TOLEDO, Ohio, July 31, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Welltower Inc. (NYSE: WELL) today announced that is has acquired five purpose-built, private pay seniors housing properties recently developed and managed by Sunrise Senior Living.

The communities are located in dense infill locations within the Washington, D.C., San Francisco and San Diego metropolitan areas and are leasing up rapidly. Two communities are eight and nine story mid-rise buildings in the affluent Washington D.C. submarkets of Chevy Chase and Bethesda.
