June 10, 2013—M&T Realty Capital Corporation has closed a $55.7 million FHA loan for the Van Metre Companies, one of the region’s largest private multi-disciplinary real estate companies, to begin construction on Van Metre at Kensington Place, a 315-unit apartment complex in Woodbridge, VA. The loan was completed under the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Federal Housing Authority (FHA) 221(d)(4) program. This is the largest new construction loan M&T Realty Capital Corporation has completed to date.

Van Metre Kensington Place Apartments will be Van Metre’s newest Signature community conveniently located adjacent to the I-95/Prince William Parkway interchange in Woodbridge, VA. Van Metre Kensington Place Apartments was designed by Van Metre Architecture. The community will offer residents a variety of uniquely designed floor plans to choose from, and each apartment will offer luxury finishes such as: granite, clean steel appliances, hardwood flooring in select units, maple cabinetry, crown molding, and even built in charging stations for phones and computers within each apartment. The community has an abundance of amenities which include: two pools, a sun deck, putting green, outdoor BBQ area, and two fitness centers, as well as private bike storage.

This project promises to provide economic benefits to the region through increased employment and local housing opportunities. When completed, the complex will provide attractive housing targeted to DC commuters.

“We are pleased to facilitate financing for this important project that will provide attractive housing units to the market,” said Paula Quigley, the managing director who led the transaction in partnership with M&T Bank Commercial Real Estate department’s officer Timothy Lascko. Ms. Quigley is also the FHA program manager for M&T Realty Capital Corporation.
