Cushman & Wakefield Arranges Refinancing of Senior Housing Community in Stamford

Jayden Lapin-Tatman • 7/22/2022

Stamford, CT – Cushman & Wakefield announced today that the real estate services firm has arranged the refinancing of a newly developed full-continuum senior housing community in Stamford, Connecticut on behalf of Virtus and LCB Senior Living.

Cushman & Wakefield’s Richard Swartz, Jay Wagner, Jim Dooley and Joseph Carbone represented the borrower in the transaction. The loan was provided by VIUM Capital and its affiliate Merchants Bank of Indiana.

“We feel that we found a good financing solution for our valued clients, LCB and Virtus, and overcame a challenging environment to produce an outcome that helps this asset continue towards stabilization,” said Wagner.

The Residence at Summer Street was developed by LCB, a leading senior living operator and developer in New England and the Mid-Atlantic and was fully delivered in 2018 with 104 units of independent living, assisted living and memory care.

The community is a five-story mid-rise building situated between an urban mix of office, local retail, residential multifamily and densely populated single-family neighborhoods. The financing repaid the original construction loan and provides a four-year interest-only period while the property continues its initial lease up. The loan included earn-out proceeds to be funded upon meeting DSCR tests.
