Design Awards for our Development Team


We are honored to have three of our development communities recognized for best design by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) in the 2017 Best Assisted Living Community Awards.  Two newly opened communities and one community under construction are finalists in this competition that recognizes exceptional design in senior living.  The finalists are:

Merrill Gardens at Ballard in Seattle, Washington (below) opened in 2016.

The community design features lots of light wood and big windows.

A big shout out to our partners at Urbal Architecture for their outstanding design work on all three of these communities.  The winners will be announced early next year and our fingers are crossed!
