After Complete Renovation, Senior Living Community Opens Offering Distinction and Elegance for Seniors


KIRKLAND, WA – Cogir of Kirkland, a premier assisted living and independent living community nestled in the sought-after Lakeview neighborhood and boasting lake and skyline views, is celebrating their Grand Opening with two events in June. Mayor Kelli Curtis will join senior Cogir executives for a ribbon cutting for VIPs and industry partners on Thursday, June 20, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. The general public is invited to a second, larger celebration on Saturday, June 22, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. 


Cogir is celebrating its opening in style during the two events, showing off significant renovations that the community has completed under new management. The upgrades include modernized living spaces, state-of-the-art amenities, and beautifully conceived common areas designed to foster a vibrant and active community. Planned so that caregivers have a straight line of sight and residents have easy access to the center of the community where they will participate in cognitively stimulating activities, no detail has been overlooked. The completed renovations resulted in a comfortable, elegant environment that feels like home – all while providing best-in-class care.  The community comprises 76 apartments in a variety of sizes ranging from 375 to 745 square feet. Common areas include a bistro cafe, movie theater, game room, activities room, library and salon/barbershop. 

The VIP celebration on June 20 will feature wine tastings from award-winning St. Hilaire Cellars and entertainment will be provided by acclaimed Brazilian guitarist Marco de Carvalho.

Renowned local artist Irina Johnson will showcase her work at both the VIP and public events, adding a touch of cultural flair to the celebrations. Guests at both events will be treated to a diverse array of food options including a special tasting menu curated by Cogir of Kirkland’s Executive Chef, Ruben Guerrero.

At the Grand Opening Celebration on June 22,  illustrious electric cellist Gretchen Yanover will perform. Adult children and their parents will also have the opportunity to tour the boutique sized community, and see for themselves how easy it is to navigate for residents. Both peer interaction and a sense of independence and capability are able to be cultivated  in the beautiful spaces that feel like home to residents.

“We are thrilled to celebrate our Grand Opening with our partners and the general public from all over Eastside and Greater Seattle,” said Lynn Glenn, Executive Director of Cogir of Kirkland. “We can’t wait for people to visit our beautiful community, where every detail matters!”
