WASHINGTON, D.C. and WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP, N.J. (Oct. 21, 2021)Capitol Seniors Housing, a leading senior living investment and development firm, has broken ground and started construction on its latest development of The Chelsea at Washington Township, an assisted living and memory care community in Washington Township, Bergen County, New Jersey. The 76,700-square-foot, two-story community for adults requiring assisted living and memory care levels of assistance will offer 85 residential units.

The community site is located on historic Pascack Road, just steps from the quaint township’s Schlegel Lake, Senior Park, and community center. A short commute to New York City, the community’s placement also puts The Chelsea at Washington Township’s future residents within minutes of a wide variety of retail shopping and restaurants in the Washington Town Center shopping center.

“We’re excited to break ground on this top-quality senior living community in Washington Township, a community with great history where many want to remain close to their families for the remainder of their lives,” said Joe McElwee, Principal, Capitol Seniors Housing. “We are very thankful to the community and local leaders who have worked with us on this amazing project. We are most appreciative of the immediate neighborhood who worked so hard with us to come up with a beautiful site plan. Future residents and visitors of The Chelsea at Washington Township will appreciate the community’s exclusive hotel-like amenities that seniors and their families desire, along with a vibrant social life encouraged by a thoughtful calendar of events, activities and outings.”

As Capitol Seniors Housing’s latest development, The Chelsea at Washington Township will feature a variety of one-and two-bedroom luxury residences with many amenities thoughtfully designed for northeastern New Jersey’s senior adults desiring a full continuum of high-quality services and care. The community’s amenities will include a bistro, sports bar, theater, multi-purpose room, club room, private dining room, and courtyards designed specifically for both assisted living and memory care residents.
