Dekel Capital Structures $59.4 MM Debt and Equity Package for Senior Care Facility in Los Angeles
By: Dekel Capital
The financing consists of a $38.7 million construction loan originated by East West Bank and arranged through Dekel Capital's advisory practice. The four-year financing, with interest only monthly payments for the first 36 months of the term, was underwritten at 65% LTC. Dekel also provided $20.7 million in joint venture equity through the firm's proprietary equity fund Dekel Strategic Investors.
Developed by Willis Development, Sage Glendale Senior Living will consist of 81 assisted living units, 24 private memory care units and four semi-private memory care units. Amenities will include community garden, library, theater, classrooms, exercise area, commercial kitchen and beauty salon. Sage Glendale is located at 509-525 W. Elk Avenue in Glendale, CA, nine miles north of downtown Los Angeles. It is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2020.
Sage Glendale is the only assisted living or senior care facility under construction in a severely supply constrained Glendale submarket, according to Dekel Principal Shlomi Ronen who structured the financing.
"The Public Policy Institute of California estimates that by 2030, more than one million seniors will require some assistance with self-care," said Ronen. "In Glendale, where there are fewer than 20 facilities to serve a growing senior population of more than 200,000, this financing will help Willis Development meet the current and future demand for quality senior housing in what is the third largest city in Los Angeles County."
