LANCASTER, CALIF. — Berkadia has secured $108.7 million in acquisition financing for Afton Property’s purchase of Sunset Ridge Apartments, an 800-unit, mixed-income, garden-style multifamily community in Lancaster.
Berkadia originated the 15-year, fixed-rate loan, which was purchased by Freddie Mac. The financing features eight years of interest-only payments through Freddie Mac’s Targeted Affordable Housing program. Mitch Sinberg, Matthew Robbins and Abigail Beauchamp of Berkadia’s Boca Raton, Fla., office secured the financing for the Los Angeles-based borrower.
Built in four separate 200-unit phases between 1986 and 1988, Sunset Ridge features 800 units in a mix of one-, two- and three-bedroom layouts with fully equipped kitchens, pantries, dishwashers and ceiling fans. Community amenities include a laundry facility, on-site maintenance, a fitness center and swimming pool.
