Clarendale Clayton Opens Doors to New Luxury Senior Residences  

ST. LOUIS (Oct. 26, 2021) --- Clarendale Clayton has officially announced the opening of its new luxury senior residences for those looking to take advantage of living in a scenic, urban community.

“From our comprehensive approach to wellness, to our unparalleled community amenities, Clarendale Clayton offers a worry-free lifestyle for St. Louis seniors looking for the best in senior living,” said Ryan McHugh, executive director, Clarendale Clayton. “We’re very proud and thankful to everyone, especially local officials, who worked with us on this amazing development. Residents of the community will enjoy every amenity that seniors want and deserve, along with a vibrant social life encouraged by an extraordinary calendar of events, activities and outings with local partners.”

Rising 13 floors high in the heart of Clayton with scenic views, the new Clarendale Clayton will offer 281 luxury senior residences including 195 independent living apartments with one, two and three-bedrooms, 66 assisted living and 20 memory care apartments. The community will be managed by Life Care Services, An LCS Company – which was recently ranked highest in customer satisfaction among Independent Senior Living Communities in the J.D. Power 2020 U.S Senior Living Satisfaction Study for the second year in a row.

The $120 million development by Ryan Companies is located at the corner of Clayton and Hanley Rd. – formerly home to a Schnucks grocery store for more than half a century.

“Thank you to the many individuals involved in the development and construction of Clarendale Clayton,” said Dave Erickson, vice president of real estate at Ryan Companies.  “This new place to live in Clayton is impressive and we look forward to seeing residents thrive here.”  

“This corner of Clayton is a gateway to our city and is very important to us,” said Michelle Harris, Mayor, City of Clayton. “Dozens of proposals came across our desk but when Ryan Companies brought Clarendale Clayton to us we knew it was perfect – perfect for our community, perfect for our residents and it’s a beautiful building.”

Residents at Clarendale Clayton can expect five-star ambiance with boutique hotel-style doorman and concierge services, complimentary transportation within a 10-mile radius, three dining options from casual to elegant dining, a full-service salon and spa, and an unwavering commitment to engaging mind, body and spirit.

Clarendale Clayton’s active living approach provides a variety of signature programming for total health and wellness, including local partnerships with the Oasis Institute, The J and Osher Lifelong Learning Institute through Washington University.

“When I passed my 90th birthday, the universe started giving me signals that maybe I should give up the house,” said Miriam Raskin, resident, Clarendale Clayton. “One day in the mail, I received a promotional piece about the Clarendale Clayton, and when I opened it up, I said that looks different than everything I’ve seen before. The social aspect of the community is attractive, and I’m excited to be around all of the residents.”  

Clarendale Clayton’s memory care community offers peace of mind for both residents and families with a proven approach to life-affirming activities. Residents are welcome to utilize the Memory Care Courtyard developed by renowned ecotherapist and master landscape architect Jack Carman. The Courtyard provides a therapeutic landscape made up of plants and structures to urge interaction and appropriate stimulation of the senses.

Senior living communities managed by Life Care Services also benefit from EverSafe 360°, which was specifically designed to ensure the safety of all residents, staff and visitors to the community with a multifaceted approach to cleaning, disinfecting, and sanitizing the living and work environment.

Other amenities include a fitness class studio, cardio and weight training studio, a theatre, art studio, bistro and connectivity to the greater Clayton community.
