Last week, Gazit announced that Royal Senior Care had reached an agreement to sell the majority of its senior facilities — a total of 1,310 units in the United States. The Atrium was part of that portfolio.

The company said the deal would bring a gain of $18 million with net proceeds of $70 million.

The Gazit affiliate had purchased the property for just $4.5 million in June 2004 from Sunrise Assisted Living. Gazit owns more than 600 properties in 20 countries, with a total asset value of around $19 billion, according to the company’s Web site.
