Pike Motorworks Takes Home NAIOP Night of the Stars Award

November 16, 2016 – Pike Motorworks, a Weber Thompson project, earned the NAIOP Night of the Stars award for Mixed-Use Development of the Year.

Pike Motorworks is a 243-unit mixed-use residential project in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood that was developed by The Wolff Company. A large driver for this urban infill project was pulling the lobby, office use, and retail into the center of the site, and running cross-block connectors into a central courtyard. The project is split into a north building, which features hip, auto-inspired interiors, and a south building, which contains modern, high-end finishes and appliances. Weber Thompson provided architecture and interior design services on the project. Exxel Pacific was the contractor, Hewitt was the landscape architect, and Graham Baba was the consulting/retail architect.

Winning Night of the Stars projects were judged by a panel of real estate professionals and were evaluated based on impact on the community, market adaptability, ingenuity and local contributions. NAIOP Washington State is a trade association for developers, owners and investors in the industrial, office and related commercial real estate industries. The chapter, founded in 1976, is the fifth-largest and one of the fastest growing chapters nationally.

Other team members for Pike Motorworks include: Patrinely Group; Gibraltar; Magnusson Klemencic Associates; Bush, Roed & Hitchings, Inc; Coughlin Porter Lundeen; Hart Crowser; Ecotope; The Transpo Group; Travis Fitzmaurice; Ground Support; SSA Acoustics; O’Brien & Co; Morrison Hershfield; and Turnstyle Studio.

Groundbreaking Development Planned for Popular Carson Intersection

CARSON, California – October 27, 2016 – The Wolff Company has announced plans to develop a groundbreaking mixed-use multifamily project at a prominent intersection in downtown Carson called the Union South Bay. The proposed 4- and 5-story wrap-style buildings will include 357 residential units as well as more than 30,000 square feet of retail space fronting Carson St. and Avalon Blvd.

“We’re happy to welcome The Wolff Company to Carson, and believe the Union South Bay development will be a vibrant addition to our city,” said Carson Mayor Albert Robles. “The population of Carson is growing and the addition of this premium rental housing will help to meet the area’s demand.”

The development will complement the Southern California lifestyle with planned amenities that include a fitness center, pool and spa, community lounge, rooftop courtyard, dog park and bike areas. Located in a prime spot directly across from Carson City Hall and rear the Carson Civic Center and South Bay Pavilion Mall, the Union South Bay will offer easy access to the 405 and 110 freeways for convenient commutes in and around Los Angeles County.

“Residents at the Union South Bay will have a front row seat to the best of the South Bay area,” said Nate Carlson, Vice President of Development for The Wolff Company. “Its location across from city landmarks and less than a mile from Carson’s dining, shopping and entertainment centers are unparalleled.”

The Union South Bay is scheduled to begin pre-leasing in late 2018. The Wolff Company will be joining the City of Carson in a groundbreaking ceremony for the development on November 3rd.  Members of the media and the local community are invited to join in the ceremony and learn more about the property.

Springs Area Seeing a Boom in Assisted-Living Development

If housing construction in the Colorado Springs area is heating up, then the local senior housing market is at its boiling point.

An explosion of development of all types of senior housing will add more than 800 living units to the Colorado Springs area market by the end of next year. The 10 projects – including independent living apartments with meal service, assisted-living units and nursing home beds – are either open, under construction or seeking planning approval from local government agencies.

The latest round of development follows a burst of construction that started in late 2011 and added more than 500 units in eight projects, mostly assisted-living centers, by early 2015.

“We are seeing a lot of new development and there are still properties that recently opened that have not been fully absorbed by the market,” said Elizabeth Borden, principal of The Highland Group, a Boulder-based consulting firm for the senior housing industry who has worked with developers of several local projects. “There are properties that are still offering concessions” to new residents.

That push to fill empty units is a sign that the latest wave of development may result in even more rental and other incentives to attract tenants.

