Hunt Provides Refi on Low-Rise Multifamily in Ravenswood

Hunt Real Estate Capital has provided a $6.2-million first mortgage bridge loan to The Greenwald Company on its low-rise apartment building at 5009 N. Ashland Ave. The new facility refinances the existing loan on the 31-unit North Side property, with about $1 million allocated to future capital improvements.

Greenwald acquired the property this past April in a deal brokered by Essex Realty Group. “The Greenwald Company is a seasoned local investor that has managed the repositioning of nine investment properties in the Chicago area since 2014,” said Hunt managing director Harris Heller. “We were pleased to provide the financing to secure this property for a quality sponsor in a city with strong demand for multifamily housing.”

The low-rise’s unit mix consists of one and two-bedroom apartments, with most units featuring separate dining areas. Although technically located in Ravenswood, the property is a short walk from Andersonville’s Clark Street shopping district.
