CALAMAR OPENS NEW INDEPENDENT SENIOR COMMUNITY IN BEDFORD, NH


(Bedford, NH, December 5, 2017) State Senator Andy Sanborn, Representative Laurie Sanborn, along with esteemed city and local officials, will join Calamar Wednesday, December 6, 2017 at 11:00 a.m. to celebrate with a ribbon cutting ceremony at noon to commemorate the completion and grand opening of Maple Ridge Estates at Bedford. Calamar put out the welcome mat and opened the doors to residents in a new three-story, 116-apartment, independent living senior community for those 62+ at 43 Technology Drive in Bedford. Maple Ridge Estates represents an affordable living option and opportunities for those 62+, providing active, independent living without inflated rent structures that are often associated with retirement communities.


Maple Ridge Estates is an entirely smoke-free, pet friendly community offering one and two bedroom apartments with rents ranging from $1600-2025/per month that include heat and water. All apartments are provided with a washer and dryer and all two bedrooms feature 2 baths. “In our on-going quest to better each community we build, we have incorporated these features and amenities based on the request of our residents. The two bath apartments are an extremely popular amenity” said Michael Morris, Northeast Regional Manager for Calamar.


“The positive response to Maple Ridge Estates has been overwhelming. The interest in this property has been very steady and speaks to the need in this area for this type of community. We welcomed 40 new residents that moved in on June 1, 2017. Now that the community is operating, interest is peaked even more!", Morris said.


Maple Ridge Estates will definitely fill the void in the senior apartment industry by providing a much needed alternative to the expensive, amenity driven options that are available.

“The apartments we build are indeed affordable, yet another priceless amenity they offer residents is a real sense of belonging, a community where friendships flourish. It’s not just about the “bricks and mortar” of a building. It’s an enhanced lifestyle with programs and activities managed by the residents with the help of our managers, engaging and developing new relationships. We have a saying at our communities that really rings true, “Come as strangers, live as friends”. It’s what we believe in and strive for with each community we build”. Morris said.


“Maple Ridge Estates was made possible through the cooperation of various government and city municipalities who all recognized the tremendous need for this project and moved forward to provide quality, affordable senior housing to their residents.”, said Calamar Director of Facilities Marc Guizzo.
Maple Ridge Estates represents more than a $17.3 Million dollar investment and is the 14th senior housing project Calamar has embarked on over the last 9 years and the third in New Hampshire. Calamar’s portfolio of senior housing development is comprised of properties in various locations throughout New York state, the Mid-West and New England region.
