The Village at St. Elizabeth
Resort-style living comes to Hamilton
A great time was had by all at the official launch of The Village at St. Elizabeth Mills on June 30th, 2017. Perfect weather, good food, entertainment, and Canada Day celebrations enhanced the festivities.
This development has been getting a great deal of buzz due to its unique concept. The Village at St. Elizabeth Mills offers a resort-style alternative for those who are looking to scale down, but not stop living life to the fullest. Located at the corner of Rymal Road West and Garth Street in Hamilton, the 114 acres will be transformed into a themed resort lifestyle community, complete with an old town square, restaurants and shops. “Residents, especially baby boomers, want fun, excitement, socialization and the opportunity to enjoy life when they downsize,” says Tony DiFruscio, president of Zest Communities.
Designed by renowned Forrec Ltd., and developed by ZEST Communities, the 800 million-dollar redevelopment will set a new standard for the future of 55-plus living. The Village is expected to accommodate more than 3,000 residents, with the goal of turning what is currently a typical, adult-living complex into a themed lifestyle resort. It will be an ongoing project that will grow as the population grows, without any interruption for the existing residents.
Reservations are now being accepted for Upper Mill Pond – a mid-rise building consisting of 157 suites ranging in size from 733 to 1,328 square feet. Upper Mill Pond also features luxurious amenities that will include a library/lounge with a cafe/juice bar, as well as a health club with an indoor pool, a hot tub, an exercise room, a movement studio and a spa with treatment rooms. In addition, residents have access to a large events’ room with kitchen facilities, five guest suites and a gracious patio that overlooks a spectacular natural setting, which encompasses ponds and hiking trails.
The suites at Upper Mill Pond are available through the popular market-value life lease option, similar to the existing 570 garden homes at The Village. Under this program, residents have the right to occupy their suite, and use the common facilities for their lifetime. Security of tenure and flexibility, along with the opportunity for equity appreciation are among the key reasons for choosing life lease housing. “It’s a competitive alternative to condominiums, and there’s a noticeable sense of community in life lease developments that you don’t often find in other 55-plus housing options,” says Gary Zock, president of the consulting firm Zock & Associates.
