Ribbon cut at Grand Opening of Adriana Senior Apartments

The grand opening of The Adriana Senior Apartments, an affordable senior apartment building in Des Moines, was held on Wednesday, March 21, 2018.

Village Concepts, a third generation family-owned business helping seniors thrive in retirement and assisted living communities throughout Washington state, is excited to announce the grand opening of The Adriana its newest senior housing community.

The Adriana apartments are co-owned by a partnership of Village Concepts and Brian Scalabrine, a former NBA Boston Celtics player, Highline College alumnus and elder care advocate, as well as Andrew Langsford of the Bellevue-based Venture Real Estate Group.

For Scalabrine, the desire to support senior housing efforts stems from childhood, when he watched his grandparent’s struggle to afford senior housing. Baffled by the inexcusable treatment of the elderly, Scalabrine has been searching for a better solution for senior housing ever since. This $23 million project is named after Scalabrine’s two daughters, Eliana and Adria. The Adriana is his way of giving back and honoring the countless contributions wiser generations have made.

The opening of The Adriana will help fulfill the need for affordable housing for seniors and like other Village Concepts developments, will be community-focused. New residents will be able to stroll through the nearby Des Moines Marina, visit the public library or take classes at Highline Community College. Amenities include a social room, underground parking and a rooftop deck with stunning views of Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains. The Adriana will feature 119 units spanning six stories.
