HFF Arranges $65M Refinancing Loan for Mixed-Use Development in Arlington
ARLINGTON, VA. — HFF has arranged $65 million in financing for Tellus, a 254-unit, 16-story mixed-use development in Arlington’s Courthouse neighborhood. Tellus is located at 2009 14th St. N. two blocks from the Courthouse Metro. Completed in 2014, the transit-oriented property offers views of downtown Washington, D.C., and has studio, one- and two-bedroom units averaging 789 square feet each. The LEED Gold-certified property features a rooftop swimming pool, indoor yoga studio, fitness center, business center, oversized courtyard, cyber café, 273-space parking garage and more than 13,300 square feet of street-level retail and office space. At closing, the residential portion of the property was 93 percent occupied. Sue Carras, Walter Coker and Brian Crivella of HFF worked on behalf of the developer, a joint venture between Jefferson Apartment Group and Erkiletian Development Co., to secure the 15-year, fixed-rate loan through TIAA-CREF. Loan proceeds were used to replace construction debt on the property, which is managed by JAG Management Co.
