Maplewood Senior Living and Omega Healthcare Investors on Thursday announced plans to bring Inspīr Embassy Row, a new luxury senior living high-rise, to metropolitan Washington, D.C.

Inspīr Embassy Row will be the second U.S. location under Maplewood’s Inspīr brand and the first Washington, D.C., property for the operator. The Inspīr brand, officially launched in 2017, is geared toward older adults living in major urban markets.

Maplewood enters the D.C. market with the acquisition of the historic Fairfax Embassy Row hotel. The hotel will be “transformed and re-envisioned into Inspīr Embassy Row, an ultra-luxury senior living community that combines the best of residential, hospitality and healthcare,” 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 amenities for residents in independent living, assisted living, memory care and skilled nursing and rehabilitation. 

The eight-story building will include 174 private units close to DuPont Circle, the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, the Smithsonian Museum and other cultural landmarks.

“We have taken careful consideration to identify locations where we can truly offer exceptional resident experiences that are reflective of the history, culture and vibrancy 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 to create urban senior living on a luxury level, featuring bold spaces, exceptional care, intelligent technology and immersive experiences.”
