KeyBank Secures $13.7M in Financing for Affordable Housing Development in Washington

by Amy Works

EVERETT, WASH. — KeyBank Commercial Development Lending and Investment (CDLI) has arranged $13.7 million in construction financing on behalf of Compass Health to develop Broadway Permanent Supportive Housing, an affordable housing property in Everett. The borrower is a community-based healthcare agency that integrates behavioral health and medical care services to support clients.

Situated next to the Compass Health campus, the project will be a five-story, 82-unit permanent supportive housing facility that will provide services for mentally ill homeless people. The facility will feature four floors of housing above 3,000 square feet of commercial space with offices for services, management and administration. All units, which will include kitchens and baths, will be 388-square-foot studios, except for a three-bedroom manager’s unit.

Residents will participate in a coordinated chemical dependency or mental health treatment plan and will have access to case management connecting them with supportive services on-site and at the Bailer Center facility, located next door. A portion (66) of the units will be limited to people earning 30 percent or less of the area median income (AMI), including eight vouchers reserved for homeless veterans, and 15 units will be allocated for people earning 50 percent of AMI or less.

Brett Sheehan of KeyBank’s Community Development Lending Group structured the financing. National Equity Fund provided tax credit equity for the project.
