CLEVELAND, January 10, 2019 /3BL Media/ - KeyBank announced today arranging $28.4 million in a Fannie Mae affordable housing preservation refinance loan for Commonwealth Multifamily Housing Corporation (“Commonwealth”) for the benefit of White Rock Apartment Homes, a multifamily, 336-unit mixed-income property in San Antonio, TX. The refinance replaces two series of tax exempt bonds issued by the Texas State Affordable Housing Corporation more than 17 years ago to develop and construct the property and provides over $2 million in capital for roof replacements and other improvements that will enhance White Rock’s role as Commonwealth’s flagship property. More importantly, the property will continue to provide its historical and much needed affordable housing in the city.

“KeyBank is proud to partner with Commonwealth and supporting its mission of preserving quality affordable housing for the citizens of San Antonio,” said Robbie Lynn, senior mortgage banker of KeyBank Real Estate Capital. “The preservation of this high quality, affordable community demonstrates a strong commitment towards the city’s housing goals while improving the financial security for families that are heavily burdened by ever-increasing rents in the city and state-wide.”

Commonwealth is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that is the operational core of a small group of nonprofit organizations with a 40-year history of national housing policy advocacy, affordable community acquisition, development and rehabilitation, resident education program implementation and nonprofit oversight.

“Our officers and directors have spent decades fighting to create and preserve affordable housing in times of crisis, and KeyBank has proven itself to be on the same page in that fight,” offered David Cole, COO of Commonwealth.

Robbie Lynn of KeyBank’s Commercial Mortgage Group led the financing team with Tiffany Durr of KeyBank’s Community Development Lending and Investment team.