The occupancy rate for senior housing in the Colorado Springs area drifted lower during the previous building boom from 91.7 percent in 2012 to 88.3 percent last year, according to quarterly surveys by the National Investment Center for the Seniors Housing & Care Industry in Annapolis, Md. Annual rent growth during the same period deteriorated from 2.1 percent in 2012 to 1.5 percent last year, according to the center’s surveys. Both occupancy and rent growth were somewhat weaker than the average for cities of similar size, the surveys showed.

The previous round of construction was triggered in part by pent-up demand that developed during the recession and its aftermath, when no new projects were built for three years.

Many developers of the earlier round of facilities had planned their projects before the recession and couldn’t land financing during the downturn.

The latest round is driven more by surging population growth of elderly adults – the population 75 years and older in El Paso County is forecast to grow by 62.5 percent to more than 50,000 by 2025, according to the State Demography Office.

The first new project, the Healthcare Resort of Colorado Springs, opened this month in northwest Colorado Springs targeted largely at older adults with Medicare coverage that need short-term rehabilitation – usually two to four weeks – after a hospital stay for surgery, a heart attack or other medical condition.

The $22 million complex includes 97 beds for patients who need 24-hour nursing care and 28 assisted-living units for patients who need help preparing meals, bathing, dressing, keeping track of medication and other personal care tasks.

“I’m very glad we are at the forefront of this new wave of construction. I think it could get difficult for those projects opening near the end of the boom,” said Royal Jensen, CEO of Healthcare Resort of Colorado Springs.

Unlike the last wave of construction that mostly added assisted-living units to the local market, the 10 projects are not targeted at just one type of senior housing.

Four complexes include apartment units with meal service – called independent living – or a mix of retirement housing designed to allow residents to move to a higher level of care as needed. That is similar to the national trend, driven primarily by plentiful financing for assisted-living centers with more money becoming available for independent living projects, Borden said.

“There is a belief that Colorado is a strong, growing market for senior housing. There are a lot of national and regional companies starting to do business in Colorado. That is fueled by the fact that there is a greater supply of equity going into senior housing than ever before,” Borden said. “One cautionary note: There is a lot of excitement about the aging of the baby boomers, but the oldest boomers are just turning 70 this year. The average age of assisted-living residents is in the mid-80s. We are talking 10-15 years before boomers are ready for assisted living.”

One example of developers expanding into senior housing is The Wolff Co., a Scottsdale, Ariz.-based firm that is building a 162-unit independent living complex near the First & Main shopping center along Powers Boulevard.

“There’s an underserved market of renters aged 55-plus, looking for a lock-and-leave lifestyle where we are building,” said Mike Milhaupt, a longtime senior housing industry executive who is now vice president of senior housing for Wolff. “These developments will fill a gap in the market and set a new benchmark for senior living rental communities.” The Colorado Springs complex will include on-site dining facilities, indoor swimming pools, theaters, fitness centers, lounges and offer a variety of social activities for residents, he said.

Akron, Ohio-based Cedarwood Development Inc. is expanding into senior housing with The Lodge, a 79-bed facility that will have 22 beds set aside for residents with Alzheimer’s disease, dementia or other memory impairments.

Laura Hester, Cedarwood’s vice president of senior housing, said the company’s market analysis shows “strong demand for our product and supports what we are bringing in,” drawing residents from the Black Forest, Briargate, Springs Ranch, Stetson Hills and Wolf Ranch areas.

Demand is strong throughout Colorado for independent living units, Borden said, but she is worried the latest round of development could lead to overbuilding in two markets – facilities offering 24-hour nursing care (also called skilled nursing beds), and memory care centers. The latter require secure entrances and outdoor areas so residents cannot leave the facility and become lost, and are the most difficult facilities to fill, she said.

Traditional nursing homes, which offer 24-hour nursing care, have the lowest occupancy rate of any type of senior housing and are expected to lose patients to short-term rehabilitation facilities like the Healthcare Resort of Colorado Springs and three other facilities built in the past nine years, Borden said.

The four facilities have 250 beds, enough to house nearly three-fourths of the area residents covered by Medicare who received 24-hour nursing care for short-term rehabilitation at the end of last year, she said.

