The Art of Living – Tehaleh Offers Adult Community Designed for Active Lifestyles

Baby boomers now have a new option for healthy living: Trilogy at Tehaleh, Pierce County’s first adult active lifestyle community. The community is managed by Shea Homes as part of Tehaleh, the 4,200-acre planned mixed-used community in east Pierce County. Tehaleh’s age-restricted active lifestyle community of up to 500 homes opened in September 2012 with beautiful views of Mount Rainier and scenic trails throughout the neighborhood.

Shea Homes is nationally acclaimed for its communities designed specifically for baby boomers. Communities cater to residents seeking resort-style living. Homeowners will be members of the resort-style club featuring world-class, state-of-the-art fitness facilities and a diverse range of recreation and continuing education opportunities, all revolving around a lifestyle focused on wellness, exploration, learning and new friendships.

Homes feature an eco-friendly design, single-story layouts, natural lighting and Shea Homes’ trademarked innovation called Five Sided Architecture. This makes each home unique, which is important to the active lifestyle buyer, says Richard Obernesser, area vice president of Shea Homes. “We’re honored to be a part of Tehaleh and add to the creation of a sustainable, livable, beautiful and family-oriented community.”

Before opening, Trilogy asked for feedback from customers about home design and amenities, to ensure that the needs of active adult consumers in Washington were being met at Tehaleh. “We held design review sessions in order to refine the homes and amenities planned for the community, based on the market needs,” says Shauna Farmer of Shea Homes.

Shea Homes’ relationship with Tehaleh also draws upon experience in the local area with Jubilee in Lacey and Trilogy at Redmond Ridge in Redmond, as well as other active lifestyle communities in California, Florida, Arizona and Nevada.

“We’re excited that Tehaleh Trilogy community will have Shea Homes’ signature energy efficiency, smart design and outstanding community amenities,” said Bob McLeod, Chairman and CEO of Newland Communities, Tehaleh’s parent company. “Given Shea’s reputation and its success with other projects in Washington state, we know there is demand for this unique product in this market.”
