PLANS, DESCRIPTION: A joint venture of Kayne Anderson Real Estate Advisors and Bonita Springs-based Discovery Senior Living purchased six Aston Gardens senior-housing developments in Florida from another partnership Discovery Senior Living had with GE.

The new joint venture purchased the five communities on the Gulf Coast, with 1,688 total living units, for $245.16 million.

The price equated to $145,237 per unit.

The sale included the 326-unit Courtyards in Sun City, 375-unit Pelican Marsh in Naples, 252-unit Sun City North, 325-unit Parkland, 372-unit Tampa and the 363-unit Pelican Pointe in Venice. The properties feature a mixture of villas, independent- and assisted-living and memory care. The entire portfolio is 97% occupied.

Kayne Anderson Real Estate Advisors, the real estate private equity arm of Kayne Anderson Capital Advisors LP, is taking the majority ownership position in the new joint venture, according to Thomas Harrison, CEO of Discovery Senior Living. Discovery Management Group will continue to operate the properties.

“We are delighted that we were able to partner with KAREA in order to negotiate a buyout and keep the Aston Gardens assets in our portfolio,” Harrison says in a press release. “These properties are located in attractive markets with favorable demographic trends, and are thus well positioned to be a continued great investment for us.”
