Prudential Real Estate Investors (PREI) closed on an acquisition of three large assisted living and memory care communities for $110 million, or $281,300 per unit. The new fund, Senior Housing Partners V, closed in May with $629 million of capital commitments. It is PREI’s fifth fund dedicated to seniors housing. One community in Tennessee opened in April 2012 and has 130 units, and another in Tennessee opened last October and has 126 units. The third property is in Connecticut, and it opened last September and has 135 units. PREI will retain Hearth Management, which previously owned the properties in a joint venture partnership, as the manager. Tim Cobb and Steve Thomas of Blueprint Healthcare Real Estate Advisors represented the seller in the transaction.
