JV snaps up Twin Cities assets 

Southview GablesInver Grove Heights, Minn.—Oak Grove Capital has originated a $42.5 million fixed-rate Fannie Mae loan for a joint venture between White Oak Partners and a fund managed by Ares Management to acquire a 425-unit apartment asset in Inver Grove Heights, Minn. known as Southview Gables. The fixed-rate loan has a 10-year term with three years of interest-only and seven years of yield maintenance.

This was JV’s first deal with Oak Grove Capital. The loan structure provides the new owners with additional cash flow in the loan’s early years, and there is the option for an attractive loan payoff.
