CLEVELAND, August 30, 2017 /3BL Media/ - KeyBank Community Development Lending & Investment has provided a total of $30.6 million in financing to the Housing Trust Group of Coconut Grove, FL for the new construction of Princeton Park Apartments, a 150-unit LIHTC affordable apartment property located approximately 25 miles southwest of Miami. Specifically, KeyBank arranged a $23.3 million construction loan and a $7.3 million permanent loan through a Freddie Mac 9% LIHTC Forward Commitment product from its Targeted Affordable Housing platform.  

Princeton Park Apartments will offer families of low to moderate income affordable housing options by restricting rents to 33% and 60% AMI. Eight units will be set aside for tenants with special needs, such as mental or physical disabilities or illness, and services will be provided for these tenants by the Sunshine Health Plan. The project will feature four three-story buildings, an open courtyard, swimming pool, green space, dog park and clubhouse with additional community space and amenities including a business center and fitness center.

Kyle Kolesar and Jeff Rodman of KeyBank’s Commercial Mortgage Group arranged the financing. The National Equity Fund acted as the tax credit investor and syndicator on the project.
