Castle Development Partners has secured $38.1 million to construct in a Williamsburg, VA opportunity zone.

Castle Development Partners to Utilize $38M Build Loan for Williamsburg OZ Residence

Charlottesville, VA-based Castle Development Partners is utilizing a $38.1-million loan to fund construction of a multifamily on a formerly blighted, 11-acre site in Williamsburg, VA.

AGM Financial Services, Inc., arranged the FHA-insured loan. Richmond, VA-based Breeden Construction is the project’s general contractor.

Castle’s plans call for the demolition of a closed hotel and replacement with the 162-unit Governor’s Inn residential community. The property is located within an opportunity zone and will have 21 apartments set aside at below market rates for income-qualified families.

“This plan will provide much-needed market rate and affordable housing, while respecting the character of the historic center of Williamsburg,” said Margaret Allen, founder and CEO of AGM Financial Services. “It’s a great opportunity to reposition a well-located site into high-quality housing that will benefit the community,” added to Andrew McGinty, head of operations management at Castle Development Partners.
