We are so excited to announce the opening of two of our senior housing projects in Washington — Merrill Gardens at Burien, and Merrill Gardens at Auburn!
Located in downtown town center of Burien, Merrill Gardens at Burien reflects a blend of traditional main street characters and modern architectural elements that are designed in accordance to the design guidelines of Burien. This 166,320-square-foot community offers a total of 111 residential units including studio, one-, and two-bedroom units. The building features both formal and casual social spaces to encourage camaraderie among residents and promote a sense of community.
The interior of this community reflects classic main street characters, where details are rich with earthy accents, colors and textures. To create a more residential ambiance, soft lighting and furnishings with neutral colors are used throughout the amenity spaces. Large windows are also used to let the daylight comes through and fills the interior space with a soft, pleasing glow.
On the other hand, Merrill Gardens at Auburn, located in the heart of downtown Auburn, was created to reinterpret the traditional old town main street architecture with a contemporary twist. This project features a highly-modern layout, along with a bright and airy interior feel. With convenient access to the Sounder Train Station and a variety of local retails, restaurants and other area amenities, this community is designed to meet the expectations of seniors who seek a modern and independent lifestyle. This 169, 310-square-foot community offers a total 129 residential units with a mix of studio, one-, and two-bedroom units.
The dining room of this project features extensive glazing and floor-to-ceiling windows, which flood the interior space with natural light and create a breath of openness. The open modern layout of the communal area allow residents to decide whether to participate fully in group activities or from the periphery. Short walking distances in between amenity spaces also provide an ease of access to common areas, allowing less-mobile residents to easily venture out and join in.
Emulating modern hospitality interiors, each residential unit has ample space and a private bath with shower where residents can receive guests.

In addition to these two new communities, our apartment project in Burien, and senior housing project in Rockridge, California, are getting close to opening their doors.
