CBRE’s Capital Markets group announced today that it has secured financing on behalf of Real Estate Capital Partners (“RECP”) for the financing of Crestone at Shadow Mountain Apartments (“Crestone”). Brian Eisendrath with CBRE’s Debt and Structured Finance team arranged a 5-year, full term interest only fixed rate loan of $16,811,000 (60% LTC), which was locked in at an interest rate of 3.30% through Freddie Mac. The 248-unit asset was acquired for $27,200,000 ($109,677/unit) from Scottsdale-based P.B. Bell, who will remain in-place as the property’s management company, and was represented by Tyler Anderson and Sean Cunningham with CBRE in Phoenix.
RECP’s Current Income Fund (the “Fund”) provided the equity for Crestone, which will provide investors a strong current rate of return in a high quality, well located project.
