Transaction Description:

George Smith Partners arranged financing for the construction of a Class-A Assisted Living Facility in Southern California. The Facility was designed similarly to a 4-star hotel property with luxury interior design and a top tier culinary program. Amenities include: gourmet exhibition kitchen and dining area, wellness center, full service spa, hair salon, landscaped outdoor space, private dog park and dog services. The Sponsors have made a tremendous effort to offer a one-of-a-kind experience, with residents being able to tend their own vegetable gardens, attend wellness classes and more. The Facility will also be able to accommodate residents who require memory care.

This is the sponsor’s first Assisted Living project. GSP was able to structure a strategic partnership to boost the experience profile of the Sponsor. This was essential for the capital provider to get comfortable with the project.

The financing structure provides flexibility to the Sponsor; after an initial 18-month construction term, the Sponsor can extend the construction loan for 6 months. After construction, the loan converts to a 24-month bridge loan during lease up/stabilization for a total loan term of up to 4 years.
