SAN DIEGO, Nov. 9, 2021 – JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has arranged $93 million in preferred equity and construction financing for the development of Venue at Orange, a 328-unit, wood-frame, garden-style multi-housing community in the San Bernardino County community of Redlands, California.

JLL worked on behalf of the borrower, LuxView Properties, to secure the five-year, $66.8 million, floating-rate loan through Principal Real Estate Investors. Additionally, JLL sourced $26.2 million in preferred equity from a public REIT.

Venue at Orange will be the first new multi-housing development in the city of Redlands in more than 30 years. Situated on 21.84 acres in Redlands, the project represents one of the largest multi-housing development sites, and there are no additional entitled sites designated for multi-housing in the Redlands Market. Redlands is a growing community that is part of California’s Inland Empire just east of Los Angeles County. This area has a strong local employment outlook, and the project is minutes from a forthcoming ESRI station for the Redlands Passenger Rail project, an advanced regional transportation project designed to connect residents, businesses and visitors to local and regional demand drivers. 

With an expected completion of late 2022, Venue at Orange will offer a mix of one-, two- and three-bedroom units averaging 944 square feet. The community amenities will include resident conference rooms for at-home work, a large community park with trails and jogging paths, community courtyard with a planned community center, demonstration kitchen, enclosed playground, community pool and state-of-the-art gym and outdoor exercise areas. 

The JLL Capital Markets debt team that represented the borrower was led by Senior Managing Director Aldon Cole and Associate Bharat Madan.

“Venue at Orange appealed to a broad cast of investors for both senior construction financing as well as the upper-tier portion of the capital stack,” Cole said. “We ultimately landed on a senior loan plus preferred equity, which was highly accretive for the borrower to capture the value creation over the past few years. The competitive process played out as we anticipated with a great result for all parties.”
