the highest possible level of performance in these areas, Leisure Care manages and operates Tapestry communities throughout Canada. Leisure Care has spent more than three decades perfecting the art of refined retirement living and providing an independent lifestyle for seniors in a community setting. In fact, its experience has elevated Leisure Care to a level where it is one of the largest privately owned retirement and assisted living operators in North America.
Committed to redefining seniors living communities across Canada, Concert has developed and co-owns Tapestry at Village Gate West and Tapestry at Wesbrook Village with Ontario Municipal Employees Retirement System (OMERS) and Sun Life Financial.
