according to a report from City Comptroller Scott Stringer, New York City’s population is growing older and the number of residents over the age of 65 rose by a whopping 19.2 percent between 2005 and 2015, more than double the overall growth rate of the city. The city also expects an additional 300,000 seniors to reside in the five boroughs by 2040, bringing their total population 1.4 million. Per the report, the demographic shift may lie in our city’s robust transportation networks, diverse cultural offerings, and world-class medical establishments.
Recognizing the trend, several developers have proposed high-end residential options geared toward deep-pocketed seniors. Several months ago, Welltower Inc. and Hines announced the construction of an upscale, 15-story senior housing development at East 56th Street and Lexington Avenue in Midtown. Now Maplewood Senior Living has broken ground on an “amenity-laden” senior-housing facility at 1802 Second Avenue and 93rd Street.

Named Inspir Manhattan, the facility will rise 23-stories and be able to accommodate 255 residents. The Connecticut-based senior living company already has 13 facilities in suburban areas but this Upper East Side project will be their first urban development. Handel Architects is the designer of the building and according to a press release, there will be 15,000 square feet of amenity spaces that will include a farm-to-table restaurant, a 16th floor “sky park,” a swimming pool, fitness center, a library and many other common areas for residents to mingle.

The “sky park” will feature trees reaching 20 feet tall and views overlooking the East River. “It’s truly spectacular,” said Maplewood Senior Living CEO Gregory Smith. “There’s natural landscaping inside with trees and light and nature to make it feel more organic in its design.”
The $300 million project is expected to open by late spring or early summer in 2019. Smith said there is already demand for rooms.“It’s been overwhelming. We’ve done little to spread the word, but just filing for the permits has generated attention,” he said. “We’ve received calls from about 50 people and some want to be on a reservation list. There’s been no new supply in 20 years so there is pent-up demand.”
