Austin, Texas—Capital One Multifamily Finance has provided Freddie Mac fixed loans totaling $42.8 million that allow Intercontinental Real Estate to acquire two apartment properties in Austin. The 5th Street Commons features 150 units; the Pressler features 168 units. Both were built in 2009.
The transaction was originated by Brian Sykes, Beech Street’s senior vice president of originations headquartered in the company’s Boston office. This is the latest of a series of transactions that the purchaser, Intercontinental Real Estate, has completed with Capital One Multifamily through its U.S. Real Estate Investment Fund. The fixed-rate loans have a seven-year term with seven years interest and 6.5 years defeasance.
“In an effort to maximize the return for the investor, we worked with Freddie Mac to provide a very competitive seven-year, full-term interest-only loan,” Sykes says.
Sykes and his team worked through several complex issues with the agency, including a master ground lease for the retail portion of the property.
The properties share a number of upscale amenities, including a fitness center, e-lounge/business center, electric vehicle charging stations, concierge desk and pool and sun deck. Both properties are located close to Austin’s central business district.
