BRENTWOOD, TN--(Marketwired - Feb 1, 2016) - The Heritage at Brentwood, a community managed by Life Care Services™, an LCS® Company, today announced that Middle Tennessee-based investment group, Heritage Investment Partners -- led by John Cooper, Nashville developer and at-large member of Metro Council, and John Stone, lawyer at Nashville-based White & Reasor, PLC and local business leader -- has purchased a 70 percent majority stake in the senior living community from Westminster Capital, an Illinois-based company. The corresponding debt in the transaction was financed through a loan from the senior living community's new local banking partner, Pinnacle Financial Partners.

Harpeth Green Properties, LLC, also owned by Cooper and Stone, and LCS will remain minority partners of The Heritage at Brentwood, each holding a 15 percent ownership position.

"With their team at Heritage Investment Partners, John Cooper and John Stone have played a pivotal role in supporting the growth of our community and have been integral to our success," said Judy Good, Marketing Director at The Heritage at Brentwood. "We are delighted that they are deepening their support and involvement as The Heritage at Brentwood continues to grow and add to the amenities and programs we offer our residents and neighbors."

Life Care Services will continue to manage The Heritage at Brentwood, and the change in ownership will not affect the community's residents, employees, operations or upcoming developments. The Heritage at Brentwood's planned expansion includes the Redbud building with 97 new apartments; the 11,000 square-foot HealthyLife™ Center featuring a pool, fitness room and juice bar; a 350-person auditorium; an assisted living building; dining room renovations; and expanded maintenance facilities.

"Williamson County is a thriving and attractive retirement destination, and I am passionate about ensuring Middle Tennessee seniors have a great place to live. We look forward to exploring new ways we can enhance this active community that an increasing number of seniors are confidently calling home."
