by Kristin Harlow

MILWAUKEE — Associated Bank has structured a $6 million construction loan and $9.6 million in Low-Income Housing Tax Credit equity for the renovation of Townhomes at Carver in Milwaukee. The affordable housing community consists of 35 buildings. The Housing Authority of the City of Milwaukee originally developed the 122-unit property in 2001. Of the 122 units, 102 are restricted to households earning 30 to 60 percent of the area median income and 20 units are market rate. Additionally, 51 units benefit from a project-based Section 8 contract.

Improvements will include new flooring; updates of bathroom and kitchen cabinets, countertops and fixtures; replacement of furnaces, air conditioners and hot water heaters; and window, siding and roofing updates. Completion is slated for 2023. Stefanie Bachrach and Teresa Rubio of Associated Community Development LLC, the bank’s community development corporation, managed the current loan and equity closings.
