NEW YORK–Maplewood Senior Living and Omega Healthcare Investors, Inc. (NYSE: OHI) introduce a new concept in senior living with the debut of Inspīr Carnegie Hill, the first community to be launched under Maplewood’s international brand. The new brand reflects the convergence of luxury residences, unparalleled hospitality, and world-class healthcare offered to seniors in urban markets.
The New York property, located on the Upper East Side of Manhattan at 1802 Second Avenue, is one of the first senior living communities in over a decade to be constructed from the ground up in Manhattan. The Inspīr developers carefully selected New York as the premiere location to introduce the brand based on the city’s rich history as a global leader in real estate.
“The Inspīr brand strives to elevate senior living in every sense,” said Gregory D. Smith, President & CEO of Inspīr, a Maplewood Senior Living brand. “We have taken careful consideration to create an environment that evokes urban luxury, yet caters to the specific needs of an older resident. Inspīr Carnegie Hill is the first step in transforming senior living in urban communities, and we are looking forward to expanding the brand to other cities around the world.”
Inspīr Carnegie Hill offers residents a lifestyle that meets and exceeds everything they’ve envisioned for their lives. With a variety of care options, including Assisted Living, Memory Care, and Enhanced Care,* Inspīr Carnegie Hill supports many different needs. An elite clinical team, including some of the very best physicians on-site, and close proximity to world-renowned hospitals such as, Lenox Hill Hospital, New York – Presbyterian Weill Cornell Medical Center and The Mount Sinai Hospital, ensure residents of Inspīr Carnegie Hill receive exceptional care if and when needed.
The masterful, elegant architecture of the 23-story, 212,000 square-foot LEED certified building features floor-to-ceiling windows, a 17th floor skypark and lounge, open-air terraces and enclosed gardens, sprawling views of the East River, a fully appointed salon and spa, a fitness center, and a luxurious pool. The new community offers world-class healthcare, farm-to-table dining, innovative wellness experiences, social events, and concierge services.
The concept of Inspīr Carnegie Hill, designed by Handel Architects, connects the outdoor environment with the indoor space to draw energy from the surrounding neighborhoods. The design elements are reinforced by nature and make ample use of organic materials, green spaces, and sunlight.
Every detail of Inspīr has been carefully considered to create living experiences that cater to every want and need, from the bold design concepts, premier concierge services, and an array of amenities, to the cutting-edge technology outfitted into each residence. Artificial Intelligence assistance such as voice-controlled lighting, fall-detection, and a voice-activated menu of services and activities give residents additional support, help increase engagement, and make it easier for families and loved ones to stay connected and involved on a daily basis.
The property also offers access to a wealth of cultural experiences including museums, theaters and some of the finest restaurants, offering residents a lifestyle that meets and exceeds everything they’ve envisioned for their lives.
