Lancaster Pollard Refinances Oregon Memory Care Community

Lancaster Pollard Refinances Oregon Memory Care Community

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... Read More »
Lancaster Pollard Refinances Plum Portfolio

Lancaster Pollard Refinances Plum Portfolio

It’s been quite a lucrative relationship between Lancaster Pollard and California-based skilled nursing operator, Plum Healthcare Group. About 18 months ago, Grant Goodman, Jason Dopoulos, Joe Munhall and Elliot Kaple secured $400 million in bridge financing from Credit Suisse on 27 skilled nursing facilities in California owned by Plum. However, that was short-term, corporate-level recourse-based debt, which did not give Plum much capital flexibility. So, upon closing of that transaction, Lancaster Pollard immediately began work on a HUD refinance, and the time has now come. On behalf of 26 of those facilities, Messrs. Goodman, Dopoulos and Kaple led the way on a $420 million HUD... Read More »

Lancaster Pollard Arranges Two Financings

Lancaster Pollard Arranges Two Financings

Lancaster Pollard keeps the closings coming, arranging two transactions for senior care facilities in Georgia and California and showing some variety in the process. First, Conner Girdley led the way on a construction financing for a to-be-built community with 131 units of assisted living and memory care in Cobb County, Georgia. The borrower, Brickmont Assisted Living, obtained $24.5 million in tax-exempt bond financing though the Section 142(d) program, which provides financing to assisted living communities that set aside at least 20% of their units for residents whose income is 50% or less of the area median gross income. The Cobb County Board of Commissioners unanimously approved the... Read More »
