Low-Income Investment Fund (LIIF) provides acquisition bridge loan to complete close

Overlook Manor Townhouses

“Closing out 2020 with such an achievement assures many more years of reliable housing for residents, and NHPF is working toward closing a larger refinancing next year that will allow us to do a substantial rehabilitation of the property,” said Richard F. Burns, President & CEO of NHPF.

In keeping with its mission to preserve affordable housing, national not-for-profit The NHP Foundation (“NHPF”) has acquired Overlook Manor, 63 townhouse units in nine buildings for a moderate rehabilitation. NHPF closed on the purchase of the property with a $10 million acquisition bridge loan provided by the Low-Income Investment Fund (LIIF).

“Closing out 2020 with such an achievement assures many more years of reliable housing for residents, and NHPF is working toward closing a larger refinancing next year that will allow us to do a substantial rehabilitation of the property,” said Richard F. Burns, President & CEO of NHPF.

“LIIF continues to support developers such as NHPF to transform naturally occurring affordable housing into long term service-enriched affordable housing, which is in short supply throughout the country,” said Holly Denniston-Chase, Deputy Director, Mid-Atlantic Region for the Low Income Investment Fund (LIIF), “Overlook Manor is an especially important project given the many resources and amenities Frederick has to offer Overlook residents.”

NHPF will preserve and maintain the affordable property built in 1985, including replacement of most kitchen and bathroom components, HVAC equipment, water heaters, windows, light fixtures and flooring. Substantial work would also be done to the building exteriors, such as replacement of all roofs that haven’t been replaced in the last few years, and patching/seal coating of the parking lot. In addition, extensions would be added to the first floor of 3 end units to create barrier free (ADA) units.

“CORES-certified Operation Pathways resident services will be provided at Overlook Manor,” said Ken White, Executive Director, Operation Pathways, “Now, during these uncertain times, it is ever more critical to ensure that residents can utilize such programming to progress in their academic, professional and personal lives.”

Renovations on Overlook Manor are projected to begin in the 3rd quarter of 2021. The $20 million refinancing is expected to involve an HUD loan, short-term tax exempt bonds and Low-Income Housing Tax Credits.
