Vermilion Condo Project Lands CIBC Financing via HFF

CIBC Bank USA will provide $31.1 million in financing to Vermilion Development for the construction of 43 luxury condominium units and 12 townhomes at Alcove M.D.P. in the North Side’s Wicker Park neighborhood. HFF’s Christopher Knight arranged the debt on Vermilion’s behalf.

“Alcove’s well-priced luxury units with thoughtful layouts and high construction quality in the heart one of Chicago’s most desirable neighborhoods make it a standout,” said Knight. “The CIBC loan is a great execution for both the bank and Vermilion, but the project will ultimately benefit future residents most.”

Alcove will be located at 1650 W. Division St., and is scheduled to break ground in the first quarter of 2019. A seven-story condo tower will include 43 units averaging almost 2,000 square feet. The 12 townhomes range between 3,000 and 3,500 square feet.

Pre-sales are underway at a dedicated sales center, located nearby at 1295 N. Milwaukee Ave.
