Lancaster Pollard Provides $43.6M Bond Financing for CCRC Construction in Ohio

by Jeff Shaw

NEW ALBANY, Ohio — Lancaster Pollard has arranged $43.6 million in bond financing for the construction of Wesley Woods, a new continuing care retirement community in the Columbus suburb of New Albany.

The recipient of the proceeds is Methodist ElderCare Services, an affiliate of the West Ohio Conference of the United Methodist Church that provides housing, healthcare and services to seniors in central Ohio.

Wesley Woods will be located on 37.8 acres alongside a nature preserve. The size of the community and number of units were not disclosed.

The bond financing will also be used to add a wellness center to Wesley Ridge, another Methodist ElderCare development in Ohio that offers assisted living and independent living. In addition to providing new funds for the construction projects, the debt structure will refinance Methodist ElderCare’s existing 2005, 2010 and 2011 tax-exempt bonds.

The Series 2015A and Series 2015B bonds were privately placed with two regional banks. The first 50 percent of entry fee receipts are earmarked and estimated to pay down the Series 2015B bonds of $6 million over a four-year period.

Kass Matt led the transaction for Lancaster Pollard.
