We also plan to invest significant capital to improve the communities. We are excited about the scale this acquisition provides for our rapidly growing land-lease portfolio, and we continue to seek opportunities to acquire communities nationwide.”

Joel Harper, one of the sellers of the portfolio, said, “Due to the multi-generational ownership of these communities, this was a complex transaction and GCP was uniquely positioned to accommodate our needs. Additionally, GCP’s reputation in the industry as a first-class owner-operator provided us with the conviction that they were the right fit for our employees and residents.”
