Cushman & Wakefield Negotiates $58M Sale of Massive Seniors Housing Asset in Southern California
RIVERSIDE, CALIF. — Cushman & Wakefield has arranged the sale of Altavita Village, California’s third-largest seniors housing community. Senior Living Riverside LP, an affiliate of La Jolla, Calif.-based Westmont Living, acquired the asset for $58 million, or $98,500 per unit. The seller was Air Force Village West Inc.
Totaling more than 1.2 million square feet, Altavita Village is a continuing care retirement community (CCRC) comprising 267 independent living cottages, 103 independent living apartments, 70 independent living duplexes, 59 skilled nursing beds, 55 assisted living units and 35 memory care units. Additionally, the community features main and private dining rooms, a village café, clinic, library, meeting rooms, a chapel and beauty shop. At the time of sale, the asset was 40 percent occupied.
Altavita Village is located on a 153-acre site at 17050 Arnold Drive in Riverside, and the property was originally developed in 1989 as a retirement community for military officers before opening to the general public in 2015. The development is located adjacent to March Air Reserve Base.
Since 2013, prior ownership invested more than $8 million in upgrades at the property. The buyer plans to invest $20 million in the property over the next several years and convert the entire community into a rental community while discontinuing existing CCRC contracts. Additionally, the property will be rebranded as Westmont Village.
