Maplewood Senior Living Expands Inspīr Brand to Washington, DC




Inspῑr Embassy Row is the Second Location Under Maplewood’s Inspῑr Brand, and the First Washington D.C. Property in the Senior Living Provider’s Portfolio

WASHINGTON DC – September 9, 2021 – Maplewood Senior Living and Omega Healthcare Investors, Inc. (NYSE: OHI), today announced plans to expand the Inspīr brand to the Washington D.C. market with the acquisition of The Fairfax Embassy Row. The historic 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. Living in an Inspīr building is akin to staying at a luxurious hotel replete with award-winning chefs, spa-style wellness and A-list cultural events.  Inspῑr Embassy Row will be the second location under Maplewood’s Inspīr brand, and the first Washington D.C. property in the company's portfolio.

"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 & CEO of Inspīr, a Maplewood Senior Living brand. “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.”

Rising eight stories in one of Washington D.C.’s most sought after neighborhoods, the 173,932-square-foot senior living residence will feature 174 luxurious private apartments, a variety of unique and beautifully designed amenity spaces and offer assisted living and memory care focused on an independent lifestyle. The property is located in the cultural heart of D.C. - less than two blocks from Dupont Circle Metro, and minutes away from The White House, Pennsylvania Avenue, The Smithsonian Museum, The Philip Collection, and The Anderson House. Other incredible D.C. sites and museums also nearby include The National Mall, Vietnam Memorial, Washington Monument, Connecticut Avenue’s world-famous shopping, The Kennedy Center of Performing Arts, and much more.
