Merchants Capital Arranges Bridge Loan for 148-Unit Workforce Housing Complex in Aspen, Colorado

ASPEN, COLO. — Merchants Capital has provided a three-year bridge loan for Centennial Aspen, a 148-unit workforce housing community located in Aspen. The acquisition of the property is financed through Merchants Bank of Indiana on behalf of Birge & Held Asset Management.

Merchants Capital intends to further provide long-term, permanent financing for the project either through Fannie Me or Freddie Mac’s preservation platforms and through a syndication of new tax credits via Fannie, Freddie or HUD.

Situated at the base of Smugger Mountain at 100 Luke Short Court, Centennial Aspen features a land use restriction agreement that requires 100 percent of the rental units to be workforce housing. Built in 1986, the 11-building, three-story property features a mix of studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments with exterior entrances, exterior storage units and electric heat. Community amenities include an on-site laundry facility, office, a playground and assigned parking.
