LOS ANGELES, May 9, 2022 – JLL Capital Markets, on behalf of Universe Holdings, has arranged a $30.315 million refinancing of Nantucket Creek, a 172-unit, garden-style, age-restricted (55+) apartment community in Chatsworth, California.

JLL worked on behalf of the borrower, Universe Holdings, to secure the 10-year, fixed-rate loan through Freddie Mac. The loan will be serviced by JLL Real Estate Capital, LLC, a Freddie Mac Optigo℠ lender. Proceeds from the loan also provided a return of equity to Universe’s balance sheet.

“The attractive financing from JLL allows us to optimize our investment as well as provide us with a significant amount of fresh capital to pursue future acquisitions,” said Henry Manoucheri, CEO of Universe Holdings.

Nantucket Creek comprises one- and two-bedroom units ranging from 623 to 1,100 square feet. Apartments feature individual heating and air, gas ranges, hardwood floors, large closets, high ceilings and private patios/balconies. The community features a clubhouse, billiards room, shuffleboard court, pool table, fitness center, library, recreational room, walking trails, horseshoe pit and more.

Positioned at 9225 Topanga Canyon Blvd., the community is conveniently located along CA-27, providing access to local retail and dining centers, as well as Chatsworth Dry Lake Nature Preserve and West Hills Hospital and Medical Center.

The JLL Capital Markets Debt Advisory team representing the borrower was led by Senior Managing Director Charles Halladay, Director Jonah Aelyon and Analyst Elle Miraglia.
