Hunt Mortgage Group has provided a Freddie Mac Small Balance Loan of $5.5 million to finance the acquisition of Reach Loft Apartments, an affordable community in Philadelphia.

The firm arranged for a seven-year fixed rate loan on behalf of MM Equity Partners Philly LLC, which offered a loan term of 84 months, interest only for the first two years, followed by seven years of a 30-year amortization and yield maintenance prepayment schedule.  

Located at 1701-1707 Tulip St., the property comprises 30 units across five stories. Apartments are offered in one- and two-bedroom floorplans. Residents have access to features such as in-unit washer/dryers, bike storage and a furnished rooftop deck. 

“Reach Loft Apartments was built in 1900 and was originally a baseball making factory. The seller performed a gut renovation in 2015 repurposing the property into a multifamily property at a renovation cost of approximately $3.6 million,” said Harris Heller, managing director at Hunt Mortgage Group. “Reach Loft Apartments is located in the Fishtown section of the city of Philadelphia, approximately 2 miles north of the city’s central business district. The area has seen a renaissance in the past couple of years and the outlook for the neighborhood is positive. We were pleased to provide the financing to secure the acquisition of this unique property.”
