Maplewood Senior Living and Omega Healthcare Investors announced plans Thursday to bring Inspir Embassy Row, a new luxury senior housing high-rise, to the city of Washington, DC
Inspīr Embassy Row will be the second U.S. location under Maplewood’s Inspīr brand and the first property in Washington, DC for the operator. The Inspir brand, which was officially launched in 2017, is aimed at older adults living in major urban markets.
Maplewood enters the DC market with the acquisition of the historic Fairfax Embassy Row Hotel. The hotel will be “transformed and redesigned into Inspir Embassy Row, an ultra-luxury senior community that combines the best in housing, hospitality and health care,” according to a press release.
Inspīr Embassy Row will follow the model of Inspīr Carnegie Hill, which opened earlier this year in Manhattan, bringing a range of services and facilities to residents in independent living, assisted living, memory care and skilled nursing and rehabilitation.
The eight-story building will include 174 private units close to the DuPont Circle, the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, the Smithsonian Museum and other cultural landmarks.
“We have carefully considered identifying places where we can truly offer unique resident experiences that reflect the history, culture and vitality of the cities that surround them,” said Gregory D. Smith, President and CEO of Inspīr. “After opening our debut location in New York City, we explored other markets domestically and internationally where there was a void we could fill. Inspīr Embassy Row is an ideal property to add to our portfolio and will continue to fulfill our vision of creating luxury-level urban living with bold spaces, unique care, intelligent technology and immersive experiences. ”
