JLL secures $29 million in financing for Gabella at Parkside

​​JLL's Capital Markets experts secured $29 million in financing on behalf of Bigos Investments for the purchase of Gabella at Parkside. The 196-unit multifamily community is located in Apple Valley, Minnesota. Fannie Mae provided the fixed-rate 10-year loan through its Near-Stabilization Execution, allowing the borrower to close and fund prior to reaching full stabilized occupancy.

Managing Director Ken Dayton and Vice President Pat McMullen led the JLL team on the financing.

"Lenders are increasingly attracted to multifamily assets located just outside downtown urban cores," said Dayton. "Fannie Mae was an ideal partner for this property given its understanding of tenant desires and demographic trends."

Gabella at Parkside is a newly constructed apartment community that includes a fitness center, yoga and spinning studio, resort-style pool and private theater. It is located 20 miles from downtown Minneapolis and St. Paul, and just 15 miles from the Minneapolis/St. Paul International Airport.

As one of the nation's largest multifamily and seniors housing lenders, JLL connects clients to a full range of competitively priced, reliable mortgage products for the acquisition, refinance or rehabilitation of affordable and market-rate multifamily communities across the nation.
