Centrally located between Baltimore, Maryland and Washington, DC is Brightview Columbia. Hailed as one of the safest communities in the country, Columbia, Maryland offers a convenient, secure and amenity-rich option for residents.
This new construction of a 191,036 GSF Assisted Living Community consists of a 4 story + basement, 170 unit Assisted Living / Alzheimer’s Memory Care / and Independent Living Community. As part of the new construction, and in accordance with Howard County, Maryland development standards, the team is simultaneously restoring an 18th-Century Manor House adjacent to the property.
