Since 2010 Milliken Development’s sole focus has been the creation and expansion of premium senior living communities. Milliken, often in partnership with Amica Senior Lifestyles (wholly owned by the Ontario Teachers Pension Plan), provides boutique, very high quality – assisted living and memory care residences for seniors. Recently we have been adding Independent Living to create a Senior’s Continuum of Care.
Since 2013 Milliken Real Estate Corporation has been partnered with Amica Senior Lifestyles to provide premier seniors communities. Milliken utilizes its extensive real estate development knowledge to acquire land to design and construct new communities, while Amica manages these communities as Canada’s premier operator. Milliken and Amica share long-term ownership.
Milliken’s first senior living community, Maison Britannia, opened in SW Calgary in December, 2013. Amica Lions Gate, previously Maison Senior Living, West Vancouver, opened in November, 2016. Several more seniors’ developments are in the construction and planning stages, including communities for about 375 seniors in Central Victoria, BC. We look forward to bringing our considerable development experience to create best in class seniors’ communities in select markets in Western Canada.
Prior to 2010 Milliken Development’s business focus was the creation of unique, inclusive, full city block urban mixed use communities in central Seattle, Washington and downtown Bellevue, Washington. We completed five such award winning urban developments at a total value today of about $750 million.
Amica Lions Gate, West Vancouver, BC
Phase 1 of Amica Lions Gate, formerly Maison Senior Living, West Vancouver, opened in November, 2016. This senior’s community has raised the bar considerably for the quality of senior’s care residences in Canada.
Located prominently at the corner of Taylor Way and Keith Road in West Vancouver, Phase 1 of Amica Lions Gate provides a home for 90 seniors with assisted living and memory (Alzheimer’s ) care needs in a luxurious and carefully planned residence that has become very well-known and regarded in West Vancouver.
Amenities and services include chef prepared meals, stunning views, 11 large patio areas, a tranquil outdoor walking path, a private dining room, extensive living areas, and a theatre room.
Amica Lions Gate’s Phase 2 expansion opened in September 2022. This 50 resident addition provides Independent Living, making Amica Lions Gate West Vancouver’s first true continuum of care (Independent Living, Assisted Living and Memory Care). This Independent Living addition will allow all residents to age in place, without any concern about being relocated due to changing physical or cognitive needs.
Amica Jubilee House, Victoria, BC
Amica Jubilee House will open in Fall 2023. Located at the corner of Fort Street and Richmond Road, this residence will provide 125 suites of Assisted Living and Memory Care.
Situated across the street from the Royal Jubilee Hospital and in close proximity to Oak Bay, James Bay, Cadboro Bay and Downtown Victoria, this residence will become the premier location for seniors in need of high-quality care.
Amenities and services will include chef prepared meals provided through 5 dining rooms, a bistro, theatre, salon and spa, games library, greenhouse, along with a beautifully manicured outdoor garden
Amica Jubilee House Expansion, Victoria BC
The proposed Maison/Amica Jubilee House Expansion is expected to open in early 2027. This addition will be focused on Independent Living, making Maison/Amica Jubilee House a true Continuum of Care (Independent Living, Assisted Living, Memory Care).
Situated immediately to the West of Phase 1, which is currently under construction, all units will have kitchens so residents can maintain their independence. Residents will also be able to access the amenities in Phase 1 through a covered and heated walkway. This Independent Living addition will allow residents to age in place, without any concern about being relocated due to changing physical and cognitive needs.
The New Amica Douglas House, Victoria, BC
Amica Douglas House is in James Bay, at 50 Douglas Street, across the road from Beacon Hill Park and the Mile Zero Monument. Originally built in 1966, Amica Douglas House is a 4-storey independent living facility that currently provides 102 suites.
The current residence is 2 separate buildings that were connected years ago. The proposal is to replace the existing Douglas House buildings with a modern 7 storey senior’s community which will focus exclusively on memory care and assisted living residents. The New Douglas House will meet and exceed current building standards, including fire and earthquake controls and spacious and modern elevators. It will offer chef prepared meals in multiple dining rooms, gracious living and tv rooms, generous common areas for gathering with friends, and family and will have a rooftop patio with planting beds and wonderful ocean and Beacon Hill Park views.
