ATLANTA — Capital One has provided a $23.1 million Fannie Mae loan for the acquisition, renovation and expansion of Edgewood Court Apartments, a 204-unit affordable housing community in Atlanta’s Edgewood neighborhood. Evan Williams of Capital One arranged the 16-year, fixed-rate loan with a 35-year amortization schedule on behalf of the borrower, Jonathan Rose Cos. In addition to renovating the existing units, the firm plans to build 18 new units and a new community center. As part of the transaction, the HUD Section 8 contract on the original units was renewed for 20 years. The project received an allocation of 4 percent Low Income Housing Tax Credits issued by the Georgia Department of Community Affairs and tax-exempt bonds issued by Invest Georgia. Constructed in 1950, Edgewood Court was last renovated more than 35 years ago. Jonathan Rose Cos. will add a fitness center and computer lab in the new community center, refresh building facades, replace roofs and gutters, update unit electrical and HVAC systems, renovate kitchens and baths and create a community garden and playground.
