Estancia Fills Void for Suburban Senior Living Product

Regional development of senior housing product has lagged with only two new projects delivered in the last 17 years. However, seniors continue to reside in suburban neighborhoods due to the relative value comparison and desire to remain in familiar neighborhoods.

Enter Estancia Senior Living, a 103-unit 114-bed class-A assisted living and memory care community in Fallbrook near San Diego. Estancia Senior Living debuted in summer 2021 and was recently acquired. Acquisition and mezzanine financing to the tune of $31.6 million was arranged for the property.

The 104-unit two-story facility is 88,892 square feet and features a mix of 79 assisted living accommodations and 25 memory care rooms on a 3.4-acre site. The sale also included 5 acres of additional vacant land located adjacent to the property.

Located at 1735 South Mission Rd., the project will draw residents from the 75-plus age population of 545,668, with projected growth of 3.99 percent and an underlying affluent demographic.

The JLL team representing the borrower, Contour, included Alanna Ellis and Jeff Sause. JLL secured the $24 million three-year floating-rate bank loan along with a $7.6 million four-year fixed-rate mezzanine loan.

Estancia Senior Living is operated by Meridian Senior Living, which has been involved with the project’s planning and design from the outset.
