Keybank Originates $247.8M in Financing for Student Housing Property in Los Angeles
LOS ANGELES — Keybank Real Estate Capital has originated a $247.8 million Freddie Mac first mortgage loan for The Lorenzo in Los Angeles. The 913-unit, Class A, mid-rise student housing property was developed in 2015. The property is 95 percent leased to students attending University of Southern California, Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising, and Loyola Law School. The remaining units are reserved for tenants earning 50 percent or less of the area median income.
The Lorenzo features a three-story fitness center with rock climbing walls, basketball courts and an indoor jogging track. Additionally, the property offers an on-site restaurant with room service, media rooms, study rooms and libraries catering to the different colleges, as well as multiple swimming pools, saunas and sand volleyball courts.
Robert Prouty of Key’s Commercial Mortgage Group arranged the fixed-rate loan with a seven-year interest-only term. The undisclosed sponsor used the loan to refinance existing debt.
