KeyBank Provides $192.5 Million For Texas Seniors Housing Portfolio

Cleveland-based KeyBank Real Estate Capital has provided $192.5 million in Freddie Mac financing to Kayne Anderson Real Estate Advisors for a six-property seniors housing portfolio located throughout Texas.

Charlie Shoop and Caleb Marten of KeyBank’s Commercial Mortgage Group structured the fixed rate loans that included 10-year interest only terms, which refinanced a bridge loan provided by KeyBank, which was required to consummate the purchase of the communities.


Paul DiVito, Mark Amantea and Eric Hafertepen of Key’s Healthcare Group provided the bridge loan financing for the acquisition which closed within 30 days of application.

The Texas-based seniors housing communities were built between 2006-2008 and total 1,238 units.
