Partners Secure $100M to Acquire, Rehab Far South Side Section 8 Apartments

L+M Development Partners, a New York-based full service real estate development firm, and SAA|EVI, a Baltimore-based real estate development firm, announced Tuesday the acquisition and rehabilitation of Concordia Place Apartments on Chicago’s Far South Side. The partners secured $99.7 million in funding to acquire and rehabilitate Concordia, including improvements to both interior and exterior features across the 53-year-old property. 

Located at 13037 S. Daniel Dr., the 297-unit affordable apartment complex consists of 29 two- to three-story residential buildings and one community building. It’s federally subsidized by a HUD HAP Section 8 Contract.   

The project is being financed via tax-exempt bonds issued by the Illinois Housing Development Authority, 4% low-income housing tax credits syndicated by Raymond James, a Freddie Mac tax-exempt loan provided by Capital One and a tax-exempt bridge loan provided by Fifth Third Bank.
