TUCSON, Ariz. — CBRE National Senior Housing has arranged a $25 million construction loan for Hacienda at The River, a 129-unit assisted living, memory care and skilled nursing community in Tucson.
A joint venture of The Freshwater Group and Watermark Retirement Communities is developing the community on a 5.75 acre plot. When completed, Watermark will manage the community.
Aron Will, executive vice president of CBRE National Senior Housing, and Jim Sellers and Tim Prouty, both senior vice presidents of the CBRE Debt & Structured Finance office in Tucson, secured a three-year, floating-rate loan that then converts to a three-year, mini-perm loan. The loan was placed through a regional bank.
Based in Tuscon, Watermark is the 13th largest operator of seniors housing communities in the U.S. with 38 communities comprising 7,483 units, according to 2015 data from the American Seniors Housing Association.
