MESA, Ariz. — Ryan Cos. and Cadence Senior Living have unveiled plans for Azure Mesa, a 170-unit independent living, assisted living and memory care community in Mesa, a suburb of Phoenix.
The upscale, 183,000-square-foot property will feature 142 units that may be used for independent living or assisted living, plus 28 units devoted to memory care. Construction is already underway, with a planned delivery of summer 2019.
HFF worked on behalf of Cadence and Ryan to arrange a joint venture equity partnership with an undisclosed institutional partner.
Azure Mesa is located on an eight-acre site adjacent to Granite Reef Park, close to restaurants, retail, recreation and medical services. Ryan A+E is designing the community, while Studio SIX5 is designing the interiors.
The Cadence-Ryan team is working on a second Azure location in North Scottsdale, which recently received Scottsdale City Council approval.
Ryan Companies currently has over 600,000 square feet of senior living projects under construction in Arizona and nationally has completed over 4 million square feet of senior living communities. Cadence Senior Living has over 30 years of seniors housing development and management experience.
