Jack Eisenberger, Brandon Frankfort and Philippe Krivicky from Bloom Retirement Community and the mayor and councillors of City of Oshawa gathered on November 20 to officially launch the construction of Bloom, a vibrant new retirement community at 1224 Coldstream Drive in Oshawa.

“It is my distinct pleasure to congratulate you on the milestone groundbreaking of the Bloom Retirement Community and thank you for investing in the City of Oshawa. We welcome Bloom into our city and recognize you and your employees as an integral part of our community”, said Mr. Dan Carter, Mayor of Oshawa represented by Mr. Bob Chapman, councillor of the City of Oshawa.

“We are investing $75 million in this exciting new project, which benefits from an exceptional location close to many services in addition to building a next generation senior community with ‘’a la carte’’ services. We are giving our best on this journey and working to make a big difference in the life of our seniors. We are proud to invest and serve Oshawa’s senior residents’’, said Mr. Philippe Krivicky, Chief Construction and Development Officer of Cogir Real Estate.

When the retirement community opens in the fall of 2021, residents will be able to choose from 201 units on seven floors (studios, one bedroom and two-bedroom apartments). The new retirement community is being built to provide a fresh, fulfilling living environment with apartments for independent and semi-autonomous seniors. In the vicinity, and on the premises, residents will enjoy many amenities and recreational activities: restaurant for dining, café bistro for socializing, plus a spa, gym, pool and walking paths for physical activity. Nearby, the city offers an array of services including a library, a recreational centre, retail outlets and a supermarket. In addition, professional care will be provided to less autonomous residents. Blossom in this dynamic environment! For more information about this retirement community, click here.
