CHICAGO (PRWEB) October 08, 2020
Ziegler, a specialty investment bank, is pleased to announce the successful closing of the Heritage Community of Kalamazoo’s Series 2020AB Bonds.
The Heritage Community of Kalamazoo (“HCK”) is a Michigan not-for-profit corporation that was founded in 1945 that today offers housing and healthcare services to the senior citizens of Kalamazoo County and surrounding areas. HCK provides independent living, assisted living, memory care, and skilled nursing services to over 300 residents at its Portage Street campus, located just south of downtown Kalamazoo. HCK also serves the Kalamazoo, Allegan and Kent counties with private duty homecare. The HCK Obligated Group consists of a total of 225 units: 86 independent living units, 49 assisted living / memory support units, and 90 skilled nursing beds.
HCK will use proceeds of the Series 2020AB Bonds to construct 60 independent living units to be located in a new residential structure on the western portion of its campus to be known as Revel Creek. The new one and two-bedroom units will be arranged in a three and four-story building. The building will also feature a new dining venue with commercial kitchen, a bar area, den, living room, library, outdoor terraces with seating spaces and a fitness room. There will be 67 parking spaces and resident storage for each unit provided in an underground parking garage.
The Series 2020AB Bonds consist of three tranches of tax-exempt fixed interest rate debt. The Series 2020A Bonds ($32,085,000) with a final maturity in 2055 will fund the permanent debt component of this issue. The Series 2020B-1 TEMPSSM–85 Bonds ($6,585,000) and the Series 2020B-2 Bonds TEMPSSM–60 Bonds ($9,180,000) will be repaid with a portion of the first generation entrance fees of the Revel Creek Project. The Series 2020AB Bonds are Fitch “BB” rated and have a yield to maturity of 4.56% on the entire issue and 4.68% on the Series 2020A permanent debt Bonds.
Proceeds of the Series 2020AB Bonds, along with other available funds, will be used to: (i) finance all eligible costs related to the Revel Creek Project; (ii) fund 24 months of interest; (iii) fund various debt service reserve funds; and (iv) pay for a portion costs of issuance related to the financing.
Rachel Olmsted, Chief Financial Officer of the Heritage Community of Kalamazoo, stated, “Heritage is excited to embark upon the construction of Revel Creek as we mark the 75th year of serving seniors in Kalamazoo. We are grateful to our partners at Ziegler for helping us navigate the uncertainty brought about by the pandemic, and ultimately achieving a favorable outcome for the project which will strengthen Heritage for years to come.”
Tom Meyers, Senior Managing Director, Ziegler Senior Living Finance stated, “Ziegler is excited to take part in the next stage of the Heritage Community of Kalamazoo’s longstanding tradition of serving seniors in the Kalamazoo area.

Revel Creek’s independent living addition will expand the Heritage’s product offering and it will add vitality to this mix for decades to come.”
