Hunt Capital Provides $13.4M in LIHTC for New Affordable Housing Community North of Orlando
DELAND, FLA. — Hunt Capital Partners has provided $13.4 million in low-income housing tax credits (LIHTC) for the development of The Pines, a 100-unit affordable housing community in DeLand, roughly 50 miles north of Orlando. Hunt Capital Partners structured the funding through its multi-investor fund, Hunt Capital Partners Tax Credit Fund 27, on behalf of the project developer, Roundstone Development LLC. The Pines will offer a mix of one- to four-bedroom units, all set aside for households earning up to 40 and 60 percent of the area median income (AMI). Five units will have a preference for “Special Needs Households,” or households consisting of families considered to be homeless, survivors of domestic violence, persons with disabilities or youth aging out of foster care. Community amenities will include onsite management, a clubhouse with a community kitchen, business center, library, fitness center, laundry room, swimming pool and a playground. The development cost for the project is $18.6 million. Bradley Construction Co. Inc. is the general contractor for the project, Brian Rumsey is the architect and Sunchase American Ltd. is the property manager. Construction on The Pines began in December and is slated for completion in January 2019.
