Borrower: FC Highlands LLC

Lender: Midcap Funding VII LLC

Details: The owner of the Highlands of Memphis senior nursing facility at 3549 Norriswood Ave. near the University of Memphis has filed a $13 million loan on the property.

FC Highlands LLC, a single-purpose entity related to Alpharetta, Ga.-based Formation Capital, secured the loan July 13 through Midcap Funding VII LLC.

The company bought the 280-bed facility for $7.3 million in May 2009 from Wesley Highland Nursing Homes Inc.

Built in 1977, the 56,913-square-foot facility sits on 1.37 acres at the southeast corner of South Highland Street and Norriswood Avenue, just west of the University of Memphis campus. The Shelby County Assessor of Property’s 2012 appraisal is $3.6 million.

Christina K. Firth signed the trust deed as manager of FC Highlands.

Formation Capital executive Michael Jones told The Daily News at the time of the purchase in 2009 that the 30-year-old building, which underwent some renovations in 2005, was in good shape, although some improvements were planned.

“We’re excited to have closed on the property,” he said at the time. “We think it’s a wonderful building and it’s a nice addition to our portfolio.”

The transaction also included an assignment of leases and rents from FC Highlands to Midcap Funding.
