Since 2010 Milliken Development’s sole focus has been the creation and expansion of senior living communities. Milliken, in partnership with Amica Senior Lifestyles (wholly owned by the Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan), provides boutique, very high quality – both in terms of the building environment and the care offered – assisted living and memory care residences for seniors. Future senior communities may include independent living for seniors.
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 opened in Calgary in December, 2013. Amica Lions Gate, previously Maison Senior Living, West Vancouver, opened in November, 2016. Several more seniors’ developments are in the planning stages, including an expansion of Amica Lions Gate and a new community in the Oak Bay neighbourhood of BC. We look forward to bringing our considerable development experience to create best in class seniors’ communities in selected affluent markets in Western Canada.
Prior to 2010 Milliken Development’s business focus was the creation of unique, inclusive, full city block sized urban mixed use communities in central Seattle, Washington and downtown Bellevue, Washington. We completed five such award winning urban developments at a total cost of $420 million.
