NEW YORK, NY – Dwight Capital and its affiliate REIT, Dwight Mortgage Trust, closed more than $207.5 million in real estate financings during the month of July. Among the transactions are HUD 223(f) loans for Division Street Station and The 95 Apartments, and a bridge loan for Tanglewood’s senior living portfolio.
Dwight provided a $19 million bridge refinance (April 2022) and subsequent $29.2 million HUD 223(f) loan (July 2022) for Division Street Station, a 126-unit apartment community located in Portland, Oregon. The bridge loan was closed in April 2022 to refinance existing bank debt and was repaid with the HUD loan in July 2022. The HUD refinance benefited from a reduction in the Green Mortgage Insurance Premium (“MIP”) fixed at 25 basis points because the property is ENERGY STAR certified.
Division Street Station consists of an apartment building and commercial space occupied by Green Zebra Grocery. Its amenities include a community lounge, rooftop terrace, bike storage, and energy-efficient stainless steel appliances. Dwight’s managing director, Josh Sasouness, initiated both transactions for the borrower, Urban Development Group.
Dwight also funded a $26.6 million HUD 223(f) loan for The 95 Apartments, a 224-unit garden-style apartment complex located in Las Vegas, Nevada. The property is comprised of 13 two-story buildings and a clubhouse/rental office with on-site management located on approximately 8 acres. All 95 apartments feature completed and planned unit renovations with high-end finishes and Energy Star-rated stainless steel appliances. Its facilities include a dog park, swimming pool, barbecue/picnic areas and storage areas.
The loan received a green MIP reduction thanks to The 95 Apartments obtaining ENERGY STAR certification. Josh Sasouness and Managing Director Keith Hoffman are behind this refinance, the second loan for this property and the fourth HUD transaction for Signature Management, a repeat client of Dwight.
Additionally, Dwight completed a $27 million acquisition bridge loan for a portfolio of four assisted living facilities and memory care facilities located in Jamestown and Frewsburg, New York: Tanglewood Manor, Memory Gardens, The Magnolia and Comfort Today. Together, the facilities include 293 beds and feature community amenities including fitness centers, garden courtyards, lounges, and walking paths.
Dwight’s Josh Levin originated this transaction for the borrower, Gary Rohinsky, CEO of Culture Care Senior Living. Rohinsky said, “At Culture Care, we believe in using our culture as the foundation to achieve our vision of enriching the lives of our seniors, their families, and the communities we serve through compassion, innovation, and customer service. We are grateful to be resuming an operation with a fantastic team that shares the same vision, and we are grateful to the team at Dwight Capital for helping us get there. We look forward to working with Dwight on future transactions.
