On March 29 Koelsch Communities, a family-owned and operated senior living provider, announced the hiring of Julie Luce, RN, to act as Executive Director for their upcoming $93 million development in Bellevue, Belle Harbour.

“I have a tremendous amount of respect for Koelsch Communities and couldn’t be happier to lead the team at Belle Harbour,” said Luce. “Everything that Koelsch does is personal and for the benefit of its residents, their families, health care providers and the community at-large.”

The site is 142,000 square feet and will offer over 150 apartments and suites and is expected to create 120 new jobs in the city of Bellevue.

“Belle Harbour is a beautiful community with premium amenities and a personalized care model that will set a new standard for senior living in Bellevue,” said Aaron Koelsch, President, and CEO of Koelsch Communities. “We are thrilled to welcome Julie Luce back to Koelsch and excited to see her develop a care-centered team that treats everyone with dignity, respect, dedication and professionalism.”
