Rockport Mortgage Corporation, a leading national provider of FHA multifamily and healthcare financing, today announced it has arranged $16.8 million for the refinance of Robinson Cuticura Mill Apartments, a 94-unit affordable housing community in Malden, MA. The loan, which utilized the HUD 223(f) program, was originated by Dan Lyons, Managing Partner.

Robinson Cuticura Mill Apartments consists of one four-story mill building originally constructed in 1892 and rehabilitated into its current use in 1978. The property contains a total of 94 units, including one, two and three-bedroom apartments.  The majority of the units are restricted to elderly or handicapped households.

The refinance transaction was done in collaboration with MassHousing through their MAP/Ginnie Mae Mortgage Backed Security (MBS) program. The program, designed to preserve and extend the availability of affordable housing in the Commonwealth, requires the mortgagor to reserve 20% of the subject property’s units for households earning no more than 80% of the area median income (AMI) for at least 15 years. With the completion of the Robinson Cuticura transaction, the affordability restrictions on the property were extended for 20 years.
