Beech Street Provides $6.4 Million Loan for a N.Y. ALF

Beech Street Capital, LLC recently provided a $6.4 million to refinance Keepsake Village at Greenpoint, a 54-bed assisted living community in Liverpool, New York.

Joshua Rosen, executive vice president of Beech Street, originated the transaction using HUD’s Section 232/223(a)(7) loan program out of the firm’s Chicago office.

The existing mortgage had about 30 years remaining, and Beech Street was able to increase the loan term back to the original term of 35 years, allowing the broker to reduce annual mortgage payments and increase its debt service coverage. The property’s estimated remaining economic life, at 50 years, along with its quality condition helped support the increased loan term.

The financing will transfer the existing replacement reserve balance and continue the annual deposit to the replacement reserves, giving the property adequate funds for future realty and non-realty replacement.
