The Springs Living Names Tim Watson as Executive Director of New Happy Valley Community

HAPPY VALLEY, OR—Tim Watson has been appointed the executive director of The Springs at Happy Valley, a 210-unit senior living community with a modern farmhouse aesthetic that is set to open this autumn in Happy Valley, Oregon. As executive director, Watson will assemble the community team, hiring based on shared values that drive quality outcomes. He will direct all aspects of community operations, including resident experience, financial performance and culture building for the team.

“In addition to his proven leadership skills, Tim’s gracious personality and genuine warmth will help build relationships with residents and staff, which is critical to establishing our values-based culture as this community opens,” said Brenda Connelly, president of The Springs Living.

Watson most recently served as senior executive director of Dial Senior Living, where he oversaw all operations at the senior living community in Boulder, Colorado. Before establishing a career in the senior living profession, Watson served as director of choral activities at Morningside College in Sioux City, Iowa, for 15 years—overseeing budgets, curriculum and strategic vision for the department. He also served as president of the Iowa Choral Directors Association. Watson has a Master of Arts from the University of South Dakota and a Bachelor of Arts from Luther College in Decorah, Iowa.

Situated on a 6.95 acre site just 10 miles southeast of Portland, The Springs at Happy Valley was designed to meet the standards of the Fitwel Certification from the Center for Active Design—it’s the first senior living community to do so from the ground up. This certification validates that the community design optimizes health and wellness for staff and residents. The Springs at Happy Valley will offer independent living, assisted living and memory care services, featuring many high-end amenities, including an indoor pool and a movie theater. With a prime location at the corner of SE 172nd Ave. and Sunnyside Rd. in Happy Valley, Oregon, the community is conveniently located next to a variety of new shops and restaurants.

Anthology Senior Living Expanding to Washington State

DENVER, CO—Anthology Senior Living is excited to announce the development of its first independent living-focused senior living community in Edmonds, Washington. The community includes a total of 127 independent living residences, available in studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom configurations. Anthology is rapidly expanding across the United States—this project marks the sixth senior housing development that Anthology has started in the past 12 months.

Anthology of Edmonds, located in the established and affluent coastal town of Edmonds, Washington, will exclusively offer Anthology’s signature independent senior living. The 162,872 square foot six-story community will feature a modern and contemporary design, complete with high-quality finishes and underground parking.

The on-site amenities are designed to promote an engaging, active and social lifestyle and will include a salon and barbershop, multiple dining venues to enjoy gourmet meals, a fitness center, a theater, a central courtyard with barbecue grills and a bar/bistro. The community will also feature a sixth-floor terrace that opens from the theater.

“We’re proud to expand and bring this incredible new lifestyle option to seniors in the Seattle area—one that not only celebrates their social energy, but also their intellectual spirit, all in a beautiful and engaging atmosphere,” said Michael Berman, president of Anthology Senior Living.

Anthology of Edmonds will offer older adults a maintenance-free lifestyle coupled with a dynamic calendar of daily activities and events, an expansive variety of gourmet options offered by in-house chefs and sophisticated accommodations. Independent living at Anthology helps seniors continue their life story and feel confident in their next chapters of life.

Anthology Senior Living has partnered with Harrison Street (one of the leading investment management firms exclusively focused on alternative real assets) once again to develop Anthology of Edmonds. Anthology has worked closely with Harrison Street in the past to develop some of their most recent communities.

According to a recent report by the U.S. Census Bureau, almost 15% of the Snohomish County population has already reached age 65 (or older)—and that percentage will continue to climb as baby boomers age. This community will provide more options and amenities, as well as meet the changing desires of the newest generation of seniors.

Anthology of Edmonds, located at 21200 72nd Ave. West, is expected to open late 2023.

Located on 13 acres at the south entrance to Sun City Georgetown, The Hacienda at Georgetown will offer an unparalleled lifestyle for sophisticated seniors that includes engaging programming, extraordinary design, integrated indoor-outdoor spaces, and world-class culinary offerings created by celebrated chef Stephan Pyles.

Often referred to as the “founding father of Southwestern Cuisine,” Chef Stephan Pyles will bring his signature New Texas Cuisine to The Hacienda at Georgetown’s four dining venues, including a restaurant and bar open to the public. This restaurant will be the region’s first fine-dining establishment located in a senior living community and once open is expected to be one of the area’s most in-demand dining destinations. In addition to the new fine-dining restaurant, Chef Pyles will define the overall direction for each of the property’s other three dining venues, including the development of concepts, menus, presentations and kitchen design.  Chef Pyles will also host a series of special events including cooking demonstrations and wine dinners at the new community.

“Food brings us together as nothing else can, shaping our memories and empowering our communities,” said Chef Stephan Pyles. “Food truly transcends all boundaries and feeds our lifelong need to discover, which is a vital element in a long and healthy life. I’m especially looking forward to being a part of the property’s innovative community restaurant, which will be a welcome addition to the city.

Chef Pyles will further enhance the daily lives of our residents and create an impactful relationship between our property and the Georgetown community.”

A fifth-generation Texan with a career spanning four decades, Pyles has opened 23 restaurants in six cities over the past 32 years and remains to this day one of Texas’ most successful and influential chefs. Most notably, Pyles is the first chef from the Southwest to win a James Beard Award for Best Chef and was the first Texan inducted into Who’s Who of Food and Beverage in America.

He is a four-time cookbook author and has been host of an Emmy-award winning PBS Television series.

Bon Appetit has also recognized him for his lasting impact on Texas’ culinary scene and named him Chef of the Year in 2006.

The Hacienda at Georgetown is being developed through a strategic partnership between Watermark Retirement Communities, MedCore Partners, a Dallas-based healthcare and medical real estate group and The National Realty Group, a Houston-based full-service commercial and industrial real estate company.
