Northmarq Secures $42M Loan on Mankato Student Housing

Northmarq Secures $42M Loan on Mankato Student Housing

Andy Finn, SVP in Northmarq’s Minneapolis-based debt/equity office, arranged $41.61 million in financing for The Grove at Mankato. The 524-unit student housing property is located at 200 Briargate Road in Mankato, MN.  

The transaction was structured on a non-recourse basis with a seven-year term with three years of interest only followed by a 30-year amortization schedule. Northmarq secured the permanent-fixed loan for the borrower through its relationship with a credit union. 

Managed by Greystar, the property is within a short walk to the campus of Minnesota State University as well as downtown Mankato.
