Already located in 28 Garden State communities, Sunrise Senior Living has opened the doors to its 29th location in New Jersey, the most recent in Livingston.
Located at 290 South Orange Ave., Sunrise of Livingston is an 86,000-square-foot, three-story property by Lantz-Boggio Architects, built in partnership with Wohlsen Construction Co. It will house more than 120 residents and provide assisted living and memory care, according to a March 16 announcement.
Designed in the American Colonial style, the new Essex County community features a multi-functional bistro area, lounge, entertainment room with theater accommodations, activity room, common and private dining rooms, a secure rooftop garden, a beauty salon, an indoor garden and an emergency response system.
The site also earned the International WELL Building Institute’s WELL Health-Safety Rating, which is a “third-party verified rating for all new and existing building and facility types focusing on operational policies, maintenance protocols, occupant engagement and emergency plans,” according to the institute’s website. The rating system was put into place during COVID-19 but applies long term.
“Sunrise has served the people of New Jersey for many years and our team at Sunrise of Livingston looks forward to building on that legacy by providing the best possible experience to our residents,” Sunrise of Livingston Executive Director Toni Daniels said in a statement. “We look forward to becoming an engaged member of the local community and helping families support their loved ones in this vibrant space.”
Situated on 3.3 acres, Sunrise of Livingston is located near the intersection of Route 510 and 607 and is about 40 minutes from New York City.
In February 2022, Sunrise Senior Living opened another center at 23 Bloomfield Ave. in Mountain Lakes.d
