Merrill Gardens at Burien will have 126 independent, assisted living and memory care apartments in the center of Burien Town Square.  Merrill Gardens sister company, Pillar Properties, is developing 228 market-rate studio, one and two bedroom apartments at the site in partnership with Legacy Partners.

“This unique location provides for a true inter-generational living experience in a fantastic urban location with easy access to downtown Seattle.   Its going to be a great place for people of all ages,” said Bill Pettit, Merrill Gardens president.
