TEMPE, Ariz. — Pacific Retirement Services (PRS) has received $252 million in bond financing for the construction of Mirabella at ASU, a 20-story continuing care retirement community (CCRC) on the campus of Arizona State University in Tempe.
Once completed, Mirabella at ASU will feature 252 units across 500,000 square feet.
Cain Brothers was sole underwriter on the bonds, issued in partnership with University Realty, the real estate affiliate of ASU. University Realty contributed land equity and local real estate expertise and will partner with PRS in Mirabella’s governance and marketing. The ASU affiliation will allow residents access to the university’s academic, sporting and cultural programming.
Cain Brothers also assisted PRS in securing seed capital to cover pre-development expenses.
Mirabella at ASU is the third project under the Mirabella brand, PRS’ luxury, urban, high-rise CCRC concept.
PRS is the developer and contributed funds for start-up capital and financial support. Both parties provided further support through the purchase of subordinated debt. PRS will operate the community. A development timeline was not released.
