Corunna has an exciting new residential development perfectly suited to adults 55+ who pursue a vibrant, carefree lifestyle and want amenities available for health care and easy living. Wellings of Corunna, located at 180 Bunker Avenue, is a four-storey, 132-unit rental community that features the Global Award-winning Wellings signature atrium, a unique design concept unlike anything you have seen before. It is owned by the Nautical Lands Group, a company that has a 25-year track record of designing, developing and building award-winning retirement and lifestyle communities for adults 55+, across Ontario.

The reason for the company’s winning ways is visible the moment you enter the building. The bright 8,000-square-foot four-storey atrium will leave you breathless. “When people see the atrium, they can’t believe it; it’s just magnificent and unexpected,” says Natalie Tommy, Nautical Lands Group VP of Marketing and Communications. Offering year-round access to a climate-controlled environment, the atrium is a welcoming space where you can meet friends, enjoy a meal or a game of pool or shuffle board, or just linger in the new informal bubble-windowed library, a convenient place where residents can expand their minds and their imaginations. A licensed bar and 24-hour concierge service are amenities residents appreciate. “The concierge service is there to answer general questions about the community at large, make arrangements for social engagements, picking up groceries and helping you with your ipad. They are at your service, just there to make your day that much better,” said Ms. Tommy, adding, “Wellings of Corunna is designed for independent adults. We have made every effort to design a community that inspires a balanced healthy lifestyle encouraging residents to live life to the fullest. Free from the daily maintenance of a large family home, residents are getting their first taste of the freedom that opens up when you make the choice to live maintenance free.”

Throughout the development, the attention to detail adds to the building’s warm, inviting atmosphere. All four stories are decorated with the stunning work of well-known, award-winning local photographer Glenn Ogilvie, revealing the beauty of the local community. “Glen’s beautiful photographs show a unique perspective of the hidden gems of Corunna and the surrounding Lambton County,” says Ms. Tommy.

Inside the one bedroom, bedroom plus den, or two-bedroom apartments, there are premium features such as full-sized kitchens with sleek stainless-steel appliances and lots of counter space. Residents can choose to make their own meals or dine in the Atrium restaurant each evening, where they will enjoy locally-sourced restaurant-caliber dinners prepared by Marquise Hospitality chefs in the Wellings of Corunna kitchens. All apartments have a walk-in shower as well as an in-suite washer and dryer, tucked neatly away behind doors.

Wellings of Corunna uses an “a la carte model” where residents choose and pay for only the services they want to use. Health care is provided by the VON, if and when it is requested, offering older adults the freedom to pursue their lives as they wish while taking advantage of a host of amenities they wouldn’t find anywhere else. “It’s up to you to create the environment you want to live in,” said Ms. Tommy. She noted that Wellings embraces all aspects of living well after age 55 within its communities. “We strive to create an ageless mindset and provide the amenities that make everyday living more convenient, so the focus is less on the chores and more on living life to the fullest.”

Residents enjoy freshly prepared dinners, membership in the fully equipped gym, access to the hairdresser, games rooms, a private dining room, and beautiful outdoor patios. And for healthy outdoor recreation, the scenic St. Clair River Trail provides the perfect backdrop for walking and casual cycling. “It’s one of the reasons we love living here; it’s all about living well at any age!” said Ms. Tommy.

Wellings of Corunna is a pet-friendly community that has its own fenced dog park, as well as a fully landscaped outdoor courtyard, barbecue area, and gardens. Outdoor parking is included in the monthly lease, and there is limited covered parking available, if you prefer it, for an additional fee. The list of premium amenities, services, and conveniences goes on and on.

All residents are encouraged to take part in the resident council, designed to bring the community to life as the residents truly want. The is a unique concept for a 100% rental community, delivering the best of both worlds; pride in where you are living and control of your expenses in a maintenance free environment.
