Williamsburg Retirement Residence: a fast-growing “Neighbourhood” in Burlington, ON


Toronto, Canada, 08-10-2015 -

The Association of Registered Interior Designers of Ontario (ARIDO) has honoured Toronto’s Newcombe Design Associates with an Award of Merit for the 12,500 m2, stand-alone, owner-operated, retirement residence, The Williamsburg Uptown, completed in May 2014 in Burlington, Ontario.


By developing 94 independent living suites and 23 assisted living suites, the owners sought to provide a much-needed option for an aging population, in a facility that would go beyond the typical household model to establish a new standard of excellence in the market. Newcombe Design Associates’ goal was to ensure that every aspect of the interiors would elevate the residents’ quality of life and contribute to a strong sense of community.


Judy Newcombe, Principal, says that, in addition to being recognized by ARIDO, two key operational statistics demonstrate the success of her firm’s approach:

1) Where the standard expectation is fill up within 2 years, The Williamsburg was 70% full after only 9 months, and,

2) There are higher than expected numbers of couples and younger move-ins, both of which have positive bottom line impact in both the short and long term.


“Our attention to detail was vitally important in bringing the owners’ vision to life, creating the hospitality, warmth, and upscale comfort that they hoped to provide their residents,” said Newcombe, “For example, one of the key objectives was to foster residents’ independence and sense of control over their own lives. The owner knew that offering a variety of venues where residents can dine at their leisure would contribute to such feelings. We knew that by creating a variety of dining styles with the range of seating options not typically used in retirement residences, but in high-end resorts or hotels, we could enhance them further.”


Another Newcombe goal was to overcome what is often a stumbling block for seniors who have left their old neighbourhood for an unfamiliar way of living: a tendency towards isolation. Their planning and design established an in-building neighbourhood, with easy to maneuver, simple to understand navigation encouraging and facilitating social interaction. In fact, Williamsburg has proven to be a genuine and fast-growing community, with the residents actively enjoying every amenity.
