According to the United States
Census Bureau, more than 46 million adults in the U.S. are older than 65. This
generation, commonly referred to as baby boomers, is increasing the need for
long-term care and senior housing across the country.
The Murano Senior Living tower features
243 residential units, including those for
independent living, assisted living and
Transforming Age’s Olympic Tower will
connect to its existing Skyline Tower to
complete this continuing care retirement
As baby boomers age, navigating
how to live independently is, or will be, one of their biggest challenges.
Community living that offers amenities and opportunities for social connection,
has become a desirable option.
With the recent completion of the
Murano Senior Living tower and the groundbreaking of the Olympic Tower
project, PCL’s Seattle office is helping to build modern towers that offer
active, older adults beautiful places to call home. Both facilities offer an
array of amenities, breathtaking views of downtown Seattle and Puget Sound, and
proximity to multiple hospitals and medical centers.
“These projects service an important housing
need in our community, with the quality amenities and care our seniors
deserve,” said Aaron Wiehe, vice president and district manager of the Seattle
Columbia Pacific Advisors’ Murano
Senior Living tower is 24 stories and features 243 residential units, including
independent living, assisted living and memory care units. Operated by Leisure
Care, residents can rent
luxury studios, one- and two-bedroom units, or even penthouses in this
Murano’s amenity spaces create a
complete senior living community by encouraging residents to stay active and socialize. The facility
features a café, multiple bars and restaurants, art studio, card room, gaming
area, tech lounge, wellness center with both physical fitness and brain fitness
classes, barber shop, salon, gym, surround sound theater, auditorium and
multiple outdoor terraces. Concierge services, from in-room dining to happy
hours and coordinated events, provide added luxuries to residents.
Rising 21 stories above the city upon
completion, the Olympic Tower will house 77 one- and two-bedroom homes as well
as penthouse apartments. Connected to the existing Skyline Tower, this new
living space, complete with a performing arts center, full-service spa and
multiple bars, cafés, and lounges, will create a spacious community for
residents to thrive in Seattle’s urban core. Both towers are owned and operated
by Transforming Age, a non-profit senior living and care organization.
As a continuing care retirement community, it
was built on the premise that residents can comfortably age within their
community, utilizing the current health center and accessing memory support,
skilled nursing, or assisted living care as needed.
