Welltower sold a Parkland senior housing facility for $55.7 million, a steep discount from its last sale price nearly five years ago.

Toledo, Ohio-based real estate investment trust sold the 349,250-square-foot facility at 9401 Aston Gardens Court to Kayne Anderson Capital Advisors for $159 per square foot, records show.

The facility, Aston Gardens Assisted Living Parkland, last sold for $78 million in November 2015, records show. The senior housing facility was built in 2002, records show.

Stocks of REITs with South Florida senior housing projects in their portfolios and those of other senior housing developers are taking a nosedive due to coronavirus, and some industry experts believe there will be signs of distress in the coming months.

In late April, Healthpeak Properties sold a senior living facility in Lantana for 60 percent less than its last sale price in 2006.

Los Angeles-based Kayne Anderson has been buying properties in South Florida during the coronavirus pandemic.

In April, Kayne Anderson Capital Advisors bought a medical office complex in Lake Worth Beach for $7.3 million. The company also bought a self-storage facility in West Palm Beach in April for $14.5 million.

Kayne Anderson, an alternative investment management firm, has $6 billion in assets under management. It focuses on infrastructure, real estate, credit and private equity, according to its website. The firm has an office in Boca Raton.
