JLL Announces First Dallas Financing through Fannie Mae DUS® Lender Program with Prudential

Debt and equity secured for The Ridge at Timberline Drive in Dallas submarket

DALLAS, Oct. 7, 2014 – JLL’s Capital Markets today announced the firm has secured another loan through its alliance with Prudential Mortgage Capital Company and their Fannie Mae DUS ® platform. The bridge loan for The Ridge at Timberline Drive, located in Dallas’ Grapevine submarket, was provided through Prudential’s Agency Gateway program, while E2M Partners provided joint-venture equity through their E2M Strategic Fund.

Executive Vice President Mark Brandenburg led the JLL team on the transaction. International Director Faron Thompson leads the firm’s partnership with Prudential and Fannie Mae’s DUS® lending program, which kicked off earlier this year.

“We continue to see a great deal of demand to secure financing for multifamily acquisitions, especially for value-add properties,” said Thompson. “We have renewed our commitment to providing our clients a whole host of financing solutions through our alliance with Prudential, and strengthened our current services as a Freddie Mac Program Plus® lender.”

Added Brandenburg, “This favorably-structured loan blends a nice mix of debt and equity while its adjustable rate allows the sponsor to take advantage of today’s strong debt markets.”

The Ridge at Timberline totals 376-units and features 38 residential buildings. Amenities include a clubhouse, business center, fitness center, gazebo, two swimming pools, barbeque grills and a dog park. Interior renovation plans include upgrading the unit interiors with new flooring, modern appliances and countertops, new cabinet doors and upgraded nickel fixtures. The owner also plans to refresh the building exteriors, upgrade the common area workout facility and build a new pool, lounge area and renovate the dog park.
