Construction began on the building, designed by Antunovich Associates, in April. Completion is slated for the second quarter of 2023. The HUD 221(d)(4) loan features a 40-year term and a 40-year amortization schedule.

The second loan totaled $55.6 million for the refinancing of Avenir Apartments in Chicago’s River West. Completed in 2019, the transit-oriented development features 196 units and 32,558 square feet of commercial space. Antunovich Associates also designed this property.
