Red Capital Partners, LLC, the proprietary debt and equity banking arm of comprehensive capital provider RED CAPITAL GROUP, LLC, recently completed a $13.5 million Balance Sheet construction loan to an affiliate of Avanti Senior Living.

Avanti on Towne Lake will be a 90-unit Luxury Assisted Living and Memory Care facility, located in Cypress, TX, a suburb of Houston and close to the Avanti Headquarters in The Woodlands, TX. The community will consist of 50 assisted living units and 40 memory care units. Avanti Senior Living has partnered with an affiliate of Iron Point Partners to develop a portfolio of Class A senior living communities throughout Texas and the southeastern United States.

The community will feature many modern technological solutions aimed at improving care, lifestyles and accountability. The buildings will have special lighting designed to mimic the lighting you would see throughout the day, which helps residents with Alzheimer’s or dementia with their orientation. In addition, Avanti on Towne Lake will have EHRs, RFID door locks, point-of-care devices for staff and extra monitoring for memory care residents.

To better integrate health care with senior living, Avanti at Towne Lake will have a telehealth room, as well as its own medical exam room. The community will also feature an exercise room with a ballet bar, around which Avanti designed a whole program to build strength and balance.

Tim Hekker, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Avanti Senior Living has shared, “It has been an honor to work with RED once again.
