DURHAM, N.C. — CBRE has arranged $12.2 million in acquisition financing for Bartlett Reserve, a 100-unit independent living community in Durham. The borrower was Focus Healthcare Partners LLC.
Originally built as a hotel, the property underwent a multi-million-dollar renovation in 2013 by the undisclosed seller to convert the community into a Class A seniors housing community. It was fully occupied at the time of sale.
Aron Will of CBRE National Senior Housing arranged the 10-year, floating-rate loan with five years of interest-only payments through its Fannie Mae DUS Multifamily loan origination program.