The existing historic home on Battery Street is proposed to be refurbished and refreshed and will be very much a part of the new Douglas House.
The New Douglas house will open in early 2027.
Amica Brittania, Calgary, AB
Amica Britannia, formerly Maison Senior Living, Calgary, opened in December, 2013. It is located at 49th Avenue SW and Elbow Drive – across from Britannia Plaza and at the heart of SW Calgary’s most affluent neighbourhoods.
Amica Calgary provides 70 senior Calgarians with assisted living and memory care services. Amenities and services, consistent with Amica Lions Gate, include chef prepared meals, large patios, an award winning interior, and a private dining room and theatre.
Amica Britannia’s location couldn’t be better. Sunterra Markets, Starbucks and other shops are across the street. Chinook Centre Regional Mall is blocks away and The Calgary Golf and Country Club entrance is 2 blocks away.
Opened in 2007 this signature and award winning mixed use project, developed by Milliken Developments, with financial partner Vulcan Inc. (a Paul Allen Company), 2200 has brought new energy to the Denny Triangle and South Lake Union neighborhoods on the northern edge of downtown Seattle.
2200 is located on a large 5-sided city block at the southeast corner of Westlake Avenue and Denny Way, just five blocks from Pacific Place and Westlake Center and adjacent to the Cornish College of the Arts. A world class, 48,000 square foot Whole Foods Market, 261 condominiums in three towers and a 160 room boutique Pan Pacific Hotel anchor the development. 2200 also includes a full-service Bank of America financial center and more than 20 additional neighborhood oriented retailers.
Avalon Meydenbauer is a collaboration between Avalon Bay Communities, Safeway and Milliken Developments. Completed in 2008, Avalon Meydenbauer is located at Bellevue Way and NE 4th Avenue in the heart of downtown Bellevue – an upscale metropolitan suburb just east of Seattle.
This urban, mixed-use concept consists of 360 luxury apartments atop a state of the art 55,000 square foot urban Lifestyle Safeway store and 20,000 square feet of street front retail space along Bellevue Way, NE 2nd Street and NE 4th Street.
Avalon Meydenbauer has added a sophisticated flavor to downtown Bellevue providing a unique opportunity for retailers to take advantage of the dramatic drawing power of Bellevue Square.
TriBeCa is a perfect integration of retail and residential in Queen Anne, one of Seattle’s oldest and most prestigious neighborhoods (the area is also home to Seattle’s Space Needle). TriBeCa is fifty-one stylish homes located atop an innovative, urban style Safeway grocery store and a collection of small shops. Completed in 2004, this unique development is Milliken Development’s second major development in Queen Anne, after The Marketplace at Queen Anne which was completed in 1995.
TriBeCa’s residential and retail parking and access are separated, making the two uses extremely complementary. With downtown Queen Anne immediately adjacent and Seattle Center two blocks away, TriBeCa is the ultimate in urban living.
The award-winning Harvard Market is located at East Pike and Broadway in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Seattle, immediately adjacent to Seattle’s downtown core. The Harvard Market serves a population of more than 44,000 living within one mile, making it truly urban.
The project includes a 46,000 square foot QFC grocery store, a 15,000 square foot Bartell Drug store and approximately 25 other shops, including Washington Mutual, GTE Wireless and Subway. Outdoor escalators and elevators link the two levels of retail. In addition, there are two residential penthouses on a third, separate level, which creates a truly mixed-use environment. Ample parking in both an underground and surface parking lot adds the final touch in a neighborhood where parking is at an absolute premium.
The Marketplace at Queen Anne
Developed in 1995, and located at Mercer Street and 1st Avenue North in lower Queen Anne, (the neighborhood that’s home to Seattle’s Space Needle), the Marketplace at Queen Anne provides the neighborhood with a variety of essential goods and services. The development spans a full city block, and is anchored by a 48,000 square foot Metropolitan Market. This high-end grocery is complemented by a 20,000 square foot Bartell Drug store and several additional neighborhood retailers. Outdoor escalators and elevators provide vertical integration of the two retail levels and the 229 parking spots, which are located in both an underground and surface lot.
