The properties include Polonaise Assisted Living, 1500 W. Sonata Drive in Milwaukee, and Killarney Kourt Independent & Assisted Living, 8800 Shannon Lane in Sturtevant.

Covenant Communities, a nonprofit led by retiring Capri Senior Communities executive Glen Choban, plans to acquire 14 Capri-operated facilities located on nine campuses. The sites include Milwaukee, Kenosha, Germantown, Sturtevant, Waukesha, West Allis, Whitewater, Fond Du Lac and Sun Prairie.

Jim Tarantino, founder and principal of Capri Senior Communities, has a majority ownership interest in each of the properties.

The Wisconsin Health & Educational Facilities Authority board in June approved a resolution from Covenant Communities seeking up to $189 million in bond financing for the purchase of the properties.

The organization plans to execute a management agreement with Capri to continue operating the facilities.
