DENVER (March 6, 2023) — United Properties is pleased to announce the topping out of Amira Choice Arvada, its newest Assisted Living and Memory Care community in Colorado.

“We are excited to have reached this construction milestone as we look forward to completing this special project. It is a tough environment for construction right now, and we have only been able to reach this topping out milestone through the hard work and dedication of our team,” said Matt Oermann, vice president, United Properties. “This marks United Properties’ first location in Colorado under our new Amira brand. We are thrilled to provide supportive services and individualized care to our seniors within a beautiful community where everyone can flourish.”

The senior living community will have four floors and 120 units. Both inside and out, Amira Choice Arvada offers extensive amenities for every season, including beautifully landscaped grounds and spacious apartment homes featuring comfortable, light-filled layouts — from studio to two-bedroom floor plans — with premium finishes and fixtures. From well-appointed living spaces to fulfilling social opportunities and elegant design, every detail is designed to help residents live life to the fullest. An experienced team will manage the day-to-day maintenance, freeing up time for residents to enjoy community activities and events with their neighbors.

“It has been an honor to work with United Properties on the Amira Choice Arvada project,” said Ian McIntosh, project executive, Catamount Constructors. “All project teams demonstrated strong collaboration to get to this point of being able to celebrate the topping out of this senior living project.”

“We are grateful for the opportunity to be part of this senior living project with everyone at United Properties,” said Mark Barton, Denver division president, Catamount Constructors. “We are excited for the future with this great team.”

Amira Choice Arvada will feature beautiful millwork with under cabinet lighting, quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances, high-end finishes and more. The senior living community will also feature a variety of lifestyle amenities, such as restaurant-style dining, a spa, fitness studio, library, game room, community lounge, theater/multi-purpose room and two outdoor amenity decks.

Boasting amazing views of North Table Mountain and the Denver foothills, the community is also close to walking trails, a King Soopers-anchored shopping center, medical facilities and restaurants.

“We chose Arvada because it allows us to create an environment for our residents to feel empowered to live optimistically, confidently and with a sense of purpose. The location fulfills our goal to provide delightful homes in a community that offers residents a sense of belonging, engagement and connection,” said Oermann. “The City of Arvada is a highly desirable location, with a high retention rate for its residents. Our community will provide seniors in the area who may need additional care another option that allows them to stay in the city they love.”

Occupancy is expected in 2024. Project partners include Catamount Constructors, VTBS Architects, Brue Baukol Capital Partners, First National Bank of Omaha, Great Lakes Management and HS Colorado LLC. For more information, visit
