New York, NY — September 12, 2022 — Lument recently announced the closing of a $15.4 million bridge loan to facilitate the acquisition and renovation of Village on University, a 133-unit garden-style multifamily community in Denton, Texas. Lument Director John Sloot led the transaction.

“It was a pleasure working with this experienced sponsor to secure a short-term loan at a highly competitive interest-only rate,” said Sloot. “This funding solution met all of their goals and allowed them to acquire a value-add multifamily housing community in a timely manner.”

The bridge loan features a three-year term with two 12-month extension options and interest-only for the entire loan term. The loan structure includes approximately $1.8 million in CapEx funds for upgrades, including electrical, plumbing, flooring, kitchen, and bathroom interior improvements. Planned exterior upgrades include a new fitness center, new media center, security upgrades, and landscaping.

Village on University’s 133 apartments feature floor plans that range from studios to four-bedroom units. The property was built in 1968 and consists of 12 residential buildings and a leasing office on a land parcel of approximately 6.9 acres.
