Vancouver, Washington

12-story Senior Living Community to be constructed on Block 18 in the Vancouver Waterfront District. The new building will contain approximately 250 senior living units with support, lobby, and amenity spaces in 363,171 GSF with a mix of Independent Living, Assisted Living, and Memory Care. In addition, there will be 102,119 GSF below-grade vehicle parking with approximately 250 parking stalls. Parking is spread over two below-grade levels and served by a continuous valet service. The proposed parking count will accommodate a 1:1 parking ratio for Independent Living and sufficient parking for staff/visitors related to the Assisted Living and Memory Care units. The ground floor program for the senior living amenities will include restaurant uses with exterior seating that will have operational hours extending into the evening. Additionally, a retail component is proposed at the NE corner of the site to complement the transition from commercial to residential uses envisioned in the waterfront master plan. Amenities will include various dining options (formal dining, a casual bar, café, and wine lounge), a wellness center with fitness, yoga, an indoor pool, and massage treatment rooms. In addition, an ample rooftop activity space will be available to all residents.

The housing and service categories are as follows:

Independent Living: 182 residential units are proposed. The units will range from studio to 3 bedrooms. These units will be available for active seniors who operate independently.
