Amica at the Gorge

CONTINUUM OF CARE SENIORS HOUSING

Victoria, BC

The Amica at the Gorge is a comprehensive seniors community located on the Gorge waterway in Victoria on the former Cheltenham Motel site and the old Brookman’s Store site on the corner of Admirals and Gorge. Originally conceived for independent living only, the project was expanded at the operator's request to include a continuum of care with the addition of assisted living services and a dedicated memory care unit for individuals experiencing dementia. The completed project defines an important urban node in the broader community. Shared public amenities, such as the cafe in the refurbished corner store, help knit the community together while also providing meaningful, secure outdoor spaces for the residents – a layering of public and private that completes this highly visible corner.
