Jake Quigley named executive director at Waterstone at the Circle
EPOCH Senior Living has named Jake Quigley executive director of Waterstone at the Circle, a luxury independent living community that will open in early 2018 at 375 Chestnut Hill Ave. Prior to joining Waterstone at the Circle, Quigley served as executive director for senior living communities in the Boston, Brookline and Newton areas. He also spent five years in the Navy and holds two Master of Science degrees in Community Development and Gerontology: Long-Term Care Administration from Kansas State University.
"I’m excited to bring the Waterstone lifestyle to Cleveland Circle and offer area seniors luxury independent living in an urban setting," Quigley said.
The 92-apartment Waterstone at the Circle independent living community for active adults is being developed by National Development of Newton Lower Falls and it will be managed and operated by EPOCH Senior Living of Waltham. It is part of a larger development that includes a 162-room AC Marriott hotel, retail and dining. Located at the corner of Beacon Street and Chestnut Hill Avenue, the development straddles the Brookline and Boston boundaries.
The Waterstone at the Circle independent living apartments will be some of the most luxurious in New England and an extension of the Waterstone brand, developed by EPOCH Senior Living when it opened Waterstone at Wellesley in 2012. Amenities will include a fitness and aquatic center, restaurant-style dining room, theater and underground parking. Services will include housekeeping and transportation, and residents will have access to a robust cultural and recreational activities program, personal training, social events and more. All apartments are available for a monthly rental fee.
The historical Cleveland Circle site housed the New Circle Theatre, which delivered live performances from 1940 through 1965 before being redeveloped as the Circle Cinema and various restaurants. The landmark metal "Circle" sign will be incorporated into the design. The Boston Redevelopment Authority and the Brookline Zoning Board of Appeals approved the development in 2014.
