Crestavilla, a relatively new senior housing property in Laguna Niguel, has been sold, according to Cushman & Wakefield.
The brokerage represented a joint venture between Fremont Realty Capital and Steadfast Development in the sale to affiliates of Kisco Senior Living.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
At a cost of roughly $70 million, Crestavilla debuted in 2018, offering upscale senior housing in 201 units comprised of independent living, assisted living and memory care.
The community first met some resistance after it was initially approved in 2012. Residents protested the development at 30111 Niguel Road, citing traffic congestion issues and geological stability of the land. The plans were altered to reduce the number of rooms to 201 from 224 and lower the height of the buildings.
At the time it opened, apartment rental prices started at $6,600 per month, with premium apartments expected to lease for up to $15,000 per month.
Amenities include a fitness center and underground parking. There are five dining venues, a poolside lounge and a rooftop lounge. Outdoor amenities include a 15,000-square-foot active rooftop space with organic greenhouse, art studio and practice green; as well as a year-round heated pool, dog park and a kids’ play area.
Cushman & Wakefield’s Rick Swartz, Jay Wagner, Aaron Rosenzweig, Dan Baker and Bailey Nygard handled the transaction.
