Value-Add Opportunity Spurs Lending Activity in Phoenix

JLL secures $13.46 million acquisition bridge financing for Prescott Lakes Senior Community

PHOENIX, October 21, 2016 – Institutional capital remains available as investors in the Southwest find value with senior housing communities. On behalf of Bascom Arizona Ventures, LLC, JLL's Capital Markets experts today announced the firm secured $13.46 million in acquisition bridge financing. The loan will be used for the purchase and rehabilitation of the Prescott Lakes Senior Community, a Class A, age-restricted multifamily asset in the Phoenix suburb of Prescott, Arizona.  A global bank provided the floating rate loan at 65 percent loan-to-cost.

Managing Director Brian Halpern and Associate Alex Kane led the financing efforts.

"The Prescott Lakes Senior Community presented a highly desirable situation for lenders as the stabilized asset is located in an upscale master-planned community and a 'best-in-class' sponsor with Bascom," said Halpern. "This loan will facilitate the continued improvement upon an already high quality asset."

Prescott Lakes Senior Community offers resident ages 55 and over access to the private golf courses at Club at Prescott Lakes, which is located within the master planned community. The Club at Prescott Lakes also includes a 14,000-square-foot community center that features a pool and spa and a media room.

Community amenities include complimentary scheduled transportation, a secure entry system, a library, outdoor barbecues, a game room with billiards and a heated outdoor gazebo. In-unit amenities include stackable washer and dryers in select units, breakfast bars, individually controlled thermostats and patios or balconies.
