MinnesotaFinanceMultifamily Greystone provides $30.8 million loan to refinance affordable housing in Minnesota July 28, 2020 Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share via email Greystone provided a $30.821 million Freddie Mac Forward Tax-Exempt Loan to help finance the addition of 172 units to an existing affordable housing property in Bloomington, Minnesota. The loan was originated by Kyle Jemtrud, managing director at Greystone, on behalf of Aeon. The Freddie Mac affordable loan carries a two-year forward period plus an 18-year term at a fixed rate with a 40-year amortization. The financing, in combination with other capital sources, will be used to construct 172 new apartments on land adjacent to the existing Village Club apartment complex at 1930 E. 86th St. The two new four-story buildings will include three- and four-bedroom homes to serve larger families. With construction due to begin in August 2020, the community will be known as SoLo Apartments. Today, the 306 existing units at the adjacent Village Club serve mixed-income residents, with more than half of the units at or below 60 percent of the area median income and the remaining units at or below 80 percent of the area median income. Two thirds of the new units to be constructed at SoLo will be affordable at or below 60 percent of the area median income, and one third will be affordable at or below 80 percent of the area median income. The existing and to-be-constructed buildings are on an almost 18-acre site that features an indoor and outdoor pool, a racquetball court, a movie room and updated community space.
