Gainesville, Fla.—Walker & Dunlop has arranged $22 million in refinancing for Trimark Properties through JP Morgan. The borrower received a lower interest rate and 10-year fixed-rate financing on three of its Gainesville, Fla., apartments: Solaria II, Tuscana and Savion Park.

Located near the University of Florida’s Sorority Row, the properties are among those catering to the student market for housing in Gainesville. Combined, they total 114 units and 157,000 square feet.
