WEST HARTFORD, Conn. — Blueprint Healthcare Real Estate Advisors has arranged the sale of Hamilton Heights Senior Living, a 113-unit independent living and memory care community in West Hartford.
Formerly known as Mount St. Joseph Academy, a Roman Catholic boarding school for girls, the property was adapted into an independent living, assisted living and memory care community in 1997. The original academy was built in 1905 by well-known Hartford architect John J. Dwyer, and is currently on the National Register of Historic Places. Hamilton Heights is situated on a large urban infill site surrounded by a growing seniors population.
The community was included as part of a larger portfolio acquisition of Northeast seniors housing assets, which the seller ultimately acquired from a REIT in 2021. This property, though, was a geographic outlier.
The buyer was Lloyd Jones Senior Living, which was aiming to expand its Northeast operating footprint. The property will operate under Lloyd Jones’ proprietary Aviva brand as AVIVA West Hartford.
Hamilton Heights marks Lloyd Jones’ fourth seniors housing acquisition this year. In February, the firm added two Class A communities to its senior living portfolio and a third in April: AVIVA Woodlands in Lincoln, Nebraska; AVIVA River Bend in Rochester, Minnesota; and AVIVA Maybelle Carter in Nashville, Tennessee.
The seller and price were not disclosed.
