PORTLAND, OR - Strategic Student & Senior Housing Trust, Inc. (SSSHT), a public, non-traded real estate investment trust sponsored by SmartStop Asset Management, LLC (SmartStop), announced its acquisition of Courtyard at Mt. Tabor, a continuum of care senior housing community offering 286 units of independent living, assisted living and memory care in Portland, Oregon. SSSHT purchased the facility for $92 million.
Located at 6125 and 6323 SE Division St., Courtyard at Mt. Tabor is currently 94 percent occupied and 100 percent private pay. An expansion project that will add an additional 23-unit memory care building to the facility is scheduled to break ground in the fall of 2018.
"As an established, award-winning retirement community, Courtyard at Mt. Tabor aligns perfectly with our strategy to acquire stabilized properties that also offer an opportunity to enhance value through operational or structural improvements," said John Strockis, chief investment officer. "The property also benefits from its ideal location in Portland, a welcoming city with premier senior housing fundamentals and high cultural acceptance of senior living communities. This property is Strategic Student & Senior Housing Trust's fourth senior housing acquisition and a welcome addition to our diversified and growing real estate portfolio."
Courtyard at Mt. Tabor is a full-service retirement community that offers extensive dining service options, wellness care and activities, transportation, personal care and support services, housekeeping, and a 24-hour front desk staff. The property received the Caring Stars award in 2015 and 2016, a program that honors the best senior living communities in the United States based on consumer reviews.
Situated on 7.1 acres of land in the Mt. Tabor submarket of Portland, the community was constructed between 1999, 2000 and 2009.
Integral Senior Living, a premier senior living operator that manages independent, assisted living and memory care properties throughout 18 states, has managed the property since 2011 and will continue to manage the property on a day-to-day basis on behalf of the REIT.
"We look forward to being partners with Strategic Student & Senior Housing Trust at Courtyard at Mt. Tabor," said Collette Valentine-Gray, Integral Senior Living's CEO and COO.
