Investment Manager Targeting Foreign Investors Buys Its First Seniors-Housing Property

Black Salmon, a Miami investment manager, has completed its first acquisition in the seniors-housing sector, partnering with American House Senior Living Communities to pay $28 million, or nearly $257,000/unit, for the 109-unit Bentley Commons at Keene property in Keene, N.H.

The investment marks a broadening of Black Salmon's investment strategy, which so far focused on the office sector. It owns the Offices at Public Market office building, with 109,200 square feet in Emeryville, Calif., which it bought for $33 million, and the 444,644-sf BMO Plaza in Indianapolis, which it bought for $70 million.
