“The community, which benefits from very limited new competition, is proximate to both large retail nodes and high-end residential areas in and around Watertown,” said Anderson. “LCB Senior Living, which has operated in the Boston market since its inception, will continue to operate the community.”

Developed in 2014,the community features 19 independent living units, 46 assisted living units and 25 memory care units; multiple spacious common areas, a large roof deck and state-of-the-art lifestyle technologies throughout the building.

“We are very pleased to complete this transaction,” commented LCB CEO Michael A. Stoller. “Watertown is a tremendous property and we’re looking forward to expanding our relationship with Harrison Street, who have been great partners with LCB for several years.”

According to research from the Newmark Seniors Housing Group, the Boston market is in a favorable position to succeed post-pandemic given the advantageous supply and demand fundamentals. As of the third quarter of 2020, there were only 474 units under construction which is the second lowest of any top 15 MSA, trailing only San Francisco.
