Titan SenQuest acquires Texas seniors asset

Bryan, Texas—SenQuest, the seniors housing division of Los Angeles-based Titan Real Estate Investment Group, has acquired a 180-unit seniors housing asset in Bryan, Texas, known as Waldenbrooke Estates. The luxury independent living community was built in 1985 and received $260,000 in upgrades from 2011 to 2013.

“Waldenbrooke Estates is typical of the high-quality senior living communities that we are focused on acquiring,” says Doug Allen, a Titan partner and head of acquisitions for SenQuest. “Our strategy is based on our assessment of future returns. As the aging baby-boom generation enters retirement, the expectation to maintain a comfortable independent lifestyle will increase the demand for independent senior living communities like Waldenbrooke.”

The purchase puts SenQuest on target to invest over $100 million into seniors housing acquisitions in 2013. Amenities at Waldenbrooke include a pool with hot tub, a beauty and barber shop, scheduled transportation to shopping and medical appointments, a pet friendly policy, fitness center, library and gardening center.
