GLOUCESTER, MA…Rockport Mortgage Corporation today announced that it has closed on a $50.3 million HUD Section 223(f) refinancing loan in lower Manhattan.
The property, an elderly housing development with more than 150 units, benefited from a 20-year housing assistance payment, or “HAP”, contract with the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). As part of the loan transaction, the owner of the property and HUD each agreed to effectively extend the term of the HAP contract for a period of 39 years, preserving the affordability of the property until 2058.
“Our team shares a deep commitment to the preservation of quality, affordable housing across the nation,” said Dan Lyons, Managing Partner of Rockport Mortgage Corporation.“
Proceeds of the loan will be used by the owner to refinance existing debt and recapitalize reserves, complete needed upgrades and improvements for its residents, and further support the owner’s mission in meeting the diverse needs of the elderly in New York City.
