Lancaster Pollard Arranges $28.3M for Refinancing, Construction of Seniors Housing Communities in Ohio
GARFIELD HEIGHTS, OHIO — Lancaster Pollard has arranged $28.3 million in financing for Sisters of the Holy Spirit, a faith-based nonprofit operator based in the Cleveland suburb of Garfield Heights. The financing is arranged as two loans. The first was a $12.6 million nonrecourse HUD loan that replaces existing bonds on Jennings Center for Older Adults, a 438-unit independent living, assisted living, skilled nursing and adult daycare community in Garfield Heights. The second transaction was $15.7 million in tax-exempt bond financing for the construction of a 74-unit assisted living community, to be named Jennings at Brecksville, in nearby Brecksville. The transactions were also structured around the creation of a new real estate company, which will allow Sisters of the Holy Spirit to distribute excess funds from the Garfield Heights community to the Brecksville community without penalty. Kass Matt led the transaction for Lancaster Pollard.
