Black Creek Group has obtained a $63 million loan for The Daley at Shady Grove, a 333-unit apartment community in Rockville, Md., that the real estate firm acquired last year. JLL arranged the seven-year, fixed-rate financing with a life company lender. The loan features a 3.2 percent rate and interest-only payments for half of the term.

Completed in 2017, the property is located at 8010 Gramercy Blvd. within Westside at Shady Grove, EYA’s 45-acre, master-planned neighborhood northwest of Washington, D.C. Black Creek acquired the asset from Bozzuto Group in July 2019 for $93.5 million, equating to a price of $342.42 per square foot.

The property, located just north of the Shady Grove station of the Washington Metro, also features 14,974 square feet of retail space anchored by a Starbucks coffee shop.

Senior Director Jamie Leachman, Senior Managing Director Eric Tupler and Managing Director Josh Simon of the JLL Capital Markets team represented Black Creek in the financing deal.
