Simcoe Manor Redevelopment

Project Updates

On June 9, 2020, Simcoe County Council approved a plan to proceed with a significant redevelopment of Simcoe Manor and Village in Beeton into a leading long term care and seniors services campus, and further meet the needs of seniors in southern Simcoe County. The campus will provide additional long term care beds, supportive seniors housing units and programs, an expanded continuum of care and living options, and a wide range of community services for older adults in one convenient location, allowing residents to age in place and receive the services and support they need as their care requirements change.

The new community will be modelled on the highly successful, provincially recognized and awarded Georgian Village campus in Penetanguishene, opened by the County in 2013. The Georgian Village model provides a continuum of care, housing and program options for residents living in the facility as well as seniors living independently in the community.


Project Overview

Land acquisition

In April 2020, the County agreed to purchase a 20.6-acre property adjacent to the existing Simcoe Manor and Village facility for this future redevelopment and expansion, which will allow the facility to stay in Beeton and serve the southern part of the County

Units

The County anticipates that the redevelopment will result in a in a 160-bed long term care home, (additional 34 new beds), and more then 170 seniors housing units/homes (140+ new) for seniors with varying levels of care and support needs. Housing unit types include: Life Lease Suites, Market Rental Apartments, Retirement Living, Life Lease Garden Homes, Rental Town Homes, Affordable Housing for Seniors, Supportive Housing, Co-housing rentals

Amenities

The campus plans, covering 438,558 sq. ft., will include a range of amenities, potentially including: health/medical services, pharmacy, dental, restaurant/dining/cafe, retail, salon, exercise area, and outdoor recreation options, among other services and programs for residents and older adults living independently in the community. There is also opportunity to work with local sector partners on use of space and training options


Project Costs

Estimated total cost of $177M (includes $4M savings related to completing project all at once, instead of in phases).

There are opportunities for a significant portion of the costs to be covered via different funding envelopes, including through the Province, service partners, development charges and fundraising programs
