FilBen to open 200-bed assisted living facility: Braemar at Wallkill; Cain Brothers served as underwriter for $35.5 million in financing
December 09, 2014 - Design / Build
Braemar at Wallkill was constructed and developed by FilBen Group, and will be operated and managed by FilBen Group. Braemar Living is the new brand for FilBen Group owned and operated facilities.
"Braemar at Wallkill is a state-of-the-art facility built with Adirondack-style accents in keeping with the area, and employing our innovative approach to creating a resident experience at a higher standard," said Richard Filaski, managing director at FilBen Group. "Properties managed by FilBen benefit from decades of 'smart programming' experience that bring together health and wellness, and engaging lifestyle programs."
The creation of Braemar at Wallkill reflects the company's dual-strategy of offering both third-party management services and an end-to-end approach to the assisted living business. FilBen Group also operates Braemar at Medford in Medford, and is in development stages of a new assisted living facility in Fishkill. Additionally, it plans to open The Brielle at Seaview in Staten Island in partnership with the Met Council in 2015.
Cain Brothers served as sole underwriter on $35.5 million in financing for the development and construction of the facility.