One facility might not be built. Dallas-based Senior Quality Lifestyles Corp., which had sought approval late last year for a 256-uni development in northwest Colorado Springs, told Mike Schultz of the Colorado Springs Planning and Development Department that the company “needed to go back to the board of directors to make sure they wanted to continue pursuing the site” after making concessions on building height to address neighborhood concerns.

A spokeswoman for the company, which operates six retirement complexes in Indiana and Texas, declined to comment.

Larry Smith, president of Bethesda Senior Living Communities, said the Colorado Springs-based nonprofit is building an assisted-living center in Monument in response to that city’s booming population.

Bethesda also owns land in the Briargate area where it had considered building a larger retirement complex, but instead has put the 5.9-acre site on the market.

Two other longtime senior housing operators aren’t worried about an overbuilt market.

Janet Burns, CEO of Sunny Vista Senior Living, which is building a 66-bed assisted-living center on its campus on Cache La Poudre Street, said the assisted-living center will give Sunny Vista a campus for the first time where residents can “age in place” and move between levels of care as needed.

“I believe these projects are geographically far enough apart that they will be serving different markets,” Burns said. “We are a nonprofit with long ties to the community with a campus that is centrally located and the market for assisted living is just exploding with the aging of the baby boomers.”

Aaron Koelsch, CEO of Koelsch Senior Communities, said the Olympia, Wash.-based company is building a 72-bed memory care center near the Springs Ranch Golf Course along with 12 cottages for family members as part of its expansion into the memory care market that also includes four other facilities in the Chicago and Seattle areas.

“Just about everywhere we go the senior real estate market is very busy. There is always a bit of risk because this is an inexact science,” Koelsch said. “We are going to locations where the demand is steep and the demand is robust in Colorado Springs for memory care services. When we did our market study earlier this year, every facility had an occupancy rate well in the 90s.”

Groundbreaking New Development to Change the Face of Downtown Las Vegas Living

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., January 19, 2016 – The Wolff Company has announced a partnership with 901 Fremont, LLC, an affiliate of Downtown Project, with plans to develop a groundbreaking mixed-use multifamily project on 1.3 acres in Downtown Las Vegas (DTLV). The proposed 5-story, podium-style building, currently being dubbed Fremont & 9th, will include 231 units as well as 15,000 square feet of retail space along Fremont Street. It will be the first of its kind in the emerging Fremont East area, which is being revitalized with the help of many investments and initiatives by Downtown Project and its founder, Tony Hsieh, the CEO of Zappos.com, Inc.

“We’re happy to welcome The Wolff Company to downtown, and believe this development is an important addition to Fremont Street because there currently isn’t anything like it available in the area,” said Hsieh. “Increasing the residential density is key to making the Fremont East area a truly vibrant place to live, work, and play. We’re excited to see this development for those who want to live downtown.”

Located at the intersection of 9th and Fremont Streets, the property will be within walking distance to dozens of restaurants, bars, and other retailers and small businesses in the urban DTLV district. It will be adjacent to the largest dog park in DTLV, The Hydrant Club, a block from Downtown Container Park, and a 5-minute walk to the Fremont Street Experience. Residents will also have convenient access to U.S. Highway 95 and Interstate 15, and will be just minutes from the Las Vegas Strip and the UNLV campus.

“The population of Downtown Las Vegas is growing and evolving, yet there is a lack of rental housing options to meet the area’s demand,” said Nate Carlson, Vice President of Development for The Wolff Company. “Fremont & 9th will change the face of DTLV living, offering residents a stylish home with unprecedented access to entertainment, retail and hospitality.”

Fremont & 9th is being designed to take full advantage of its location with a suite of amenities that promote a true “live, work, play” lifestyle. Urban art and style will be found throughout the property from its hip resident lounge and resort-style pool to the premium unit finishes such as quartz countertops, under-mounted sinks, custom tile backsplashes and stainless steel appliances. The Korte Company, based in Las Vegas, has been selected as the general contractor. Construction on Fremont & 9th is scheduled to start in the next 30 days.

