November 16, 2020

SAN DIEGO, November 16, 2020 – JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has arranged $3.45 million in construction financing for the 10-unit Carlton Oaks Townhome development in East San Diego County.

JLL worked on behalf of the borrower, Responsible Residential, to secure the loan through a private lending source.

The for-rent townhome community will consist of two three-story buildings with 14,777 square feet of rentable area. Each townhome averages 1,477 square feet and includes three bedrooms with three-and-a-half baths and features a two-car garage – also pre-wired for electric vehicle charging – en-suite bathrooms for all bedrooms, stacked in-unit washer and dryer, stainless-steel appliances, chrome and brushed nickel fixtures and carpet and luxury vinyl flooring with some units including balconies and personal patios.

Carlton Oaks will be located on the northeast corner of Carlton Oaks Dr. and E. Heaney Circle in Santee, a suburb in San Diego County, just a couple of miles from the renowned San Diego Christian College and just 20 miles from Downtown San Diego.

Santee is touted for its various outdoor recreational destinations, including the Santee Mast Park, which recently underwent $10 million in playground, picnic, and sports area renovations; San Diego River Trail Walker Preserve, a 14-foot wide, 1.3-mile long trail; and the Santee Lakes Recreation Preserve, also known as “San Diego’s Best Campground,” and offers fishing, boating and camping. In addition, Santee is home to Sportsplex USA, a 15-acre premier complex that hosts over 360,000 visitors annually for sports leagues, tournaments, and corporate events.

“We are happy to get this project underway,” said Bryan T. Underwood, Principal of Responsible Residential. “Chris Collins and his team did a fantastic job and presented our team with a range of financing options. We are pleased to bring much-needed housing to the Santee market and look forward to doing our part to increase the housing supply throughout San Diego.”

The JLL Capital Markets team representing the borrower was led by Director Chris Collins.  

“Responsible Residential has always been a great partner, and we are more than thrilled with the outcome of this loan closing,” said Collins “It is very exciting to see new development in the Santee market and believe it’s the start of a trend moving forward.”
