The Deal Sheet

American Realty Capital purchased The Solana at Cinco Ranch, a 184-unit, Class-A seniors housing project in Katy. Given the Cinco Ranch location, you won’t be surprised to hear it was a hotly contested asset. (At Cinco Ranch, the saying is location, location, location, location, location.)

The Deal Sheet

HFF managing director Ryan Maconachy and director Chad Lavender repped sellers Formation Development Group and affiliates of The Carlyle Group; they tell us the property is a core asset in a core location, so it received tons of attention. There was one challenge: The community was originally built as 158 units and last year added 26 assisted living and memory care units. Those weren’t open or licensed when the HFF team first hit the market, so potential buyers had to accept a bit of risk. (Above, Ryan and Chad busted out their iPhones last night to snap this pic for us.)

The Deal Sheet

Not much risk, though: The community is now 98% occupied and the new wing has hit the ground running. American Realty capital purchased it for $71M ($387k/unit) free and clear of financing. Ryan and Chad believe the asset is one of the premier seniors housing facilities in the market thanks to impressive amenities (including being adjacent to LaCenterra at Cinco Ranch--no easier place to spoil a grandchild than a mall), high-end finishes, and strong historical occupancy and rent growth. The duo run HFF’s national seniors housing practice and tell us they’ll be hitting Houston with more product later this year.
