Silver Arch Closes $4.75 Million Loan for Michigan Assisted Living Facility

Silver Arch Capital Partners, a New Jersey-based private lender to the commercial real estate market that specializes in alternative lending, closed a $4.75 million loan for Belle Oakes Living Center, an assisted living facility in Lake City, Michigan. The owners of the facility will use the loan to streamline operations and obtain conventional financing. Belle Oakes is a 48-unit, 32,000 square foot facility that rests on 20 acres.

“The borrowers needed to refinance an existing mortgage and pay off other debt related to a recent 11-unit expansion of the property,” Jeffrey Wolfer, president and CEO of Silver Arch, said in a prepared statement. “The facility’s operations have been improved and the cost structure has been lowered by the owners, resulting in a property that is currently performing at a high level, generating substantial net income.” 


The Belle Oakes community was constructed in 2002 and renovated in 2012.

“The financing has allowed the borrowers to consolidate their debt and align debt service payments with cash flow,” Wolfer said. “The loan was very attractive because the borrowers have shown they are excellent operators. The assisted living/healthcare industry is in a high growth mode, which should be attractive to conventional takeout lenders.”
