Town Square properties are taking shape
The City of Burien, in partnership with Merrill Gardens, Pillar Properties and Legacy Partners, are moving ahead with the remaining phases of Burien Town Square. Construction began on May 29 on the Merrill Gardens senior living community and is expected to be complete by late in the summer of 2016. Construction is also getting underway at the market rate apartments on the site. Legacy Partners and Pillar Properties are partnering on the development of both properties and Pillar Properties will manage the apartments upon completion.
Once finished, the two developments will complete the Town Square vision which already includes City Hall, Burien Library, Burien Town Square Condos, and Town Square Park. The two properties will bring intergenerational living to the downtown area with Merrill Gardens 126 independent, assisted living and memory care apartments alongside the 228 market-rate studio, one and two bedroom apartments. Both developments will include limited retail on the ground level as well as underground parking.
