The Wolff Company—a Scottsdale-based private equity firm and senior living developer—has broken ground on Revel Amberglen, a new independent living apartment community within the Amberglen Business Park mixed-use masterplan in Hillsboro. Characterized by celebrity chef-driven dining options, personalized amenities and spectacular spaces, Revel Amberglen is expected to open in 2020 and will set a new standard of quality and service in the senior living sector.

In 2017, the CBRE Senior Housing & Care Market report indicated that nationwide there had been a 50 percent decrease in new senior housing projects since the peak in 2015. This is problematic for Hillsboro, where the population of those aged 55+ increased nearly 20 percent between 2013 and 2016.

“Nationwide, and in places like Hillsboro, there is an underserved and growing market of renters aged 55+ looking for a convenient, upscale, lock-and-leave lifestyle,” said Mike Milhaupt, V.P. of Senior Development at The Wolff Company. “Revel Amberglen will give prospective residents a higher quality senior living option where choices have previously been limited.”

Once completed, the five-story property will offer 143 studio, one-, and two-bedroom independent living residences. Built adjacent to Amberglen Park, Revel Amberglen offers amenities unique to the Revel portfolio, including a full-service salon and spa, an indoor saltwater pool, and a fitness studio. The lifestyle at Revel Amberglen is further enhanced by celebrity chef-driven dining experiences including multiple restaurants with innovative seasonal menus from acclaimed chef and Food Network star, Beau MacMillan.

“This community will fill a gap in the market and set a new benchmark for senior living rental communities,” said Milhaupt. “Revel Amberglen will offer the resort-style amenities and experiences that make senior living something to look forward to and celebrate.”

Revel Amberglen joins a portfolio of 19 senior living communities from the Wolff Co. currently open or under construction. In 2018, the company has continued to broaden its portfolio of market-leading communities with plans to invest $300-$400 million annually in the development of new independent and assisted living communities, in addition to the purchase and renovation of existing communities.
