Harrison Street Real Estate Capital has secured a multi-layered financing package for the acquisition of a 1,118-unit senior housing portfolio. 

PGIM Real Estate provided a $250.4 million fixed-rate, cross-defaulted and cross-collateralized loan, public records show. 

The 12 properties are spread across California and Nevada. The portfolio consists of assisted living and memory care communities located in the San Francisco, Los Angeles, Ventura, Sacramento, Riverside, San Diego, Stockton, and Las Vegas metro areas. 

The seller was Gallaher Cos. Oakmont Management Group will continue to provide property management services. 

Complex financing program

According to Harrison Street, the portfolio is part of a larger, 2,195-unit senior housing deal the company agreed to close earlier this month, involving both Gallaher Cos. and Healthpeak Properties Inc. The total price of the 24-property acquisition is estimated at $1.2 billion.

Greystone was involved in the financing strategy by providing debt funding for the purchase of 16 senior housing assets in California. The portfolio mortgage also involved Freddie Mac loan assumptions.

Trace Wilson, executive director at PGIM Real Estate, and Cary Tremper, head of Greystone’s Seniors Housing Capital Markets, worked alongside Harrison Street in securing the transaction.
