July 16, 2019

For Immediate Release

Los Angeles, CA – July 16, 2019 – Canyon Partners Real Estate LLC® (“Canyon”) has provided $10.9 million of preferred equity to Griffin Living (“Griffin”) to finance the ground-up construction of a Class A, 86-unit senior living facility located near Westlake Village, CA. This transaction represents Canyon’s fourth investment with Griffin since 2013.

The project will be a first-class senior living community conveniently located off the Thousand Oaks Blvd exit of US Route 101, and will include 58 assisted living units and 28 memory care units within a two-story, 77,000 square foot community. The development is proximate to several medical facilities, including Los Robles Hospital and Medical Center and Thousand Oaks Healthcare Center, as well as convenient lifestyle retail centers, entertainment, and other amenities.

“The Thousand Oaks community is an underserved area for senior housing and memory care with high projections for unmet demand by 2020, yet this project is currently one of only two senior living developments approved in Thousand Oaks. We continue to expand our strong relationship with Canyon as we partner on the development of this project,” said Paul Griffin, Chief Executive Officer of Griffin Living.

Canyon has a long track record of deploying capital in Southern California. Over the past five years, Canyon has made over $600 million of debt and equity investments, supporting the financing of $1.7 billion of assets in Southern California. Canyon has partnered with Griffin Living to finance the development of three other projects: The Viano at Riverwalk apartments in Riverside, CA; the Georgian Lakeside, a 95-unit assisted living and memory care residence in Roswell, GA; and in 2018, VivaBella at Simi Valley, a 101-unit assisted living and memory care community in Simi Valley, CA which was awarded National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) Best 55+ Assisted Living or Special Needs Community on the Boards Gold/Innovation award.
