JLL secures acquisition and rehabilitation financing for Willow Pond Apartments

DALLAS, March 28, 2017 – JLL's Capital Markets experts today announced the firm secured financing for the purchase and rehabilitation of Willow Pond Apartments, an affordable 386-unit apartment community in Northeast Dallas. JCR Capital provided the loan to the buyer, S2 Capital.​

"Willow Pond Apartments is a vital apartment community for the Dallas metro and one of the few in the area qualified for Low-Income Housing Tax Credits," said Brandenburg. "S2 Capital has a great deal of experience in making strategic capital improvements and this financing will help these apartments reach their full potential."  

The community consists of 37 two-story buildings. It is located less than two miles from The Central Expressway, which connects residents to the nearly 12 million square feet of office space and 2.5 million square feet of retail space located along the thoroughfare.

S2 Capital plans to upgrade the unit and community finishes including interior and exterior paint, flooring, cabinetry, bedroom and bathroom fixtures, a new dog park, upgraded laundry room and pool, and a revamped resident clubhouse. The upgrades will give residents access to housing normally found in newer vintage properties, all while maintaining its present value and LURA LIHTC compliance.
