Chicago, IL – July 13, 2020 – American Street Capital (“ASC”) announced today that it has secured a $4.95 million permanent acquisition loan for a 85-unit multifamily building located in Chicago’s Marquette Park Neighborhood.

Encompassing an entire block of Marquette Ave, the three-story courtyard style multifamily building was constructed in 1928 and renovated in 2019.  It is located on Chicago’s southwest side in close proximity to public transportation and Chicago’s Midway airport.  The building’s unit mix consists of 74 one bedroom and 11 two bedroom apartments with a combination of market and subsidy tenants.  The asset was 92 percent occupied at closing.
