WASHINGTON, D.C. – August 28, 2018 – Holliday Fenoglio Fowler, L.P. (HFF) announces joint venture equity and debt financing totaling $26.031 million for the acquisition of Falling Creek Apartments, a 348-unit apartment community in the North Chesterfield submarket of Richmond, Virginia.
The HFF team worked on behalf of Brick Lane to arrange $6.696 million in joint venture equity through National Property REIT Corporation (NPRC). This transaction represents the first partnership between Brick lane and NPRC. In addition, the HFF team worked on behalf of the new partnership to secure a $19.335 million, 12-year, fixed-rate loan through Freddie Mac’s CME Program, which funded the remainder of the acquisition costs. The securitized loan will be serviced by HFF, a Freddie Mac Multifamily Approved Seller/Servicer for Conventional Loans.
Falling Creek Apartments is located at 2530 Marina Drive just off Route 301 in North Chesterfield, which positions the community within minutes of Interstates 95 and 295 and Highway 288. The property is situated within the Chesterfield County school district and is less than 10 miles south of downtown Richmond. Falling Creek Apartments consists of 31 two-story buildings encompassing a mix of studio, one- and two-bedroom townhome and flat-style units.
The HFF debt and equity placement team representing the borrower consisted of Jamie Leachman.
“Falling Creek aligns with the core strategy of both Brick Lane and NPRC, both of which seek well-located properties that can benefit from institutional ownership and operations,” Leachman said. “It was a privilege to bring together both groups and assist in their continued success.”
