Black Bear Closes Permanent Financing on Wisconsin Apartments

Black Bear Capital Partners (BBCP) arranged $20.2 million in permanent financing on behalf of National Management, LLC for the refinance of three multifamily properties located in Appleton, Wausau and Schofield, WI. BBCP’s Scott Modelski and Sam Koziol arranged the financing.  

The Fannie Mae Loan through PGIM Real Estate’s agency lending program featured a fixed rate of 3.17% for 10 years with interest-only payments for the entirety of the term. 

The three Wisconsin multifamily properties, totaling 324 units, are known as Bos Creek, Metro Center and Rangeview and are respectively located at: 1901-1930 N. 10th Ave. in Wausau; 1408-1512 Metro Dr. in Schofield; and 1630-1660 W Evergreen Dr. in Appleton.  

The properties offer residents a blend of a peaceful country setting while also providing the conveniences of a suburban lifestyle, says BBCP. Residents are afforded a multitude of amenities while enjoying proximity to public transportation, shopping, and entertainment.
