JLL arranges $13.5 million financing for apartments in Greensboro, North Carolina

DENVER, July 25, 2017 – JLL announced today that it has secured $13.5 million in financing for The Retreat, a 503-unit, garden-style apartment community in Greensboro, North Carolina.

JLL worked exclusively on behalf of Eighteen Capital Group to place the ten-year, fixed-rate non-recourse loan.  

The Retreat is located at 4351 Hewitt Street, approximately five miles southwest of downtown Greensboro and adjacent to retail and dining.  The property is a combination of three apartment complexes that were previously managed and operated separately.  18 Capital Group's acquisition strategy was to combine operations of the complexes due to their close proximity, along with improving occupancy and rental rates with capital investments. The Retreat is approximately 94 percent leased with amenities including a fitness center, swimming pool, laundry facility, two tennis courts and ample parking.

The JLL Capital Markets group representing the borrower was led by managing director Baxter Fain and Christina Grimme. Grimme said, "The borrower was able to cash out all of their equity in the project in addition to loan pricing that was consistent with the agencies.  We are seeing lenders get aggressive on apartments and competing well with Fannie and Freddie; especially on cash out loans."
