GIG HARBOR, Wash. — Emerald Communities, a Seattle-based operator, has started construction of Heron’s Key, a 275-unit continuing care retirement community (CCRC) in Gig Harbor, approximately 40 miles southwest of Seattle.

Being built on 18 acres of woodlands in the Harbor Hill, Heron’s Key is more than 70 percent pre-leased.

The first construction phase will include 194 apartment and cottage homes, 36 assisted living suites and 45 private skilled nursing rooms. Amenities built during this phase include multiple dining venues, a salon and barber shop, massage and day spa, nature walking trails and pond, fitness center, and onsite health center.

This will be the first CCRC in the county, and the largest project ever built in Gig Harbor, according to Emerald Communities. The first phase is slated to open in early 2017.
