KeyBank Provides $25M in Financing for Chandler Village Apartments in Arizona
CHANDLER, ARIZ. — KeyBank Real Estate Capital (KBREC) has provided $25 million in fixed-rate, Fannie Mae financing for LEDG Capital, a real estate investment firm specializing in affordable housing throughout the country. The borrower will use loan proceeds to acquire and renovate Chandler Village Apartments, an affordable multifamily property in Chandler.
Robbie Lynn of KBREC’s Commercial Mortgage Group and Steve Sparks of KBREC’s Community Development Lending team structured the financing, which features a 17-year term followed by a 35-year amortization schedule.
Built in 1972 on eight acres, Chandler Village Apartments features 127 garden-style apartments spread across 11 two-story residential buildings with covered parking.
The property was encumbered by a land use restriction agreement (LURA) that expired on Dec. 31, 2019. As part of the acquisition and renovation, the Arizona Department of Housing plans to grant 4 percent Low-Income Housing Tax Credits (LIHTC) and execute a new LURA that will continue to restrict all units to tenants earning no more than 50 percent of the area median income. The new LIHTC restrictions will apply for a 15-year compliance period and a 15-year extended-use plan, likely ending in 2050.
