JLL secures senior construction financing and mezzanine capital for 2202 8th Avenue

SEATTLE, Jan. 12, 2016 – Seattle’s growing tech hub continues to draw demand for multifamily assets providing fertile ground for investors. On behalf of Clise Properties, Inc., JLL’s Capital Markets experts today announced that the firm has secured senior construction and mezzanine financing for the $284 million development of 2202 8th Avenue, a 40-story luxury multifamily development in Seattle’s South Lake Union neighborhood. Bank of the Ozarks provided the senior construction loan.  EverWest Real Estate Partners, in partnership with Diamond Realty, a division of Mitsubishi Corporation, provided the mezzanine loan. The mezzanine financing marks the Japanese lender’s first significant investment in Seattle, demonstrating the strength of the market and 2202 8th Avenue’s high-profile status.
