KeyBank Secures $38.4M for Construction of Affordable Housing Asset in Austin
AUSTIN, TEXAS — KeyBank has secured $38.4 million for the construction of Del Valle Apartments, an affordable housing community in Austin. The project will be developed in a public-private partnership between NRP Group and Strategic Housing Finance Corp. of Austin County. Key’s Commercial Mortgage Group secured a $29.4 million Freddie Mac Tax Exempt Loan (TEL) that follows a three-year forward commitment with one, six-month extension. Upon conversion to a permanent loan, the TEL will carry a fixed interest rate and a 35-year amortization schedule. KeyBank Community Development Lending and Investment also provided a $9 million equity bridge loan for the development, which will consist of 302 units, 286 of which will be reserved for residents earning 60 percent or less of the area median income. The developers are also reserving seven units for households earning 40 percent of the AMI and nine units for households earning 30 percent. Kyle Kolesar and Jeff Rodman of KeyBank arranged the project’s financing. Navistone Partners and U.S. Bank also provided additional sources of financing for the development.
