The new Fairview Lodge has been redeveloped on the site of the existing home which has served Whitby and its surrounding area since the mid 1950s.
The new three storey Fairview Lodge, which has achieved LEED Gold, will provide a modern, comfortable and efficient environment for residents, families and staff.
The design of the site considered the movement of residents, integration with the surrounding community, short and long-term parking, access to public transit and available space for future expansion. The location affords excellent views for residents to the park-like site and the active Dundas Street-West traffic corridor. Resident, family and staff input and community meetings played an important part in the design process.
The prominent sloping topography of the site allows a lower level service floor to be accessed from grade and the second floor special care unit to have an outdoor courtyard. The first floor boasts grade related courtyards for two RHAs, a central café, gymnasium, great room and celebration room.
Completed in summer 2015.
