The Comox Valley’s newest retirement residence, Riverside Senior Living, is locally owned and operated by an experienced residential development and hospitality management team.

Managing partners Stan Sprenger and Rick Browning bring extensive experience from projects in BC, and across Canada and the US.

Since 2006, they have owned and operated the Best Western Westerly Hotel in downtown Courtenay.

Stan has more than 20 years of hospitality development and management experience. Prior to launching his own private company in 2006, he was president of Intrawest vacations and lodging operations, overseeing 10 North American resorts.

Rick brings a background in developing and managing a luxury senior’s housing complex in California, as well as major retail, hospitality and residential projects in BC over the past 30 years, with his company Western Management.

Together with their management team, Rick and Stan are working to develop a unique concept in retirement living for the Comox Valley. Riverside Senior Living will welcome its first residents in the spring of 2018. Residents can choose from one bedroom or studio suites, equipped with kitchenettes. Amenities will include a spa and fitness facilities, a swimming pool, billiards lounge and social areas.
