Chicago, IL (PRWEB) July 07, 2014
Ziegler, a specialty investment bank, is pleased to announce the successful closing of the $60,610,000 unrated, fixed-rate Series 2014 Bond issue for Rose Villa, Inc. Rose Villa, Inc. (Rose Villa, or the Borrower) is an Oregon not-for-profit corporation and 501(c)(3) corporation established in 1957 to provide housing and supportive services to people aged 55 years and older in an independent setting.
Today, the Borrower owns and operates a continuing care retirement community providing independent living and 24-hour nursing care to approximately 200 residents on a 21.5-acre site southeast of Portland, Oregon in unincorporated Clackamas County. While the community was originally comprised of 260 independent living apartments, management has reduced the number of units over the years by combining units to meet market preferences for larger units, removing a number of units, reassigning units for office and other common space usage, and in the past two years, taking units out of inventory at turnover in anticipation of the Project. Currently, there are 134 independent living apartments in inventory.
Proceeds of the Bonds will be used to (i) fund the redevelopment of the community, including the addition of 75 new independent living apartments (including 40 cottage homes in one-story buildings and 35 apartments), and a “Main Street” commons featuring a performing arts center, wellness center, spa, newsroom, library, technology and learning center and other common areas, and internal and external renovation of existing apartments upon turnover of current residents (collectively, the Project); (ii) finance a debt service reserve fund; and (iii) fund a portion of interest and certain costs of issuance of the Bonds.
Mary Muñoz, Managing Director in Ziegler’s Senior Living practice, stated, “It has been exciting to see Rose Villa’s very focused team craft such an interesting and somewhat unique redevelopment plan, with their award-winning ‘pocket neighborhood’ concept. The campus has really stayed true to its niche in the greater Portland market, and for that reason and more, we see great long-term success here. We give management and the development team a lot of credit for aggressively moving to prepare for the future. It has been an honor to be part of the team.”
