About Us


Boutique Senior Living Residence in the Laurelhurst neighborhood of North East Seattle.

Built in 2021, Empress Senior Living is a new Assisted Living and Memory Care community located in the Laurelhurst neighborhood of North East Seattle. The architectural design pays homage to the classic neighborhood masonry commercial buildings common in Seattle neighborhoods with housing above the store. The goal was to achieve a familiar scale and character that would blend into the surrounding residential neighborhood by the careful selection of the building colors and materials. Locating the Bistro, Dining Room, and many of the active uses of the community at street level, Empress will make it's own contribution to the pedestrian realm in an already vibrant neighborhood shopping district. 

Empress Senior Living is managed by a partnership between Empress Senior Living LLC of Seattle, WA and Elegance Living LLC of Baltimore, MD. The partnership combines to create the best of both worlds in senior housing management, with all of the economies of scale of a large corporation but with the responsiveness of local leadership, delivering a nimble boutique senior living experience unmatched in the marketplace. 

We invite you to consider making Empress Senior Living your new home!


“To My Extended Family, The Staff of Empress Senior Living,

It is rare to find the kind of care, concern and love that has been part of my Mother’s life since she has been a resident at an Empress Senior Living community.

I wish to thank all of you for your dedication to the care of others. What you exhibit is a rare gift and I thank you for sharing that. With Gratitude ”