Redhook Brewpub Opening at Pike Motorworks in Fall 2016

SEATTLE, WASH. – November 30, 2015 – The granddaddy of Seattle craft beer — Redhook Brewery — will celebrate its 35th anniversary as the Emerald City’s original craft brewery in 2016 with a new brewpub in Capitol Hill. The brewpub will be located in the distinctive Pike Motorworks building at 714 E. Pike Street.

From its humble beginnings in a Ballard transmission shop to its beloved Trolleyman brewpub in a former Fremont trolley barn, Redhook newest brewpub will be located in a former auto dealership on Capitol Hill’s historic auto-row, continuing the brewery’s reputation for transforming historic Seattle sites into popular destinations for beer lovers.  The new brewpub will reflect the spirit of Redhook’s beginnings and create a unique opportunity to experience some Redhook classics such as ESB and Ballard Bitter, alongside innovative small-batch brews, some of which will be available exclusively at the new brewpub location.

“I’m looking forward to my first ESB in the new brewpub on Capitol Hill,” said Paul Shipman, co-founder of Redhook Ale Brewery. “This new location is a perfect opportunity for Redhook to brew great-tasting, local craft beer in one of Seattle’s most vibrant neighborhoods and to help celebrate Redhook’s 35th anniversary since it first introduced Seattle to craft beer in 1981.”

The Capitol Hill brewpub will feature a 10-barrel brewery where Redhook brewers will brew beer exclusively for the pub and the City of Seattle. Construction is in process, and the new brewpub is scheduled to open in the fall of 2016, just in time to celebrate Redhook’s 35th anniversary.

“The Redhook brewing team is thrilled to celebrate our 35th anniversary with a new brewpub in the heart of the Emerald City,” said Nick Crandall, lead innovation brewer for Redhook Brewery. “I can’t wait to begin brewing new, creative and experimental beers at the new Seattle brewery. We’re also looking forward to the opportunity to connect with the community and continue partnering with great local businesses like Caffe Vita. Creating distinctive collaborative brews such as Double Black Stout ties all the goodness of Seattle together. This is what makes being a craft brewer so great – working with great people who really love what they do every day.”

 

About Redhook Ale Brewery

Redhook was born out of the energy and spirit of the early 1980s in the heart of Seattle. While the term didn’t exist at the time, Redhook became one of America’s first “craft” breweries with its focus on creating “better beers” for beer lovers. From a modest start in a former transmission shop in the Seattle neighborhood of Ballard, to its Trolleyman brewpub in a Fremont trolley barn, to its current breweries in Woodinville, Wash. and Portsmouth, N.H., Redhook has become one of America’s most recognized craft breweries. In celebration of Redhook’s 35th anniversary, 2016 will see Seattle’s original craft brewery increase its commitment to the Emerald City with a new brewpub in the Capitol Hill neighborhood.

While Redhook has “grown up” over the past 30 years, one thing has never changed — Redhook is still brewing great beers like ESB, Long Hammer IPA, Pale Ale and a variety of seasonal beers. Most importantly, Redhook has fun doing it. Redhook beers are available on draught and in bottles and cans around the country. For more information, visit www.redhook.com.

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Nov. 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — The Wolff Company announced plans to develop several senior living apartment communities in the first quarter of 2016. The first six developments are expected to break ground over the next 90-120 days and will be located in Issaquah, Lacey and Spokane, WA; Henderson, NV; Oxnard, CA; and Colorado Springs, CO.

These projects represent the first of a large investment anticipated to be made in the independent and assisted living market by the Scottsdale-based private equity firm and will continue to broaden their portfolio of market-leading communities nationwide. Wolff intends to invest $300-$400 million annually in the development of independent and assisted living communities in addition to purchasing existing communities.

“There’s an underserved market of renters aged 55+ looking for a lock-and-leave lifestyle where we are building,” said Mike Milhaupt, Vice President of Senior Housing for The Wolff Company. “These developments will fill a gap in the market and set a new benchmark for senior living rental communities.”

The amenity-rich properties will offer on-site dining options, a variety of social activities and top-of-the-line facilities including fitness/aerobics centers, indoor swimming pools (certain locations), theaters, art studios, lounges and full commercial kitchens. They are strategically located in desirable communities across the Western United States.
