Meridian Lines Up Construction Financing on Punta Gorda Assisted Living

Meridian Capital Group arranged $8.1 million in construction financing for Hampton Manor of Punta Gorda, an assisted living and memory care facility in Punta Gorda, FL, on behalf of Moneil Senior Living.

The four-year loan, provided by a balance sheet lender, features a floating rate over Prime and full-term interest-only payments. The transaction was negotiated by SVP Peter Martz and Mark Krupenia. 

Located at 10211 Tamiami Trail in Punta Gorda, FL, Hampton Manor of Punta Gorda will consist of 91 assisted living and memory beds when complete. 

“Getting lenders excited about construction, especially in conjunction with senior living, was a huge challenge at the height of COVID,” said Krupenia. “Meridian was able to identify a lender who recognized the strength of the sponsor and their strong track record in executing similar deals, which resulted in terms that exceeded our clients’ expectations.”
