HFF secures joint venture equity and construction financing for Class A multi-housing development in Charlotte, North Carolina
CHARLOTTE, NC – August 15, 2016 – Holliday Fenoglio Fowler, L.P. (HFF) announced today that it has arranged joint venture equity and construction financing for the development of Fountains at Ballantyne, a 245-unit, Class A multi-housing development in Charlotte, North Carolina.
HFF worked on behalf of the developer, Proffitt Dixon Partners, to arrange joint venture equity capital with The Carlyle Group. In addition, HFF secured $29.102 million in construction financing for the partnership through TD Bank.
Fountains at Ballantyne will be located at 12135 N. Community House Road just north of Interstate 485 within Toringdon Office Park. Situated in the Ballantyne/Toringdon submarket, the property will be proximate to more than 5.98 million square feet of Class A office space and many large employers, including MetLife, SPX and Snyder-Lance Inc. Due for completion in summer of 2018, the property will have 245 studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom units within a four-story wrapped deck-style building. Units will feature 9’ to 12’ ceilings, expansive master closets, computer niche workstations, pantries and linen closets, stainless steel appliances, stand-up showers, in-unit washers and dryers and balconies/patios. Common area amenities include an 8,000-square-foot clubhouse and fitness center with yoga room; resort-style swimming pool with sun deck; courtyard with gas grills, bar and fire pit; fenced dog park and pet wash station.
The HFF debt and equity placement team representing the developer was led by senior managing director Travis Anderson, director Allan Lynch, managing director Justin Good and associate director Cory Fowler.
“Charlotte’s Ballantyne submarket is one of the most moved-to zip codes in the United States due to the influx of new development and steady job growth,” said Anderson. “Combined with its position within Toringdon Office Park and its proximity to Interstate 485, Fountains at Ballantyne is a unique live-work-play community strategically positioned for healthy lease-up and overall success once completed.”
“With extensive development experience between Proffitt Dixon and Carlyle, the property will benefit from the partnership’s detailed approach to development and the unique urban setting in Toringdon as they deliver the first multi-housing building incorporating structured parking within the submarket,” said Fowler.
“With only 650 units delivered in 2015 and only 570 planned over the next two years, the limited supply of new multi-housing development in the area will further increase the property’s appeal to renters,” added Fowler.
