SSSHT Opens Memory Care Expansion at Community in Portland

PORTLAND, Ore. — Strategic Student & Senior Housing Trust Inc. (SSSHT), a public, non-traded REIT sponsored by SmartStop Asset Management, has completed a freestanding memory care expansion in Portland.

The project extends the offerings at Courtyard at Mt. Tabor, which already offered independent living and assisted living. The expansion adds a 16,000-square-foot building and 23 units. The 7.1-acre community now offers 309 total units.

Known as The Pavilion, the memory care project was 38 percent pre-leased before opening.

“The ideal seniors housing model is a continuum-of-care campus serving private-pay, middle-income seniors that allows residents to age in-place,” says John Strockis, president and chief investment officer of SSSHT. “We maintain a resident-focused perspective and understand the growing need to provide quality memory care in our communities. Courtyard at Mt. Tabor Pavilion delivers additional units to help offset that demand.”

R&H Construction built the project, which Ankrom Moisan Architects designed. Construction took approximately 12 months. The operator is Integral Senior Living.
