United Group of Cos., through borrower UW Senior LLC, has received $35 million in financing for The Arbella at Bramble Hill, a 123-unit senior housing project in Worcester, Mass. JLL Capital Markets secured the construction loan from Washington Trust, on behalf of the borrower.

The construction of the three-building development is set to be completed by the beginning of 2025, with the upcoming community catering to active seniors over the age of 55.

Located at 757 Salisbury St., the development will be within walking distance of Kinney Woods and Holbrook Forest, and near the intersection of interstates 290 and 190, which provide direct access to downtown Boston.
