Executives from EPOCH Senior Living and National Development joined with Lexington Select board chair Jill Hai and local residents on October 27th to celebrate the grand opening of Waterstone of Lexington.
Located at 55 Watertown St., Waterstone of Lexington is a luxury senior living community featuring independent and assisted living residences in an idyllic wooded setting overlooking the Belmont Country Club.
“We are excited to celebrate the Grand Opening of Waterstone of Lexington. It is truly a unique community offering a continuum of care campus with accommodations for the most active to those who need additional support,” said Laurence Gerber, president and CEO of Epoch Senior Living. “After almost four years from initial conceptualization to a completed project, we are very proud to bring luxury senior living to Lexington that is unmatched in the industry.’’
Ted Tye, managing partner, National Development, said the opening of Waterstone of Lexington represented a major achievement for National Development. “Waterstone of Lexington represents the best-in-class in the Boston area and a culmination of our 25 years of building senior communities,’’ said Tye. “We have provided a building that has incredible amenities and spacious well-designed apartments. The mid-century modern design is inspired by the architecture of Lexington. The wooded setting along Belmont Country Club is perfect for this new senior community.’’
Hai said, “We are excited that Waterstone brings to Lexington a new housing option for our seniors, addressing a need for a more diverse housing in town and a new way for long-time residents to downsize while remaining in our community. Lexington is also excited to welcome all of the new residents and we hope they will take full advantage of all our community has to offer, from our library to our community center and conservation lands and so much more.”
