Franklin Street has arranged a $9 million loan for the refinancing of Addison Lane Apartments, a 316-unit multifamily apartment property located in Gainesville, the largest city in North Central Florida’s 14-county region. Casey Siggins and Ben Miller of Franklin Street’s Capital Advisors division secured the loan on behalf of the buyer, Florida Homes 7, LCC. The seven-year loan, arranged through a partnership with National Bank, has a fixed rate of 4.45 percent. Franklin Street’s Lonnie Kitchen provided insurance services for the asset.

“We were very pleased to get this borrower-friendly loan closed for our clients as it hit all their major hot-button issues,” said Siggins, director of loan origination for Franklin Street’s Tampa office. “The refinancing will allow them to fully reposition and stabilize this multifamily property while on a perm-debt type of loan. This loan closing shows that bank financing is still a viable alternative to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac lending for certain borrowers.”
