Frontier Estates, one the UK’s leading developers specialising in the healthcare sector, has completed a pre-let and forward funding agreement of four premium retirement homes.

Frontier were advised by Colliers International.

The four new schemes in Watford, Bedford, Flitwick and Letchworth will provide a total of 308 rooms for One Housing Group who have entered into new 30 year indexed leases on the properties which will be completed in 2019.

The new developments have been forward funded by Aviva’s REALM fund for a total commitment of approximately £70m.

Adam Lenton, Head of Healthcare for Colliers International commented “Working with John Knowles in our Capital Markets team, we were delighted to bring together three such strong entities specialising in the sector to create this deal”.
