The desirable Stadium district of Tacoma has a strong sense of community, Merrill Gardens Wright Park is located across the street from popular local establishments such as Rhein Haus, Orange Theory, Starbucks, Mudbay Pets, and Stadium Thriftway. It is also just a few blocks away from the the South Sound's premier Medical facilities: Kaiser Permanente, MultiCare's Tacoma General Hospital, and CHI Franciscan's St. Joseph's Hospital & Medical Center. The location also offers amazing views of Commencement Bay, Mt. Rainier, and gorgeous green spaces as it is adjacent to Wright Park.

The Tacoma market, and specifically the Stadium District, is currently under-served for senior living and the project will support significant demand in the region.
