Blueprint Negotiates Sale of Rowley Masonic Community Campus in Central Iowa

PERRY, Iowa — Blueprint Healthcare Real Estate Advisors has arranged the sale of Rowley Masonic Community, a seniors housing campus located on more than 20 acres in Perry, a suburb of Des Moines.

The original Rowley Masonic Community was built in the late 1950s with eight independent living cottages added in the 1980s. In January 2014, the seller began constructing a 72,000-square-foot addition featuring 16 assisted living units and 57 skilled nursing and transitional care beds.

The Board of Directors engaged Health Dimensions Group in 2018 to help stabilize operations after several years of instability and to work with the board to determine the optimal future strategic direction for the community.

Another nonprofit provider, Perry Lutheran Homes, acquired the property for an undisclosed price.
