A new senior housing community built by a partnership including Ryan Cos., Wesley Homes and Presbyterian Homes & Services has opened in Bonney Lake, Wash. Dubbed Wesley at Tehaleh, the 228-unit property is part of Tehaleh by Newland, a 4,700-acre master-planned community.

In July 2019, the joint venture acquired more than 16 acres of vacant land for the development, for $5 million, Pierce County data shows. That same month, the developers also secured a $98.7 million construction loan financed by U.S. Bank.
