CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--An affiliate of Walton Street Capital, L.L.C. ("Walton Street") originated a $59.2 million loan to a partnership between Alliance Residential (“Alliance”) and Affinius Capital (“Affinius”) for the refinance of Watermark at Almaden (the "Property"), a 200-unit senior living community located at 4610 Almaden Expressway in San Jose, CA.
Delivered in late 2020, the property is currently completing lease up. The Property includes a variety of studio, one-, two-, and companion-bedroom floorplans. Community amenities span nearly 70,000 sf and include multiple dining areas, a cocktail lounge, fitness and wellness center, golf simulator, spa, outdoor pool, and many more spaces catered to enhancing the resident experience.
“This was an attractive opportunity to finance a senior living community in a high barrier to entry market that has continually displayed strong market fundamentals. Both Alliance and Affinius are experienced in the sector and developed a top-grade asset to cater to the San Jose market,” said Hilary Caudle, Vice President with Walton Street.
“We have been very active lenders on multifamily assets over the last 5+ years and this represents a furtherance of that strategy to lend into other rental housing asset classes such as senior housing, student housing and build to rent communities. We remain focused on high quality borrowers in this effort and are pleased to have completed our first senior housing loan with such a strong sponsorship group,” added Luke Goodwin, Senior Principal with Walton Street.
