Portland, Ore.–Berkadia Commercial Mortgage LLC originated $18,664,000 in permanent, variable-rate debt through its Freddie Mac program to refinance Altamont Summit, a 439-unit multifamily community in Portland, Ore.

Mitchell R. Thurston and Andrew J. Ahlers of Berkadia’s San Francisco office originated the loan. The borrower is Altamont Summit, LLC, an affiliate of Arcadia Development Co., of San Jose, Calif.

Altamont Summit is a hilltop community of luxury, Craftsman-style apartments with panoramic views of downtown Portland.  The property was 95 percent occupied at the time of closing.
