Prudential Mortgage Capital Company closes an $80.5 million loan; Marcus & Millichap sells 26 units in California; and Alliant Capital completes a $1.45 million refinance of an eight-unit building.

The Encore

Alexandria, Va.—Prudential Mortgage Company has provided an $80.5 million loan to Bonaventure Realty Group that is secured by The Encore, a 461-unit community located in Alexandria, Va. The seven-year, fixed rate refinancing package is the largest Freddie Mac loan closed by Prudential Mortgage Capital Company so far in 2011.

Bonaventure acquired The Encore, which was constructed in 1967 and 1969, in 2005 and launched a major renovation program that completed in 2010. The community is located less than a mile from Mark Center, the new home of the Washington Headquarters Service, which is expected to bring several thousand jobs to the area.

“The strength of Bonaventure Realty Group and the opening of the Mark Center made this an attractive transaction,” says Jason Miller, associate in Prudential Mortgage Capital Company’s metro Washington office.

“The likelihood of thousands of new jobs in the immediate area combined with the recent renovations and the strength of the Northern Virginia/Washington, D.C. market should drive interest and help make The Encore a premiere residential destination in the area,” says Dwight Dunton, president and founder at Bonaventure.

The Encore is comprised of 13 two- and three-story apartment buildings situated on 17 acres. Community amenities include a swimming pool, community clubhouse, theater room, fitness center, business center and a commuter shuttle.
