Wesley at Tehaleh
Wesley at Tehaleh just celebrated its first anniversary! This community is an ideal destination for people to bring their families together and enjoy life outside the city in the relaxing foothills of Mt. Rainier.
“It was a beautiful day and the food was great. Three friends of mine attended the event, and they liked seeing the apartments,” said Diane Olson, volunteer greeter and resident of Wesley at Tehaleh.
Virginia Meadows, Wesley at Tehaleh resident, enjoyed the celebration with her son and daughter-in-law. “They loved the ice cream and music. It was just a gorgeous day,” she said.

At Wesley’s flagship community, construction on Phase III of the multi-phase, multi-year redevelopment has officially begun! Nearly all of the final new Cottage accommodations are now reserved, and more details will soon be shared for the Centre Point apartments on the fifth floor of the new wing.
Residents were treated to the first construction update of this phase from Anthony Mizen, the project’s construction superintendent from Walsh Construction. Anthony has been overseeing the project since the beginning. He shared some interesting facts at the meeting.
