MBK Senior Living has acquired the West Living Portfolio for $382 million. The portfolio includes nine senior housing communities across California, Washington and Arizona, totaling 1,200 units.

Cushman & Wakefield’s Vice Chair Richard Swartz, Executive Director Jay Wagner, Senior Director Aaron Rosenzweig and Associates Sam Dylag and Alex Petrosian represented the seller.

“John Rimbach and his team at West Living assembled an outstanding portfolio through a combination of acquisitions, development and redevelopment,” Swartz told Multi-Housing News. “The significant interest shown by the institutional senior housing investment market was a testament to the quality of these assets and the management structure. We are confident that MBK will have similar success as they continue to identify value-add opportunities in these great properties.”

Swartz and Wagner were also part of the team that arranged the sale of Woodland Terrace in Cary, N.C., a 176-unit independent living, assisted living and memory care community that was sold to a joint venture between Welltower and Kisco Senior Living, in April.
