Community Preservation Partners has teamed up with The Hampstead Cos. for the purchase of a 112-unit fully affordable community in Layton, Utah. Barlow Corp. sold Skyline View Apartments, according to public records, for $22 million. The new owners will implement interior and exterior upgrades, with a completion date set for August 2024.

The property’s HUD subsidies were set to expire, but the buyers’ involvement will maintain the community fully affordable for residents earning 50 percent of the area median income for another two decades.

Financing for the deal included a $19.4 Freddie Mac loan by Utah Housing Corp., as well as a $4.9 million Freddie Mac loan from KeyBank, Yardi Matrix shows. UHC also provided 4 percent Low-Income Housing Tax Credits.

Earlier this year, CPP and The Hampstead Cos. also partnered  for the acquisition of two affordable properties in Great Falls, Mont. Sunshine Village and Broadview Manor came online in 1979 and comprise 92 units.
