CHARLOTTE, Sept. 5, 2023 – JLL Capital Markets announced today that it arranged $30 million in construction financing for the development of Mountain Island, a Class A, 240-unit, garden-style multi-housing community located in Charlotte, North Carolina.  

JLL worked on behalf of the borrower, Waypoint Residential, to secure the four-year, floating-rate loan through United Bank.

JLL also arranged preferred equity financing with FCP®, to provide an additional $13.9 million for the development project.

Upon completion, Mountain Island will feature one-, two- and three-bedroom units with luxury vinyl plank wood flooring, walk-in closets, balconies/patios, stainless steel appliances and full-size washers and dryers.
