Worth the Wait: The Hawthorn is Now Open

We’re pleased to announce that the much-anticipated Hawthorn ‘Independent Plus’ building is now open! The very first residents moved in on Wednesday, August 3rd, and we have back-to-back move-ins scheduled in the upcoming weeks.

It’s been a two-year wait—but now you can come in person and see what all the hype is about. There are 93 beautiful suites in the building—and they’re going fast—so book your appointment today to see just what the best in retirement living looks like. Of course, if you’re a spur-of-the-moment type, drop by the Presentation Centre Monday – Friday (8:30am – 4:30pm) and now on Saturdays from 11am to 4pm, to stroll over to The Hawthorn and take a look around—you won’t be disappointed.

Everything in one place—just for you!

The Hawthorn is, without a doubt, a unique place to call home—and for all the right reasons. Everything you need is right here, and that means you have more time to do the things you love to do. This beautiful, modern, elegantly appointed building has it all—luxurious living and location all rolled into one. It’s a great place to revitalize your retirement.

The Hawthorn’s ground floor boasts a host of desirable amenities. With the choice of three places to dine, you can find just what you want based on your mood and appetite. Going somewhere nice or in need of a quick trim? There’s a fully equipped hair salon located in the Clearwater Spa on the main floor of The Hawthorn. What could be more convenient?

Enjoy a favourite mystery in the sixth-floor Cascade Reading Lounge—a quiet place to read with a world-class view—or book the Cheam Meeting Room for a private get-together with friends and family. Each of these beautiful spaces includes an outdoor terrace too.

If the outdoors is your happy place, the walkability of Elim Village’s location is unbeatable. Right nearby, you can enjoy the Vedder River Trail, by foot or by bike, or stroll into town to do a bit of shopping if you wish—your time is your own.
