A Tale of Two Multifamily Loans in Goodyear and Champaign
Black Bear Capital Partners recently arranged two separate financing transactions totaling $43.6 million. Matt Stearns and Raymond Zanca of BBCP arranged the financing package.
In the first transaction, BBCP arranged $31.5 million in construction financing on behalf of a private investor for Solace at Ballpark Village, a ground-up residential development in Goodyear, AZ. The three-year loan, provided by Benefit Street Partners Realty Trust, will be used to replace the existing land loan and fund construction costs for the 211-unit multifamily development located at 2571 South Estrella Parkway. The complex is located within a qualified opportunity zone.
In the second transaction, the BBCP team of Stearns and Zanca arranged a $12.1-million 35-year loan featuring a fixed rate of 2.3% on behalf of a private investor. The asset was a 285-unit multifamily townhome totaling 256,230 square feet in Champaign, IL.
