April 02, 2020

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., April 2, 2020 JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has arranged $58.5 million in financing for a recently renovated, five-property multi-housing portfolio totaling 328 workforce-oriented housing units in San Diego, California.

JLL worked exclusively on behalf of the borrower, Real Asymmetry, to arrange the 10-year, fixed-rate loan through Union Bank. The loan proceeds were used to refinance existing bank debt at a much lower rate, including an initial interest-only period, and provided for a very flexible prepayment structure.

The properties in the portfolio are located in and around the East San Diego submarket, which is one of the fastest growing multi-housing markets in Greater San Diego. The portfolio includes Asana at North Park at 3710-3810 Wabash Avenue; Pacific Cove at 4019 Oakcrest Drive; Tierra Del Rey at 3675 King Street; Tiburon at 7740 Parkway Drive; and 14th Street at 1028 14th Street. The portfolio’s average occupancy at closing was 96%.

The JLL Capital Markets team representing the borrower was led by Senior Director Zane Sweet.
