Office Property Slated for Conversion to Market-Rate Multifamily Asset

JLL secures $27.7 million in construction and permanent financing for 333 on the Park

ST. PAUL, MINN., Feb. 25, 2016 – On behalf of Timberland Partners, JLL’s Capital Markets experts today announced the firm has secured $27.7 million in financing for 333 on the Park, located in Saint Paul, Minnesota. The loan was provided via FHA’s 221(d)(4) sub rehab program. The loan, in conjunction with Federal and State Historic Tax Credits, will facilitate the substantial rehabilitation and conversion of the Gordon and Ferguson office building into 134 market rate multifamily units.
Managing Director Ken Dayton and Vice President Pat McMullen led the JLL team on the transaction.

“There is a great need for additional market-rate multifamily units in St. Paul, and the 221(d)(4) program makes capital more easily accessible for significant renovations,” said Dayton.
“We are excited to have JLL partner with us to provide financing on the adaptive reuse of what was an underutilized obsolete office building into apartment homes,” said Ryan Sailer, Vice President of Development at Timberland Partners. “This property will add even more life and vibrancy to Saint Paul’s historic Lowertown district.”
The loan features a loan-to-cost (LTC) ratio of 80.66 percent and a debt service coverage ratio (DSCR) of 1.20x. The development site is located adjacent to Mears Park and the new light rail station, just two blocks from the Mississippi River and the St. Paul Farmers Market, three blocks to the new St. Paul Saints Stadium and within walking distance to the Xcel Energy Center. The building originally constructed in 1913 is connected to the downtown skyway system and features underground parking and 6,197 square feet of commercial space.
