NEW YORK, June 13, 2022–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Dwight Capital and its affiliate Commercial Mortgage REIT, Dwight Mortgage Trust, closed over $556.4 million in real estate financings in May. Among Dwight’s transactions are bridge loans for a multifamily portfolio located in Michigan and two multifamily properties located in Oregon.
Dwight provided a $154.84 million acquisition bridge loan for six garden-style apartment complexes located in Detroit, Lansing and Grand Rapids, Michigan for New Jersey-based Valleytree Partners. Properties in the portfolio are Capitol Village Apartments, Carriage Hill Apartments, Carriage Park Apartments, Macomb Manor Apartments, Newburgh Square Apartments and Northview Harbor Apartments. Community amenities in the portfolio include a fitness center, tennis court, basketball court, volleyball court, pavilions and barbecue areas.
The purpose of this bridge loan is to provide both acquisition financing and financing for capital improvements, including improving 50% of the units in the portfolio. General director Adam Sasouness is behind the transaction, which was brokered by Marvin Jeremias of Crossmark Capital and Aaron Moll of Berkadia.
General director Josh Sasouness bridge loans closed for two properties in Oregon for the same sponsor, Marathon Management: a refinancing of $59.1 million for Willamette Estates and a refinancing of $48 million for Arris Apartments. Willamette Estates is a 358-unit garden-style apartment complex located in Salem, Oregon. The property was built in two phases in 2005 and 2011 and consists of 31 two- and three-story apartment buildings located on 17.7 acres. Proceeds from the loan will be used to improve capital assets and refinance existing debt.
Arris Apartments is a 152-unit mixed-use apartment community located in Portland, Oregon. The project was built in two phases in 2020 and 2021. One of the buildings includes 30 affordable residential units reserved for tenants earning no more than 80% of the region’s median income. Property amenities include community lounges, fitness centers, rental offices, and rooftop terraces with barbecue grills. The purpose of the bridge loan is to pay off existing construction debt and allow the sponsor to complete the rental of the property.
