Atlanta-based Senior Vice President Alan Tapie and Assistant Vice President Thomans Widerman originated the loan, which was used to acquire the property.

“The borrower was seeking a fixed rate loan with prepayment flexibility during the second half of the loan term. Grandbridge secured a seven-year fixed rate loan that provided the borrower with an attractive interest rate as well as partial interest-only and a very flexible prepayment structure,” says Tapie.

Capital One provides $22.6M in fixed-rate HUD loans for Midwest skilled nursing

Chicago—Capital One Multifamily Finance has provided a $22.6 million in fixed-rate HUD 232/223(f) loans to refinance three skilled nursing assets in the Midwest. The transactions include an $8.7-million loan for a 208-bed facility in Chicago, a $4.6-million loan for a 143-bed facility in Oak Lawn, Ill., and a $9.3-million loan for a 111-bed facility in Saint Cloud, Minn. All three transactions were closed the last week in September.

The transactions were originated by Joshua Rosen, senior vice president of originations, who leads Capital One’s agency healthcare lending from the company’s Chicago office.  The borrower has closed several deals with Capital One Multifamily Finance during the last year.

“These deals highlight the advantages for borrowers of building a consistent relationship with their lenders,” Rosen says. “After having gone through the HUD application process several times with this borrower, we have learned to work together very efficiently. In this case, we were able to complete three HUD transactions simultaneously.”

Rosen adds that currently one of the prime advantages for the health care borrower of the 232/223 (f) program is the opportunity to lock in an attractive rate for a long term.  In this case, the three loans have terms of between 30 and 35 years. “The 232/223 (f) program is a great deal in the current environment,” Rosen says, adding that the loans are nonrecourse and fully assumable.
