HFF announces $56.5M financing for Willow Crossing in suburban Chicago
CHICAGO, IL – May 31, 2018 – Holliday Fenoglio Fowler, L.P. (HFF) announces $56.5 million in financing for Willow Crossing, a 579-unit, multi-housing community in the northwest Chicago suburb of Elk Grove Village, Illinois.
The HFF team worked on behalf of The Marquette Companies to secure the five-year, floating-rate loan through Wells Fargo. Loan proceeds were used to acquire the property and include a future-funding component that the borrower will use to revitalize the well-located asset.
Willow Crossing is located in the thriving Chicago suburb of Elk Grove Village, which is home to excellent public schools, substantial recreational facilities and proximate to major employment hubs. Willow Crossing consists of 14 buildings in a park-like setting. Renovated units will feature kitchens with new countertops, stainless steel appliances, walk-in closets, hardwood-style floors and private patios or balconies. Community amenities include two heated swimming pools, a grilling area, volleyball court, bark park, two playgrounds, fitness center, clubhouse, business center and a mix of surface and under-unit garage parking. In addition, the transit-oriented property is less than three miles from the Itasca Metra station, which offers commuters access around the entire Chicagoland region.
The HFF debt placement team representing the borrower included managing director Matthew Schoenfeldt.
“Lenders recognized Willow Crossing as a genuine diamond in the rough,” Schoenfeldt said. “This factor, combined with Marquette’s masterful value-creation strategy, allowed us to generate multiple aggressive loan proposals.”
