New York, NY — March 14, 2022 — Lument has closed a $17.9 million proprietary bridge loan to facilitate the acquisition and renovation of Parks at Colonnade, a 211-unit garden-style multifamily apartment community in San Antonio, Texas. Phil Frasca led the transaction for Lument.
“Lument’s proprietary bridge loan proved to be an ideal solution for this strategic acquisition, as it met the sponsor’s desire for a 75% loan-to-purchase term and allowed for 100% of CapEx financing to be used on renovations, all while keeping investor returns high in a very competitive market,” said Frasca.
The non-recourse bridge loan has a low interest rate and three-year term, all of which is interest only, and two one-year extensions. In addition to facilitating the acquisition, the closing provides approximately $1.8 million for renovations that will be used to upgrade infrastructure, exteriors and amenities, and unit interiors. As part of the renovations, 100% of the unit interiors will be updated and the community will be renamed and rebranded to appeal to a tenant base seeking modern yet affordable housing.
Originally constructed in 1970 and acquired by the seller in 2018, Parks at Colonnade consists of 31 two-story low-rise apartment buildings housing 18 studio units, 86 one-bedroom units, 94 two-bedroom units, and 13 three-bedroom units. Notable property amenities include a clubhouse, two swimming pools, carports, and a dog park.
