Last month, residents began to move into Acoya Shea, a senior living community offering independent, assisted living, and memory care apartments. The completion of this project comes at a crucial time to address the need for seniors housing, as the 75 and older community is expected to grow nearly 23 percent between now and 2027 in the Phoenix metropolitan area, according to market research.
The four-story 178,000-SF community has 147 apartments and several amenities including a bistro, salon, resort style swimming pool, various dining options, and a telemedicine room for virtual medical appointments. Acoya Shea is in a coveted area of Scottsdale, as residents will be minutes away from shops, restaurants, and golf courses.
“We are thrilled to welcome residents and their families to Acoya Shea,” said Daniel Raimer, our vice president of real estate development, senior living. “Our project team worked diligently to create a top-tier community that will meet the needs of a growing senior population with high-quality housing options, unmatched amenities, and proximity to desirable dining, retail, and entertainment in the City of Scottsdale.”
Acoya Shea was developed and built by Ryan, and designed by Ryan A+E, Inc. The completion of this project highlights our continued partnership with the community’s operator, Cogir, as we previously built Acoya Scottsdale at Troon and Acoya Mesa.
“ACOYA Shea’s unique four-story building design supports our age-in-place model, with residents able to remain in their apartment even as their needs change. They will experience a high-end community purposefully built to enhance resident lifestyle with premium amenities and signature activity programs,” said Dave Eskenazy, chief executive officer of Cogir Management USA. “ACOYA Shea is located right in the heart of Scottsdale, and residents will be able to enjoy the walkability of the community and the proximity to all that the area has to offer.”
We have built more than 60 senior living communities throughout the country and of that portfolio, developed 34.
