NEW YORK – August 18, 2017 – Berkadia announced today the closing of $221 million in financing for Brookdale Senior Living Inc. Berkadia’s Managing Directors Heidi Brunet and Christopher Fenton of the Seniors Housing & Healthcare team originated the transaction through Fannie Mae. The financing closed on July 11.
