More than a year after opening a 167-unit senior living community in Lexington, Kentucky, Atlas Senior Living executed on a purchase option for the property thanks to a $35 million floating-rate loan provided by MidCap Financial. David Sharp, working out of MidCap’s Chicago office, arranged the short-term loan and expects to take it to agency after a seasoning period.
The purpose-built community is already near stabilization after opening in August 2017. Atlas had leased it from the developer/owner, DMK Development, which built the community for approximately $26 million, or $155,700 per unit. With the financing, Atlas received working capital for the continued stabilization and will be able to return capital to its investors.
