Terravet Real Estate Solutions Acquires Seneca Hill Animal Hospital and Boarding Facility
Bala Cynwyd, PA (October 31st, 2018) – Terravet Real Estate Solutions, a real estate group which focuses on the acquisition of veterinary operated real estate, recently acquired the Seneca Hill Animal Hospital and Spa real estate (“Seneca”) in Great Falls, VA in Q4 of 2018. The approximately 24,000 sq. ft. facility is half general practice, half boarding facility and has been operating in the D.C. suburbs for more than 30 years.
The real estate was sold at the same time the practice was sold to Community Veterinary Partners (“CVP”), a growing corporate operator of veterinary practices. “We were eager to acquire the real estate associated with a strong general practice and premiere boarding facility located in one of the most affluent suburbs of the United States and were delighted to partner with CVP as a tenant,” said Daniel Eisenstadt, Chairman and CEO of Terravet Real Estate Solutions.
Janice Homan, former co-owner of both the Seneca Hill practice and real estate, was pleased with the clean manner in which she was able to transition her assets. “When I decided to sell my practice to a corporate group, my goal was to have an exit strategy that was clean and complete…(Terravet) offered me a fair price for the building, split closing costs with me equally, and was very helpful when I had to work through some non-traditional bond and easement issues,” she continued. “I would recommend Terravet to anyone looking to sell their veterinary real estate.”
The Seneca Hill Animal Hospital is AAHA-accredited and has repeatedly been voted one of the best veterinary hospitals in the D.C. area by Washingtonian Magazine. The Seneca property was acquired by Terravet Real Estate’s Fund II, which plans to invest committed debt and equity capital to acquire approximately $225 Million in veterinary operated real estate.

The acquisition is a perfect example of the type of property that Terravet acquires and the types of veterinary operators with whom Terravet looks to partner with as tenants,” said Daniel Eisenstadt, Founder and CEO of Terravet Real Estate Solutions.

Terravet was able to negotiate a new lease with Pathway Partners that commenced upon Terravet’s closing on the purchase of the property.

The practice is a full service veterinary emergency facility located between two commercial retail corridors in the North Little Rock submarket and is less than a mile from the McCain Mall, the premier shopping area in the Little Rock area.

Terravet Real Estate Solutions Acquires Real Estate of DVM 360’s Specialty Hospital of the Year
Unique real estate arrangement allowed for the development of groundbreaking facility.
BALA CYNWYD, Pa. (Aug. 29, 2018) – Terravet Real Estate Solutions, an internally managed real estate fund that focuses on the acquisition of veterinary operated real estate, recently acquired the Wheat Ridge Animal Hospital (WRAH) building in Wheat Ridge, Colo., in Q2 of 2018. The property is a state-of-the-art, 37,000-square-foot purpose-built specialty and emergency animal hospital that was developed by the hospital’s owners and affiliates. The property has 19 years remaining of its initial lease term and was acquired at a price that was very close to its construction cost.
“The opportunity to add the WRAH facility to our portfolio of veterinary real estate was a no-brainer,” said Daniel Eisenstadt, chairman and CEO of Terravet Real Estate Solutions. “The hospital has been in the area for over 60 years and has established itself as the premier destination for specialized and emergency veterinary medicine in the NW Denver metropolitan area. The facility that the WRAH ownership group developed is a huge asset to recruiting and driving growth in their specialized medicine practices and will position them as the market leader in veterinary medicine for decades to come.”
Donald Ostwald, Wheat Ridge Animal Hospital co-founder and partner in the entity that developed the hospital, took great assurance in knowing that Terravet was waiting in the wings to acquire the real estate project. “We had a very particular vision for the construction and development of this hospital based on the constraints we experienced in our last facility,” he said. “The ability to maintain control of the project and not hand it off to a developer, knowing that Terravet was committed to buying the completed project, allowed us to have confidence throughout the process and avoid lofty development fees.
WRAH took home the 2018 dvm360 Hospital Design Competitions ;Specialty Hospital of the Year” award, where judges specifically praised the AAHA-accredited hospital for efficiently mixing general practice, specialty referral cases, and 24/7 emergency services all under one – massive – roof. Wheat Ridge Animal Hospital is home to nearly 200 employees and is part of Ethos Veterinary Health.
Wheat Ridge was the first property acquired in Terravet Real Estate Fund II, which will use leverage on committed capital raised to acquire approximately $200 million in veterinary operated real estate over the next 24 months.
