ALBUQUERQUE — West Linn, Ore.-based Insight Senior Living has broken ground on Amaran Senior Living, an assisted living and memory care community in Albuquerque. The project team includes Paaru Builders, Montessori One Academy and Dekker/Perich/Sabatini.

Located at 9100 Holly Ave. NE, the 81,000-square-foot facility will feature 56 assisted living units and 16 memory care apartments. Units will include natural light, moveable kitchen islands, contemporary closet organizers, stainless steel appliances, smart home technology and individual washers/dryers.

The community will feature more than 15,000 square feet of amenity space, including multiple dining venues, a theater, fitness center, full-service spa and salon with private massage room, outdoor patios, walking paths, gardens and woodshop. Additionally, the facility will feature a club room with sky terraces and lounge, billiards and other multipurpose spaces.

Sharing a campus with Montessori ONE Academy and Nido, a Montessori nursery, the Montessori-focused seniors housing property will be the first of its kind. The facility will combine Montessori methods and programming by Insight Senior Living to create space for inter-generational connections and independence.

The facility is slated to open in fall 2020.
