PLANS, DESCRIPTION: Chicago-based Ventas Inc. purchased the more than 300-unit The Carlisle Naples senior living community for $82.25 million.
The price equated to $4.63 million per acre.
The 17.78-acre highly amenitized senior community features assisted and independent living. It includes a restaurant-style dining facility with a private dining room, several activity rooms, a fitness facility, theaters, a business center, pool, spa and beauty salon. The community also features health care programs and services.
Its occupancy rate averages in the mid- to upper-90% range.
The property, which was previously owned by the private equity firm Starwood Capital, will continue to be leased and managed by Solana Beach, Calif.-based Senior Resource Group LLC.
“I think Ventas recognized it as a wonderful community in an excellent market and location,” says Tim Fox, executive vice president of Senior Resource Group. “It's found a niche in the market and people like what it offers. Naples doesn't have a high a barrier to entry as some other markets, but it is one of the better markets.”
Fox says the sale will have no impact on residents.
