Construction Progresses at ‘The Carnegie at Washingtonian’ Next to Life Time in Gaithersburg

Construction continues to progress at The Carnegie at Washingtonian, a Kisco Senior Living Center, that will feature a seven-story complex with 302 one and two bedroom floorpans for independent living and memory care residences next to Life Time in Gaithersburg.

The groundbreaking of The Carnegie at Washingtonian Center was last October, but the work has been a lot more visible with the addition of the cranes a few months back. Situated on 8.5 acres beside RIO Lakefront at Washingtonian Center, The Carnegie is set to welcome residents in the spring of 2024.

“The Carnegie will be one of our signature communities and we are proud to introduce the Kisco lifestyle to the city of Gaithersburg,” said Andy Kohlberg, president and CEO of Kisco Senior Living. “Kisco follows the simple philosophy of putting our residents first. Early on, we adopted best-in-class standards from the hospitality industry to create a five-star experience for our residents. We’re excited to bring this unique lifestyle experience founded on our principles that promote the health and wellbeing of residents.”

For over 30 years, Kisco Senior Living has specialized in owning, developing and managing five-star, full-service, integrated senior living communities that provide exemplary service in safe, secure and friendly environments. With 20 communities across the country, Kisco is committed to a standard of excellence that raises the bar in senior living, including Forbes Travel Guide Star hospitality certification.

The Carnegie is named for the rich heritage of culture and philanthropy associated with Andrew Carnegie. He is responsible for the construction and donation of approximately 2,500 public libraries around the world. The Carnegie Endowment for International Peace and Carnegie Institution of Science are in nearby Washington D.C. In addition, the renowned Carnegie Hall has set the international standard for musical excellence.

“One of Kisco’s signature features is The Art of Living Well programming which addresses six dimensions of wellness. Providing intellectual and educational opportunities for residents personifies The Carnegie name,” said Kohlberg. “We want to empower residents to pursue their passion and purpose, surrounded by culture, art, and education. It’s all about providing a maintenance-free lifestyle and allowing them to enjoy their lives with peace of mind.”

The Carnegie at Washingtonian Center will feature premium amenities including chef-prepared meals in a choice of multiple indoor and al fresco dining venues; an indoor heated, salt-water pool; state-of-the art fitness center; wellness spa; yoga studio; and access to health care on site. Additional lifestyle amenities include a lecture hall for ongoing local educational programming; computer learning center; curated art gallery; cooking demonstration kitchen; and an outdoor landscaped park with a trail leading to Malcolm King Park.

In partnership with Welltower, Kisco plans to open a Discovery Center at Downtown Crown in spring 2022 to showcase the selection of floorplans and elegant interior design of The Carnegie at Washingtonian Center. The floorplan options will range in size from one bedroom, one bath (837 square feet) to two bedrooms, two baths with a den (1,487 square feet) and a club level living option that includes concierge and valet services.

“This is one of the most exciting projects for us to work on with our valued partners at Kisco Senior Living,” said Nikhil Chaudhri, senior vice president, co-head of US investments at Welltower. “The Carnegie at Washingtonian Center will be a premier community where seniors will have access to first class amenities and care in a truly dynamic and inspirational environment.”
