Again, RED delivered on their terms quickly and without headache. We’re glad to have Andy Warnock and the team at RED on our side.

RED Mortgage Capital, LLC, the mortgage lending entity of comprehensive capital provider RED CAPITAL GROUP, LLC, announced the placement of permanent financing in the amount of $8,225,000 for Waterstone at Village Square, a multifamily community located in Lake Orion, Michigan, approximately 36 miles north of Detroit.

The refinance of the original construction loan utilized a Fannie Mae DUS® 20-year term fixed-rate loan with a 30-year amortization. Redwood Living completed construction in early 2014 on this 77-unit multifamily ranch-style community.

Steve Kimmelman founded Redwood Living’s predecessor company in 1991 with a focus on multifamily properties designed around the desires of residents, which included a single-story open floor design with an attached garage. By acting as both the developer and management company, Redwood ensures high quality apartment homes at affordable rental rates. Redwood currently manages more than 4,000 units in Ohio, Michigan and Indiana.    

David Conwill, President of Redwood Communities Group, said, “We are pleased with Waterstone at Village Square, our first luxury apartment project completed in Michigan. As soon as we delivered our final unit, RED was there with very competitive permanent financing terms.” Conwill continued, “Our long-term relationship with RED has provided us certainty of execution. Again, RED delivered on their terms quickly and without headache. We’re glad to have Andy Warnock and the team at RED on our side.”

“Redwood is a first-class organization with whom RED has had the privilege to work on numerous occasions,” said Andy Warnock, Director at RED. “Fannie Mae stepped up to the plate and offered aggressive terms in a pre-review market, which allowed Redwood the ability to refinance their construction loan in a timely fashion. Working with a great group like this makes our job much easier.”
