Giza Development successfully refinanced its new 45-unit/bed memory care community in McMinnville, Oregon (45 miles south of Portland), with the help of Ross Holland of Lancaster Pollard. Managed by Senior Development Resources, the community is located across the street from McMinnville’s full-service hospital and between two medical office parks. Sounds pretty ideal.

It was initially refinanced with a bridge loan provided by OREC Structured Finance Co., which allowed Giza to buy out investors in the property and refinance construction debt. It was also immediately eligible for a permanent refinance. So, Lancaster Pollard secured a $4.9 million loan though HUD with a favorable, long-term rate.
