Northmarq arranged a seven-year, interest-only loan to refinance Evergreen Square Apartments in the Twin Cities suburb of Buffalo, MN

Northmarq Arranges Refi for Apartments in Twin Cities’ Far Western Suburbs

Michael Padilla, SVP in Northmarq’s Minneapolis office, arranged a $6,843,000 refinance for Evergreen Square Apartments. The multifamily property consists of 78 units and is located at 911 6th Ave. in Buffalo, MN.  

The transaction was structured with a seven-year interest-only term followed by a 35-year amortization schedule. Northmarq arranged the permanent-fixed rate loan for the borrower through its in-house Fannie Mae DUS program. 

“This was a refinance of an existing Fannie Mae loan,” said Padilla. “Ease of execution and an expedited SRL application made this this transaction a win for all parties involved.”  

Built in 1990, the three-story Evergreen Square Apartments offers a newer community at an affordable price. The pet-friendly property offers one-, two-, and three-bedroom units in the Wright Far Western Suburbs. Residents of Evergreen Square enjoy three shopping centers within half a mile and an array of restaurants just off Highway 55 and 52.
