Experienced leaders create new concept for active seniors

The tried-and-true approach to senior living worked just fine for yesterday’s seniors. But you’ve changed. The world has changed. And experience tells us that this is the right time and the right place for a fresh approach to senior living that fits the way you want to live. That’s why we designed The Variel to be different.

Instead of a commercial or clinical style, it feels more like a boutique hotel. Instead of a traditional design, the aesthetic is clean and contemporary. The result is a retirement community that’s upscale and impressive, yet comfortable and livable.

You’ll also notice something uniquely inspiring about The Variel’s location in Warner Center. It’s vibrant. It’s full of opportunities for entertainment, dining and shopping, all just a short walk or drive away. And it’s going places, as evidenced by the Warner Center 2035 Plan.

When you look at all these characteristics, it probably feels like we created The Variel just for you. That’s because we did. And this is just the start. The community’s real personality will unfold as active neighbors move in, get involved and shape the future of your new home.
