The portfolio, consisting of 214 units scattered over 20 buildings, is located on Chicago’s south side in various neighborhoods such as Bronzeville, Kenwood, and Southshore.  The sponsor, a Chicago based REIT, originally acquired the assets distressed and completed substantial capital improvements to lease-up and stabilize the multifamily buildings.  The portfolio includes a mix of market and subsidy tenants and was over 95% occupied at closing.

Due to programmatical guidelines, the portfolio was separated into three separate loans based on the geography and size of the buildings.  Each loan was structured with a 12-year fixed term including 5-years of interest only on 30-year amortization schedule.  The loans were placed with a correspondent agency lender.
