Interra Negotiates $7.8M Sale of Affordable Housing Portfolio in Chicago
CHICAGO — Interra Realty has negotiated the $7.8 million sale of a two-property affordable housing portfolio in Chicago’s Washington Park neighborhood. The properties, spanning 99 units, include the two-building Michigan Corners and the six-building Michigan Plaza. The buildings were constructed in the late 1990s. David Goss, Jon Morgan and Lucas Fryman of Interra represented the buyer, Jarrell Housing Group, as well as the seller, St. Edmund’s Redevelopment Corp. Jarrell Housing Group plans to improve the properties and maintain the units as affordable for renters earning up to 60 percent of the area median income. Jarrell agreed to assume the seller’s existing city of Chicago and Illinois Housing Development Authority loans when it purchased the property. The buyer also obtained tax credits from CREA LLC, an Indianapolis-based full-service tax syndicator that specializes in affordable housing, for the planned renovations.
