Heron’s Key, an amenity-rich Life Plan senior living community by Emerald Communities, is underway with wood framing for its independent apartment homes and steel construction for the community’s clubhouse, which will include restaurant-style dining venues, fitness center, salon and spa, creative arts studio and library.

Being built on 18 acres of woodlands in the Harbor Hill neighborhood of Gig Harbor, Heron’s Key is more than 70 percent reserved.

The first phase will include 194 apartment and cottage homes, 36 assisted living suites and 45 skilled nursing private rooms. In addition, multiple dining venues, a salon and barber shop, massage and day spa, nature walking trails and pond, fitness center and on-site health center will be developed.

A true Life Care Community, the health center will provide residents unlimited access to a continuum of health care, offering the assurance of assisted living, memory care, rehabilitative services or skilled nursing for as long as needed..

The first Life Care community in Pierce County, Heron’s Key is expected to open in early 2017.

Heron’s Key is the largest project ever to be built in Gig Harbor.
