by Kristin Harlow

TINLEY PARK, ILL. — Berkadia has arranged a $10.6 million PACE construction loan for The Magnuson, a 144-unit, ground-up multifamily project in the Chicago suburb of Tinley Park. Jason Bond of Berkadia arranged the loan through PACE Loan Group on behalf of the borrower, Illinois-based One Magnuson Lane LLC. Matthew McCormack represented PACE Loan Group on an internal basis. The Illinois Energy Conservation Authority NFP assisted in closing the financing.

The property is currently under construction, but a timeline for completion was not provided. The project will consist of four four-story buildings and a clubhouse.

Introduced in Illinois in 2019, C-PACE provides long-term, fixed-rate funding to private building owners for energy efficiency, renewable energy, water conservation, electric vehicle charging and resiliency projects to be installed in both existing and new commercial properties. The C-PACE efforts at The Magnuson are expected to provide roughly $311,000 in savings over the 30-year financing term, while also saving more than 2.3 million gallons of water per year.
