Madison Realty Capital acquires $18M mortgage portfolio

New York—Madison Realty Capital has purchased a single-borrower portfolio of six loans from a large commercial bank in an off-market, relationship-based transaction. The aggregate principal balance on the purchase loans, secured by six different multifamily and mixed-use properties owned by the same borrower, was approximately $18 million.

“With significant changes in the bank regulatory environment, lenders continue to sell off non-performing and underperforming loans,” says Brian Shatz, co-founder and managing member of Madison Realty Capital. “Recently, many of our bank counterparties have been looking to sell entire credits—in other words multiple loans with the same borrower—and this transaction is a prime example of the trend.”

Great Lakes Capital invests $4.8M in affordable housing development

Grandville, Mich.—Great Lakes Capital Fund (GLCF) recently invested $4.8 million to construct Genesis West Apartments, a supportive housing development, in Grandville, Mich.

Genesis West Apartments will provide 33 apartment homes to serve the homeless and persons with special needs with a focus on physical disabilities. Non-profit Dwelling Place of Grand Rapids Inc. will provide support services for all residents living in the development.

“Thanks to smart partnerships that work at the local, state and federal level, GLCF was able to secure $4.8 million of essential equity for Genesis West,” says GLCF president and CEO Mark McDaniel. “Financing housing for special needs populations is difficult, but housing folks first and then focusing on the issues that they are dealing with is the proven way to go.”

The proposed site for Genesis West will undergo demolition of an existing structure, and new construction efforts will be led by the development team’s general contractor, Rockford Construction. Genesis West will be constructed to LEED Silver standards. This will allow for more efficient energy consumption and limited utility expenses for renters in the building.

In addition to Great Lakes Capital Fund, Genesis Non Profit Housing Corp., Rockford Construction, and Dwelling Place of Grand Rapids Inc., development team members include Destigter Architecture and Planning and Beene Garter & Co. as the accountant.
