In December, Senior Housing News announced their 2015 Senior Housing Design Awards Winners. The awards recognize designers and architects for innovation and excellence in 7 senior housing categories.
Aegis on Madison’s distinction stems not only from integrative, community-focused design–it boasts a sports den, movie theater, cocktail bar, open-air rooftop lounge, public coffeehouse, and mercantile boutique–but from its philosophical unwillingness to play down to residents and insistence on dignity and respect.
Located in Seattle’s busy Capitol Hill neighborhood, Aegis was a challenging, expensive proposition, but it’s already realizing its ROI after being open less than 2 years. Its 75 assisted living and 29 memory care units were 99 percent occupied within 13 months. Equity investors are 100 percent paid off, and the property is ready to be refinanced.
