Aegis Living Greenwood

Bellevue, WA-based Aegis Living has opened its 35th senior living community, in the heart of Northwest Seattle. Aegis Living Greenwood offers assisted living, memory care and respite care.

To blend in with the neighborhood, the five-story building is styled after Tudor Revival architecture, a classic style most popular in the United States in the 1920s and 30s. The rooftop terrace is inspired by an English garden motif. Ankrom Moisan was the architecture firm, and Venture was the general contractor.

The building covers 89,000 square feet and has 96 units.

Alice Bouman, Aegis Living vice president of operations, told the McKnight’s Business Daily that there has been much interest in the new community. Almost 20 residents are expected to move in during the first 30 days, she said.

“Our dedicated life enrichment team has robust and tailored programming and amenities are far and wide — from daily movement to music, art and entertainment, on-site wellness services, and more,” she said. “We let the passions of our residents in each community steer us and we’re excited to see how this shapes Greenwood as new residents continue to move in.”

The first floor opens to a living room and resident gathering space. Across the hall is The Woodlands dining room.

An onsite cinema, The Miracle Theater, is named after the “Miracle Mile” business district that once thrived in the neighborhood. The Bog & Fen pub pays homage to the history of the local land. Swan’s salon and the barber shop, named Duckies after the popular “Duck Tail” haircut of the 1950s, also are located on the main floor.

“We get to know our neighbors, develop state-of-the art buildings that mirror the values, history and culture of the cities and neighborhoods where they reside, and ensure our residents have a true place to call home and live life to the fullest,” founder, CEO and Chairman Dwayne Clark said in a statement.

Aegis Living operates in Washington, California and Nevada and has several additional communities in development, including a community in the Eastlake neighborhood of Seattle opening next month.
