Merchants Capital Secures $110M for DC Workforce Housing Developments
Merchants Capital has secured more than $110 million in total financing for Parkside 8 and Parkside 10, two mixed-use, workforce housing developments located in Ward 7 in Washington, DC. Within the new properties, select units will be reserved for residents earning between 80% and 120% of area median income.
To finance the properties, Merchants Capital secured $56 million of construction loans provided by Merchants Bank of Indiana and $59 million in permanent financing through Freddie Mac Non-Low-Income Housing Tax Credit Forward Commitments and Freddie Mac Permanent Loans.
Upon completion, Parkside 8 and Parkside 10 will feature 230 total residential units and approximately 14,000 square feet of commercial retail space. The properties are part of a larger development known as Parkside.
