Freedom Village goes for $95m red-hot FL.
The purchase is a joint venture 20% owned by American Retirement Corp.(ARC) and 80% by investors in a senior housing strategy fund managed by Prudential Real Estate Investors. ARC will manage the independent living facility. Capmark Bank provided approximately $62,000,000 of senior mortgage debt for the transaction.
The Freedom Village CCRC campus, located within the predominately residential neighborhood of Bradenton, is situated on more than 34 acres, and is comprised of 761 beds/units in five buildings totaling approximately 896,000 square feet. The campus was opened in 1984, and underwent several phases of development that were completed by 1992. The campus provides a full range of personal services and healthcare options which include an independent living retirement center with 501 luxury apartments and villas, a nursing center licensed for 120 skilled-nursing beds, and an assisted living facility licensed for 140 units.
According to Dan McNulty, Co-Chairman and Co-CEO of DTZ Rockwood, "The comparatively limited number of existing CCRCs relative to growing senior demographics as well as the high replacement cost supports the strong demand for existing communities."
