PHOENIX, Dec. 6, 2022 – JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has arranged a $30 million construction loan for Villas Litchfield Park, a 153-unit, build-to-rent community in Phoenix, Arizona.

JLL worked on behalf of the borrower, a joint venture between Blue Vista Capital Management and Family Development, to secure the three-and-a-half-year loan through Old National Bank.

Upon completion, Villas Litchfield Park will offer one- and two-bedroom, free-standing, single-story units that offer the privacy of a single-family home with the luxurious community amenities of an apartment complex. All units will feature simulated wood flooring, quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances, in-unit washer/dryers and private backyards. Luxury amenities will include a resort-style pool, fitness center, open turf spaces, outdoor lounge area and grill area.

Villas Litchfield Park is located in a dense infill location in Phoenix’s West Valley, an affluent area poised for further growth. The property is surrounded by a plentiful amenity base, including numerous dining and entertainment options as well as recreational sites.
