KeyBank Provides $10M Construction Loan for Renovation of Affordable Housing Property in Wichita

Shadyway Plaza includes 100 units reserved for elderly and disabled residents at 60 percent of the area median income.

WICHITA, KAN. — KeyBank Community Development Lending and Investment has provided a $10 million construction-to-permanent loan to Steele Properties for the acquisition and renovation of Shadyway Plaza in Wichita. Steele Properties, based in Denver, is a real estate investment company that acquires, rehabilitates and constructs affordable housing. Built in 1979, Shadyway Plaza serves elderly and disabled residents. The seven-story building includes 100 one-bedroom units, all of which are income-restricted under low-income housing tax credit regulations at 60 percent of area median income. Monroe Group Ltd., Steele’s sister company, will manage the property. Steele plans to spend $3.7 million on renovations, including a new roof and doors as well as upgrades to the security features, HVAC system, community room and common area lighting.

In addition to the $10 million loan, financing included 4 percent tax credits allocated by the Kansas Housing Resources Corp., tax-exempt bonds issued by the city of Wichita and $4 million of tax credit equity provided by the National Development Council. Sarah Geis of KeyBank structured the financing. The 4 percent tax credit is designed to subsidize 30 percent of the low-income unit costs in a project.
