Sale and acquisition financing of independent living community in Detroit suburbs completed

JLL Capital Markets jointly marketed the property to both seniors and multi-housing buyers

April 14, 2021

CHICAGO, April 14, 2021 – JLL Capital Markets announced today that it closed the $17 million sale and arranged $25.35 million in acquisition and renovation financing for The Park at Trowbridge, a 298-unit, seniors housing community located in the northern Detroit suburb of Southfield, Michigan.

JLL worked on behalf of a private investor seller to complete the sale to a regional owner-operator of multi-housing and age-restricted housing. JLL also represented the buyer in arranging the non-recourse acquisition and renovation loan from a regional bank.

The property currently operates as an independent living facility, but the physical plant and location of the asset also appeals to conventional and age-restricted apartment owners. As such, the deal was executed as a collaboration between JLL’s Seniors Housing and Multi-Housing Capital Markets teams. The combined effort produced multiple attractive offers from both seniors housing and multi-housing buyers.

The JLL Capital Markets team executing the sale was led by Senior Directors David Gaines and Joel Mendes and Detroit Market Lead Dave Macdonald. The financing was led by Managing Director Trent Niederberger and Director Stephen Van Leer.
