TVOR Receives Bond Financing for Phase 2

December 24, 2014

The Village at Orchard Ridge—A  National Lutheran Community (TVOR) in Winchester, Va., received its tax-exempt bond financing on Thursday, December 18, 2014 for approximately $67,835,000. Following such a successful opening of Phase 1, this is another milestone in advancing the construction timeline for the not-for-profit continuing care retirement community (CCRC)’s Phase 2 of construction.

            The bonds will fund construction costs related to Phase 2, which is slated to begin in January 2015. TVOR’s Phase 2 of construction will feature the addition of 104 independent living apartments, 10 skilled nursing suites, a 15,000 square foot Wellness Center with an indoor pool and a 150-seat dining expansion.  The bonds will also partially fund 18 independent living cottages that will be available for occupancy beginning in January 2015.

           This financing, through partnerships with Hamlin Capital Management, LLC and Crosspoint Capital, will feature a series of four, tax-exempt bonds providing a blend of variable and fixed-rate debt for the project. 

            “The financing for the TVOR Phase 2 construction will provide a continued array of services to seniors in the Winchester community,” National Lutheran Communities & Services’ Chief Financial Officer Michael Brady said. “We are thankful to our partners at Hamlin Capital Management and look forward to continuing to meet seniors’ future needs.”

            Joe Bridy, Partner and Portfolio Manager for Hamlin Capital Management, is pleased to partner with National Lutheran Communities & Services (NLCS) and TVOR once again.

          “Hamlin Capital Management is excited to grow our partnership with NLCS and provide innovative financial solutions that will help facilitate the build out of TVOR’s campus,” Bridy said.
