Minneapolis – Transwestern Real Estate Services (TRS) announces its Midwest Capital Markets team brokered the sale of Hiawatha Suites, a senior assisted living and memory care facility at 4140 Dight Ave. South in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Transwestern’s Harrison Wagenseil and Erik Coglianese represented the seller, a local developer of multifamily, single-family and assisted living facilities, in the transaction. The total consideration for the sale set a high-water mark at over $200,000 per bed.

“In the senior and assisted living space, COVID had a particularly poignant impact on values and occupancy,” said Wagenseil. “The fact that Hiawatha was a new facility and nearly 100% occupied at the time of sale really improved our transaction outcome, and likewise the outcomes for its future residents.”

Built in 2019, Hiawatha Suites caters to residents looking for a memory care and high-acuity assisted living facility in an urban environment. The facility features en-suite bathrooms for each unit, a movie theater, library and communal dining facilities.

Transwestern’s Midwest Capital Markets team provides investment sales and financing solutions to investors across the commercial real estate spectrum and has expert team members who individually specialize in office, industrial, retail, multifamily and senior living assets, including independent living, assisted living, memory care, skilled nursing and continuing care retirement communities.
