CHARLOTTE, NC – Holliday Fenoglio Fowler, L.P. (HFF) announces $20.23 million in acquisition financing for The Linden, a newly developed, 162-unit, mixed-use apartment property with approximately 6,000 square feet of ground floor retail in Davidson, North Carolina.
The HFF team worked exclusively on behalf of Raleigh, North Carolina-based Blue Heron Asset Management, LLC to secure the Fannie Mae loan through M&T Realty Capital Corporation.
The Linden is ideally positioned in the highly desirable and supply-constrained Charlotte suburb of Davidson, which provides nearby access to Lake Norman and walkability to the shops and amenities of Downtown Davidson as well as Davidson College. Additionally, the property is surrounded by several major economic drivers, including MSC Industrial Supply Company’s U.S. headquarters, Ingersoll Rand’s North American headquarters and Lowe’s global headquarters. Furthermore, the property will benefit from the soon-to-be-completed Interstate 77 infrastructure improvements, which will allow for direct access to all of Charlotte, including Uptown.
Completed in 2016, The Linden consists of a mix of studio, one- and two-bedroom units along with more than 5,800 square feet of fully leased ground-floor retail. Units feature open floor plans with modern finishes such as gourmet kitchens with granite countertops, European-style cabinetry, stainless steel appliances and wood-plank flooring. Community amenities include a resort-style pool, grilling area, fire pit, state-of-the-art athletic club, clubroom, coffee bar, library, conference room and corporate suites.
The HFF team representing the borrower consisted of senior director Roger Edwards. Loan origination by M&T Realty Capital Corporation was led by managing director Robert Ryan.
