Ziegler Arranges $20.5M Bond Financing for Glencroft CCRC in Arizona

by Jeff Shaw

GLENCROFT, Ariz. — Ziegler, a specialty investment bank, has arranged $20.5 million in non-rated, fixed-rate bonds for Glencroft Senior Living, a continuning care retirement community (CCRC) in Glendale.

The community, built by Friendship Retirement Corp. in 1970, comprises several entities: Glencroft Towers I, Sarah’s Place, Friendship Foundation and Colter Commons. The CCRC totals 752 units.

Glencroft Towers I and Sarah’s Place were funded with HUD and FHA-insured loans, respectively, which the new bonds will refinance.

The new bonds are part of a turnaround effort for Glencroft, which was hit hard by the Great Recession. New management took over the community in 2014, converting from an entry-fee model to a standard rental model to attract middle-market seniors.
