New construction begins on Emerald Heights Assisted Living expansion project
Emerald Heights, a LifePlan Community in Redmond, Wash., has officially broke ground on its new $55 million assisted living project. This 67,555-square-foot extension will bring 54 one-bedroom apartments to assisted living along with a new dining space, activity rooms, outdoor patio and a centralized courtyard.
“The new assisted living plan is custom designed to meet the needs of all current and future Emerald Heights residents,” said Grant Linacre, executive director at Emerald Heights. “With the additional living and shared spaces, we’ll be able to serve more residents and expand our community offerings that are meant to be enjoyed by the entire Emerald Heights community.”
The design of the assisted living units is led by Dean Kelly of the architecture firm Rice Fergus Miller, who recently managed the Emerald Heights new 42 Independent Living Courtyard Apartment building, as well as the community’s earlier expansion projects, which were completed in 2014.
