RED Provides $29M Fannie Mae DUS/MBS Refinance for Class A Assisted Living and Memory Care Community in San Gabriel Valley

COLUMBUS, Ohio–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#FHA–In the exclusive town of Sierra Madre, California, a high-barrier to
entry and highly competitive infill market in Los Angeles County, RED
Capital Group and Borrower, Kensington SM GP LLC, worked together to
bring a Class A Assisted Living and Memory Care community to an area
that was previously underserved in terms of seniors housing.
Construction and lease-up of The Kensington Sierra Madre was completed
in record time, leading to a recent $29M refinance with Fannie Mae

Kensington Sierra Madre
is a 75-suite Assisted Living and Memory
Care community located in Sierra Madre, California, which is in the
heart of the San Gabriel Valley, just to the north of the City of Los
Angeles. The property, which is home to up to 90 residents, includes 41
assisted living suites and 34 memory care suites, complemented by
welcoming resident common areas for dining, living and socializing, and
gardens throughout the grounds. The community is operated by Kensington
Senior Living, LLC (KSL).

In this difficult to zone market, high barriers to entry were met by
exceptional community outreach and multiple successful votes, including
public approval on the 2012 Presidential Ballot. The fulfillment of RED’s
and KSL’s vision in Sierra Madre is a testament to the patience,
perseverance, and expertise required to deliver a best-in-class seniors
housing community in such a desirable location.

This was a ground up construction loan for RED’s proprietary
balance sheet lending capabilities that transitioned effortlessly into a
permanent Fannie Mae loan ahead of schedule.

RED was delighted to work with Fannie Mae to provide the
permanent debt for this outstanding quality seniors housing asset
located in a significantly underserved and built-out Los Angeles
submarket,” states Kathryn Burton Gray, Senior Managing Director for RED.

assisted living and memory care programming which resulted in a rapid
lease-up and stabilization, and performance levels exceeding
