Bayview PACE Provides $5M Financing on Pasadena Condo Project

Bayview PACE provided $5 million in C-PACE financing for a new 19-unit condominium home development at 150 S. Oak Knoll in Pasadena’s Playhouse District. Project sponsor Nor Brand III LLC is building 11 one-bedroom units and eight two-bedroom units with private roof-top patios for the penthouse units. Some 32 parking spaces are planned.

The Oak Knoll condos are convenient to a neighborhood of historic buildings, high-end properties and a small shopping center. The project is also less than a mile from Kaiser Permanente School of Medicine, California Institute of Technology and Pasadena City College.

With C-PACE filling a key role in the overall $15-million project, the condos are expected to start construction soon and anticipated completion is in late 2024.  The lead mortgage lender is First General Bank. Construction is by Pasadena based MSB Constructors, Inc. and the architect is ONYX.

Connect Orange County will take place Sept. 27, 2023 at VEA | Newport Beach Marriott in Newport Beach. Click here for more information and to register.
