Sammamish Town Center will include Merrill Gardens senior living

Merrill Gardens Announces New Community in Sammamish, WA


Merrill Gardens has announced plans to develop a new senior living community that will be part of the Town Center in Sammamish, WA.  Our sister company Pillar Properties has partnered with Innovation Realty to develop, manage and operate phase one of the Sammamish Town Center.  

The Sammamish Town Center is located in the heart of downtown and will be a pedestrian friendly, mixed-use gathering place that offers a lively mix of restaurants and pubs, shops and boutiques, entertainment and services, and a variety of home choices including Merrill Gardens senior living.  The joint venture development will also include commercial space, parks and open space as well as new roads and other transit and infrastructure improvements.       

“The Sammamish Town Center is one of the most important projects in the Puget Sound region. The ability of the City of Sammamish to demonstrate that future growth can be managed in a way that enhances the lives of its citizens will be a model for other cities to follow,” said Matthew Samwick, operating manager of Innovation Realty Partners. “We were contacted by multiple builders/operators that wanted to come to Sammamish but we chose to work with the best in the businessPillar Properties and Merrill Gardens are leaders in developing modern, energetic, highly sought-after town centers that include senior housing communities.”

"This is an extraordinary opportunity in place making and we are thrilled to partner with Innovation Realty Partners to bring the Sammamish Town Center to life," said Billy Pettit, Pillar Properties president.  "For the past ten years, we have successfully developed town center projects that include senior housing in Kirkland, Seattle’s University District, Ballard, Auburn, Burien and a number of locations in California and we are so impressed with the foresight and vision the City of Sammamish and Innovation Realty Partners have shown in establishing this location."  

Once complete, the Merrill Gardens community in the Sammamish Town Center will offer 150 senior living apartments with options for independent living, assisted living and memory care.
