Nelson Construction and Development is excited to share the latest senior housing investment opportunity with you. Scheduled to begin construction in Summer 2022, the community will be located in the Prairie Trail district in Ankeny, IA and will benefit from all of the amenities and access Prairie Trail has to offer.


The development will consist of 126 apartment homes for Assisted Living and Memory Care residents, offering premium unit sizes and finishes not already found in the market, as well as our popular Carefree Living option where residents can live completely independently or choose to add any or all of our services ala carte.


Nelson will be raising up to $11MM in limited partner preferred equity.

All investments earn a 14% annual return with half (7%) paid current each quarter. Investments of $1MM or more (Class Prime) will be paid in a preferred position and will also receive an additional 10% of their initial investment when their principal is returned.

All unpaid returns, along with the principal investment, will be returned at the sale or refinance of the property estimated to occur within 3 to 5 years.
