P.B. Bell, in partnership with Cadence Senior Living, will begin construction on Inspira Arrowhead, a senior housing community within the Aspera mixed-use community in Glendale, Ariz. The project marks P.B.’s return to senior housing. The community is slated for completion in January 2019, with reservations scheduled to begin in mid-2018. 

“Demographic trends point to a growing senior market, which makes our return to the senior housing sector even more timely,” R. Chapin Bell, CEO of P.B. Bell, told Multi-Housing News. “We have already established roots within the Aspera community with our Velaire property, and we appreciate the opportunity to offer a multi-generational living experience there with the addition of Inspira Arrowhead.”

The 165-unit Inspira Arrowhead will feature 123 independent and assisted living apartments and 42 designed for residents in need of memory care. Floorplans will offer studio to two-bedroom residences ranging from 367 to 1,076 square feet. Interior features will include quartz countertops, open kitchen and dining area concepts, plank-style flooring and stainless steel appliances. Amenities will include:

  • ramped swimming pool
  • barbecue area
  • on-site dog park
  • salon and massage rooms
  • bistro
  • fire pit
  • theater room
  • activity room

“We are moving into a new generation of people who are using this type of housing,” said Eric Gruber, co-founder of Cadence Senior Living. “With larger common areas and a neighborhood-style set up in the memory care unit, this project is being designed with an active lifestyle in mind for those who would like all levels of care in one community setting.”

The master-planned Aspera will feature retail, dining and fitness options, as well as healthcare with Banner Healthcare medical offices being built within the development. Treasure House, a first-of-its-kind residential facility for young adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities, co-founded by former Arizona Cardinal Kurt Warner and his wife, will also be located within Aspera, once completed. 

This summer, P.B. Bell also broke ground on Arista at Ocotillo, resort-style apartments in the Ocotillo master-planned community in Chandler, Ariz.
