A new community designed for active older adults has opened in Bellevue with

the launch of Crossroads Senior Living, operated by Sustainable Housing for Ageless

Generations, or SHAG. Located next door to the Crossroads Shopping Center, it seeks

to provide the newest generation of retirees a vibrant independent lifestyle while linking

them to opportunities in the greater area. The public is invited to Crossroads Senior

Living’s grand opening celebration, 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. Nov. 15 and 16, 1390 158 th Pl., NE


Crossroads Senior Living offers 185 one- and two-bedroom apartment homes

with full kitchens, spacious bathrooms, Northwest finishes and a contemporary style

appealing to the new generation of retirees. Common areas have an open-concept airy

layout with many windows bringing in abundant natural light. The six-floor structure

offers garage parking reserved for residents and has a commercial space.

Amenities include a fitness center with Precor and Nustep machines, free

weights and yoga props; a business hub with computer stations and laptop lounge; a

game room; a media lounge; and a community room with a kitchen, large-screen TV

and complimentary Wi-Fi. An exterior courtyard with P-Patch planters provides

gardening opportunities. The community is pet-friendly and has its own dog park.

“We are excited about bringing Bellevue more apartment home options for active

adults age 61 or better,” said SHAG Executive Director & CEO Jay Woolford. “We have

chosen the community’s location so residents can easily participate in life in the greater

area. Staying connected to people of all ages and continuing to pursue longtime

interests as well as new ones are central to healthy aging.”

A number of shopping, dining, entertainment and recreation venues are within

walking distance and a par-three golf course is located behind the community.

Crossroads Senior Living has a van for resident activities and an electric car-share

program. The community is located on three bus routes.

The two-day grand opening will include tours of Crossroads Senior Living,

entertainment and refreshments; admission to the event is free. For more information,
