Innovative Operators In All Aspects of 55+ Living

Founded in 1976, Essex is a full-service provider to the 55+ housing industry, offering expertise in design, development, construction, financing, marketing, property management, acquisitions, and repositionings. 

We have offered these services for nearly one billion dollars’ worth of communities totaling several thousand units, for both Essex-owned communities and via fee-for-service agreements with other ownership groups and organizations. Essex has developed and operated communities with independent living and assisted living units utilizing rental and buy-in financial models; and Essex has developed and operated communities with for-profit and not-for-profit ownership.

As a several-decade leader in the senior living industry, Essex’s foundation of success has been built upon our experience, focus on the 55+ market, proven processes, industry-respected leadership, and an unwavering dedication to provide comprehensive quality services to our business partners and the residents we serve.
