Chicago, IL (Vocus) January 14, 2009
Capmark Finance Inc. (Capmark Finance) originated a total of $24,700,000 in debt for the refinance of two Florida seniors housing properties owned by subsidiaries of Hallmark Housing LLC. The floating-rate loans refinanced Heritage Oaks ($17,000,000) and Allegro at East Lake ($7,700,000). The loans have a seven-year term and 30-year amortization.
Heritage Oaks is a 120-unit independent and assisted living community located in Tallahassee, Fla., and the Allegro at East Lake, located in Tarpon Springs, Fla., is a 92-unit independent and assisted living community.
The loans, eligible for sale to Freddie Mac, carry variable interest rates priced over Freddie Mac's One-Month Reference Bill Rate.
Senior Vice President Bill Kauffman of Capmark's Chicago Seniors Housing and Healthcare Group originated the loans for limited liability companies sponsored by Hallmark Holdings. The communities are managed by Love Management Company, another Hallmark Holdings subsidiary.
"Hallmark Holdings was able to tap Freddie Mac's Capped ARM product to refinance the existing Heritage Oaks debt, pulling out substantial equity while lining up an attractive permanent loan for Allegro at East Lake," Kauffman said.
