By Anuradha Kher, Online News EditorTampa, Fla.–HFF (Holliday Fenoglio Fowler, L.P.) recently placed an $18.5 million loan with Freddie Mac for Mallory Square Apartments (pictured), a 383-unit multifamily community in Tampa, Fla. HFF placed the seven-year, adjustable-rate loan–which will also be serviced by HFF–with the lender. Loan proceeds are refinancing a construction loan.  “Freddie Mac ultimately provided the maximum loan available in the market for a non-recourse financing. The day-one interest rate was in the low 4 percent range with a built-in cap that is not significantly higher than where fixed-rate loans are priced today,” HFF Director Elliott Throne says. “The lender was attracted to the deal due to the quality of the asset and the strength of the sponsorship.”Completed in 2006, Mallory Square Apartments is located at 11306 Mallory Square Dr., approximately 10 miles from both Tampa’s central business district and Crystal and Clearwater Beaches.
