  JLL executes $15.5 million refinancing for White Magnolia Apartments

​Prime locations in the Los Angeles area continue to draw tenant demand and present opportunities to lenders. JLL's Capital Markets experts today announced the firm secured a $15.5 million refinancing loan for the White Magnolia Apartments located in Encino, California. Held Properties recently completed construction on the multifamily development.  

Managing Director Brian Halpern led the JLL team on the transaction.

"We marketed the construction take out loan opportunity and secured life company financing, which offered strong 10-year fixed pricing," said Halpern. "The life company's ability to lock in a rate of 3.65 percent before stabilization with five years of interest-only were key factors in bringing this loan to fruition." 

Joseph Held, COO for Held Properties, said, "White Magnolia Apartments is a boutique 50-unit luxury apartment building located just one block from famed shopping and dining on Ventura Boulevard. The project includes community amenities typically only seen in larger projects such as a barbecue area, a state-of-the-art fitness center, gas fire pit and an outdoor lounge area. All units include premium kitchens, washer and dryer units, patios or balconies and oversized bathtubs." 


"We are excited to see White Magnolia completed and to take advantage of the competitive debt market for long-term fixed-rate finance. Held Properties continues to seek development opportunities for luxury multi-family projects including smaller projects like White Magnolia with a long-term hold objective," said Robert Held, President & CEO, Held Properties.
