Senior Living Community Coming to Timberland

Rembold Companies, a local real estate development firm, is working with Ankrom Moisan Architects to create a senior housing community providing approximately 150 studio, one and two bedroom apartments, on a lot in the Timberland development north of Barnes Road in Cedar Mill. (Beaverton annexed this former Teufel property in 2004.)

The proposal was unveiled at a Neighborhood Meeting on January 7th. Mike Miller, of MGH Associates, a land planning and engineering firm, introduced Kali Bader of Rembold, who described the company's experience building similar projects in the Portland area.


Then Chris Dalengas of Ankrom Moisan presented his firm's vision for the community. “We looked at the site, and realized that we had a chance to offer an attractive view to the south for our residents. We are required by the current master plan to position a portion of the development along NW 118th, so we created a design that would open the building to that south view, and create a generous courtyard space facing south.”

The four-story building, still in the very early stages of design, will comprise approximately 161,500 square feet. The site slopes from north to south, and the development is designed to step down the hillside. The Memory Care section will include 16 apartments; approximately 41 apartments will offer Assisted Living; and approximately 89 apartments will provide space for Independent Living.

Current Timberland residents attending the meeting welcomed the 115 parking spaces proposed for the site, expressing their concern with scarce parking spaces already available for themselves and their guests.

Dalengas noted that Rembold has “an agreement to purchase the land from Polygon, but has not finalized the deal at this point.” They would like to start building this summer, but the timeline is dependent on permits and other factors.

The location, directly across NW 118th from the now-developing commercial center, should make this an attractive place for seniors and their families. One of the neighbors noted that they would support improvements at the intersection of NW Cedar Falls and 118th, with crosswalks and possibly a signal to improve safety for all residents who want to walk to the shopping area. If Beaverton requires this, the developer believed it would be a good idea, also.
