JLL Secures $24.5 Million in HUD Financing for Affordable Housing in Maryland

Tabco Towers primed to undergo significant rehabilitation renovations

On behalf of Wishrock Investment Group, JLL's Capital Markets experts today announced the firm has secured $24.5 million in acquisition and rehabilitation financing for Tabco Towers, an existing 200-unit affordable age restricted senior housing property located in Towson, Maryland. The 40-year fully-amortizing loan was provided via FHA's 221(d)(4) sub rehab program. The transaction also featured significant renovation costs which make the building more handicap accessible and energy efficient.

Managing Director Tim Leonhard led the JLL team on the transaction

"The need for affordable housing in many parts of our country is at an all-time high and we were pleased to have the opportunity to work with Wishrock and the State of Maryland to preserve this crucial asset, which otherwise could have been easily converted to a student housing property and lost as affordable housing stock forever," said Leonhard.

Added Bryan Shumway, Wishrock's Director of Development, "Tabco Towers provides essential housing for the Towson community and by securing this loan, we will not only maintain the building as affordable, but will also be able to pursue significant renovations to improve accessibility and quality of life for residents."

The loan features a 90 percent loan-to-cost ratio and an interest rate of 3.65 percent. In addition, the loan received 4 percent low income housing tax credits (LIHTC), several subordinate loans from the state of Maryland, and a property tax abatement from Baltimore County.
