McKinley Secures Long-Term Financing on Michigan and Florida Multifamily ProjectsOctober 27, 2016
McKinley announced today that it has secured long term financing from Fannie Mae and Berkadia for State Street Village, a newly built market rate apartment community adjacent to the grounds of the University of Michigan athletic campus in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The newly built 78-unit apartment community was leased up in record time, and is part of several communities McKinley has built in Ann Arbor and Fenton over the past several years, all of which have been financed with Fannie Mae and Berkadia.
"We continue our core strategy to secure very favorable long-term fixed rate financing for our generational Multifamily holdings," offered Jim Willett, Senior Vice President and Managing Director - Finance. "We have essentially completed our efforts to secure very favorable long term debt in this low interest rate environment for our existing Multifamily portfolio, and now our focus has turned to securing similar favorable long-term financing for our acquisition pipeline," added Willett.
Additionally, McKinley also announced today that it had secured long-term financing for Bayside Villas and Bayside Villas East, both located in South Pasadena, Florida. The communities which total 70 units are recent acquisitions and were redeveloped to become part of the McKinley Beach brand, a luxury collection of bayfront and beachfront apartment communities located on the barrier islands of Pinellas County, Florida. Financing was provided by The PrivateBank. The properties were leased up in record time and the successful lease ups allowed McKinley to move quickly and secure favorable long-term financing ahead of schedule.
"Jim and his team have done a superb job engineering an outstanding mix of debt sources including HUD, Fannie Mae, and commercial bank financing, which collectively have delivered a fortress position allowing us to achieve our long-term goals for our Multifamily portfolio. We have an extraordinary collection of Multifamily assets located in Florida, Michigan, Indiana, Illinois and Georgia, and the work Jim has done has allowed us to position that portfolio for the long-term on a base of strong recurring cash flow and liquidity," added Albert M. Berriz, CEO, Managing Member and Co-Owner of McKinley.
