KeyBank Secures $74.6M for Merrillville MF Property

KeyBank Real Estate Capital (KBREC) arranged a $74.6 million Freddie Mac non-recourse, first mortgage loan secured by a 628-unit garden-style apartment complex known as “Lakes at 8201” in Merrillville, Indiana.  

Built in 1993, the apartment complex consists of 628, one-, two-, and three-bedroom units in 20 residential buildings. Located at 8201 Polo Club Drive, additional buildings on the site include an office, a clubhouse, and 13 garages (245 garage spaces), situated on a 36.66-acre lot of land.

John Ward and Joseph Tinti of KBREC structured the loan for The Beitel Group, a single-family office with experience in owning and managing a diversified, worldwide real estate portfolio. The loan will be used for acquisition. Beitel Group is wholly owned by the Beitel family, a veteran figure in the United States market for over 75 successful years.
