From the moment you step into the lobby, you’ll notice the light beaming in through ample windows, as well as specialized lighting to add to our already inviting environment. Welcoming common areas attract friendly neighbors and visitors, while fostering meaningful connections that naturally create lots of laughter. Elegant artwork and tasteful quality furnishings adorn this jewel box of a community. The Waters Restaurant and Café add their own multi-sensory experience.

From location selection, hallway width, wall coverings and furniture placement, every detail at The Waters has been carefully planned with our residents and team members in mind. Our communities are highly desirable places to live and work because they promote wellbeing and balance sophisticated style with the warm ambiance and comforts of home.

Architecture with intent

When we developed The Waters on 50th, we started from a different mindset than the typical senior living community: We partnered with architects experienced in high-end hotel and luxury apartment design. Then we provided the research and real-life perspectives our architectural teams needed to create environments in which seniors thrive. Our commitment doesn’t end there: We always welcome and continually incorporate resident and team member feedback to enhance our living and working environments.

Design that delights the senses

Refined, classic surroundings with the ambiance and incredible comfort of home. At The Waters on 50th, we consider these essential elements of design. Our designers created inviting spaces for residents and their guests, cozy nooks for private moments, wellness spaces that invigorate and restaurants that are every bit as sumptuous as the cuisine they serve.

We carefully selected colors, fabrics, finishes and textures to create an authentic aesthetic that is both gracious and attractive, and reflective of our unique Southwest Minneapolis personality. We are proud to say we’re intentionally designed with you in mind.
