PRC Secures $58M Debt & Equity for Construction of Maryland Apartments

Phillips Realty Capital (PRC) has secured a $45.1M construction loan along with a $12.8 million preferred equity investment on behalf of client Varsity Investment Group for the development of St. Joseph Apartments, a four-story, stick-built, elevatored, 268-unit project in Upper Marlboro, MD.

Mark Remington and Alec Jenkins of PRC sourced and structured the $58M capital stack, including the preferred equity investment by FCP earlier in 2021.

Upon completion, the luxury apartment project will offer units with condo-quality finishes along with abundant nearby amenities at Woodmore Town Center and a one-mile proximity to the Largo Metro Station.

“We are excited to be part of a new wave of development in Prince George’s County,” said Donnie Gross of Varsity Investment Group. “The St. Joseph Apartments will help fill a need for a growing population of young professionals seeking modern amenities, suburban conveniences, and easy metro access.”
