New York, NY — April 27, 2022 — Lument recently announced the closing of a $16 million proprietary bridge loan to acquire and renovate The Palazzo, an 92-unit garden-style apartment community in San Antonio, Texas. Lument’s Phil Frasca led the transaction.
“It was a pleasure to work with this client to secure the funds to acquire and complete capital improvements on this multi-building complex,” said Frasca. “Using this funding, the borrower is able to construct a concise plan to add value to this 2000s vintage property and transform it into a modern 2020s apartment community.”
The $16 million bridge loan includes $1.3 million for renovations and features a variable interest rate and a three-year term, with two 12-month extension options. Planned improvements include upgrades to the property’s exterior and common areas, as well as repairs to its parking lot, swimming pool, and clubhouse.
The Palazzo was originally constructed as condominiums in 2008, but due to the poor economy at the time, only eight out of 100 units were sold upon completion. The remaining 92 units were converted into rentals and consist of 20 one-bedrooms, 48 two-bedrooms, and 24 three-bedroom floor plans. The community is made up of 10 buildings situated on 4.3 acres. Its amenities include a leasing office, fitness center, business center, and dog park.
