Former NBA Player and South Sound Standout Brian Scalabrine and Village Concepts are Bringing The Adriana to Des Moines This Fall

Recently , construction broke ground on The Adriana, the newest in the Village Concepts series of community-focused retirement and assisted living communities. The $23 million project is scheduled to break ground this September in Des Moines, Washington.

The Adriana will be co-owned by Brian Scalabrine, a former NBA Boston Celtics player, Highline College student and elder care advocate. The project is named after his two daughters, Elliana and Adria. Scalabrine and Village Concepts share a common mission; to provide outstanding housing for seniors where they can feel comfortable, valued, and safe. At Village Concepts, a family business, this philosophy has been passed down to Chief Executive Officer Stuart Brown, the third in a line of strong advocates for the elderly and those in need of assisted living facilities.

Last week, Village Concepts donated $32,000 to the Des Moines Legacy Foundation for the Des Moines/Normandy Park senior center's programs and services.

"We're honored to become a part of the fabric of the growing Des Moines community," said Stuart Brown, Village Concepts CEO. "We're excited to offer the Adriana as the premier community retirement location in the Des Moines area."

The opening of The Adriana will help fulfill the need for affordable housing for seniors and contribute to the revitalization goals of Des Moines' marina district. Residents of the new assisted living facility will be able to stroll through the nearby Saltwater State Park, visit the public library or take classes at Highline Community College. The Adriana will feature 119 units spanning across five stories and is slated to open fall of 2016.
