The Bluest Water Views from the
Greenest Community on the Lake
Take in sweeping views of Lake Union and the Space Needle from our extraordinary assisted living and memory care community, located in the very heart of the Emerald City. If you love the vibrancy of Seattle, you will feel right at home here in this urban oasis.
Aegis Living Lake Union is the world’s first assisted living community built to meet the rigorous sustainability building standards of a Living Building Challenge Petal Certification. It is designed to be emission-free and energy-efficient, and harnesses solar power and rainwater. Inspired by the history of rowing on Lake Union, the community’s architecture resembles a shell house design, and the exterior features a striking mural of the legendary rowing team from the University of Washington who won Gold in the 1936 Olympics.
Enjoy chef-prepared meals, innovative programming, and a wealth of on-site health and wellness amenities to relax and embrace life in your new home. We offer around-the-clock assistance tailored to each person’s specific needs, and warmly accommodate couples with differing care needs. Our community is powered by a big-hearted team providing thoughtful, personal care to every resident.

The World’s Greenest Assisted
Aegis Living Lake Union is participating in the International Future Living Institute’s Living Building Challenge, which defines itself as the world’s most ambitious and advanced performance standard for green, resilient, and healthy buildings. The community is registered for Living Building Challenge 3.1 Certification for Energy, Place, and Beauty, and is also participating in the City of Seattle’s Living Building Pilot Program.
Our state-of-the-art community is:
Energy-efficient. It reduces an average assisted living community’s energy draw by 25%, and offsets 105% of that draw with solar energy.
Water-reducing, harnessing rainwater and employing a progressive filtration system.
100% emission-free. No gas is being used in the building, no fossil fuels. Even our shuttle is electric!
Revolutionary. There is no assisted living community in the world like it.
Inspired by the natural beauty and spirit of innovation around us, we could not be prouder to bring this special building to the heart of Lake Union.
