Tackling the Challenge of Senior Living Communities

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
memory care.

Transforming Age’s Olympic Tower will
connect to its existing Skyline Tower to
complete this continuing care retirement
community. ​

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 office.


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 pet-friendly building.

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.  

Olympic Tower

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.
