Allendale, Mich.NorthPoint Capital Funding has financed a $21.3 million loan for The Lodge, a luxury student housing development in Allendale, Mich. NPCF was able to arrange a construction line of credit converting to a commercial real estate end mortgage loan with Flagstar Bank in order to meet the demands of Zimmer Development Co., the developer.

“The out-of-state borrower was developing this great student housing project and needed a lender that shared their vision and deep belief in the value of the market,” Mark Perkowski, director at NPCF, said in a prepared statement.

The Lodge consists of eight three-story buildings totaling 192 units and 576 beds, with the first phase of the project (which includes the apartments) scheduled for completion in time for the 2017-2018 school year. Each of the two- and four-bedroom apartments comes fully furnished.

The new student living facility includes a resort-style pool, fitness center, yoga studio, clubhouse, game room, social lounge, barbecue grilling stations, fire pit, individual and group study rooms, computer lab with printers, coffee bar and volleyball court.
