Dr. Joseph Wong, founder of the Yee Hong Centre for Geriatric Care, has announced a new, master- planned Yee Hong Garden Terrace Richmond Hill active lifestyle community.
Developed by High Street Richmond Hill Inc. and built by Highstar Building Inc., Yee Hong Garden Terrace Richmond Hill is located at Yonge Street north of 16th Ave. will be an upscale condo equivalent residence with outstanding luxury amenities and premium care, including recreational, health and support services on site, the developers say.
Dr. Wong, who oversees Yee Hong Centre for Geriatric Care, founded the organization in 1987 to provide culturally appropriate services to seniors of Chinese descent and other minority ethnic groups. In addition to housing, Yee Hong Centre provides programs and services including long-term care, community and medical services. Four long-term care centres currently operate in Scarborough, Markham and Mississauga.
“We have not had the opportunity to serve this community until now,” says Wong. “Yee Hong Garden Terrace Richmond Hill offers premium design, the most comprehensive services and state-of-the-art technology available for seniors to enjoy their lifestyle and live independently with all facilities geared for aging in place.”
Yee Hong Centre is accredited as Canada’s largest non-profit geriatric care centre serving more than 15,000 seniors annually.
High Street Richmond Hill Inc., the developer of Yee Hong Garden Terrace Richmond Hill, believes there is a need to develop more luxury, high-end condominiums for seniors on a hospitality model. “Yee Hong Garden Terrace Richmond Hill caters to individual design rather than a standard development format,” says president Alan Hirschfield. “There is no difference from the high-quality features and finishes you would see in a high-end condo.” High Street Richmond Hill has more than 20 years of extensive experience in the development industry and related financial sector, undertaking major residential, commercial and institutional projects.
The project has been designed by Turner Fleischer Architects with interior design by Johnson Chou Inc.
