HHHunt is building Spring Arbor of Frederick, Md., a senior living community that is expected to open in early 2019.

FREDERICK, Md. — HHHunt has begun construction on its newest senior living community, Spring Arbor of Frederick, Md.

At 6601 English Muffin Way, the community will have the capacity to serve 109 residents. It will feature assisted living and memory care services.

Spring Arbor of Frederick is being developed on a 10-acre site along the Monocacy River and near the Monocacy National Battlefield. The 110,000-square-foot community is expected to open in early 2019 and represents a $32.3 million investment.

In addition to standard amenities, the community will include life-skills programming, activity and wellness programs, fully accessible courtyards with covered seating areas, walking paths and gardening opportunities.

Similar to all Spring Arbor communities, there will be an emphasis on resident activities, such as art and music programs like the “Art from the Heart” and “Memory and Music” programs. The programs provide residents an outlet for their creativity and allows them to enjoy meaningful communication and expressions through art and music. Spring Arbor has also introduced Horticulture Therapy as part of its activity and wellness program.

“HHHunt is excited to begin construction on our newest Spring Arbor community,” Rich Williams, senior vice president for Senior Living at HHHunt, said in the news release. “Our team at Spring Arbor of Frederick will provide person-centered care through exceptional service to our residents and their loved ones. This community will continue HHHunt’s vision to improve the world and how people live by creating meaningful experiences and places of great distinction.”

The facility is HHHunt’s third senior living community in Maryland and the second Spring Arbor community to start construction in the state this year. It is the company’s 24th senior living community, joining others in North Carolina, Virginia and Maryland.

Construction for this new community was made possible through financing from a $50 million guidance facility from SunTrust Bank.

“We have enjoyed supporting HHHunt on this project as they move forward with the new Spring Arbor community,” said Evelyn Lee, senior vice president of SunTrust’s Aging Services practice. “Their attention to detail shows that HHHunt is passionate about the residents they serve.”
