TUKWILA, Wash. — Alliance Residential Co., one of the largest multifamily developers and managers in the country, has broken ground on Marvelle at Southcenter, an active adult community in the Seattle suburb of Tukwila.
The 166-unit community marks the launch of Alliance’s active adult brand, Marvelle. The developer noted that baby boomer demand has been strong at its standard multifamily communities, leading it to start building specifically age-restricted properties.
Besides the age restrictions, the Marvelle community will also offer 13,000 square feet of indoor amenity space, more than double the common space at its standard apartment complexes. It is also a transit-oriented development and located near the Southcenter area’s many restaurants, retail shops and medical facilities.
Urbal Architecture designed the seven-story, 235,828-square-foot property. Apartments range from 500 square feet to more than 1,200 square feet. The community is scheduled to open in fall 2019.
