LOS ANGELES, Feb. 20, 2024 – JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has arranged the $5.5 million permanent, non-LIHTC Forward financing for Alvarado Apartments and Temple Apartments, two affordable housing communities targeting extremely low-income residents and individuals experiencing homelessness in Los Angeles, California.

JLL worked on behalf of the borrower, Brilliant Corners, to secure the 15-year loan through Freddie Mac Multifamily. The loan will be serviced by JLL Real Estate Capital, LLC, a Freddie Mac Optigo℠ lender.

The 24-unit Alvarado Apartments is located at 916 N. Alvarado St., and the 42-unit Temple Apartments sits at 2812 W. Temple St. The sites are intersected by I-101 and are 1.1 miles apart from each other. Floorplans include studios, one- and two-bedroom units.

Of the 66 total units, 25 units will be reserved for chronically homeless seniors, 39 units will be at 30% AMI, and two units will be reserved for full-time on-site building managers. 59 of the units will receive Housing Assistance Payments (HAP)/Project Based Vouchers (PBV) for residents earning no greater than 30% of AMI for a 20-year term provided through the Housing Authority of the City of Los Angeles (“HACLA”).

The JLL Capital Markets Debt Advisory team was led by Senior Director Anson Snyder.

“Alvarado / Temple is a ‘Project Homekey’ development targeting public investment to assist those persons experiencing chronic homelessness. Brilliant Corners is an exceptional developer, owner, and operator that offers a home with comprehensive resident services. This property will serve many Angelenos over many years. JLL is proud to participate in impactful communities.”

“Freddie Mac’s Non-LIHTC Forward financing helps preserve and create affordable housing, advancing our mission and making home possible for individuals and families," said Peter Lillestolen, Vice President, Production and Sales, Targeted Affordable Housing at Freddie Mac Multifamily. "We are proud to offer this flexible transaction structuring that provides certainty of execution at lower costs to the borrower. In a high interest rate environment, this makes a significant impact, allowing borrowers to take interest rate risk off the table prior to construction completion."
