CBRE Capital Markets Provides $1.8 Million In Non-Recourse Financing For The Plaza Tower Apartments In Concord, Ca

San Francisco, CA – June 22, 2015 – CBRE Group, Inc. (CBRE), through its FHA lending platform, announced today the successful refinancing of The Plaza Tower Apartments, an affordable seniors apartment community located in Concord, CA. The $1,800,000 loan was funded through HUD’s Section 223(f) Program, providing a 35-year, fully-amortizing, fixed rate and non-recourse loan structure.

The loan will refinance existing debt and provide funds for moderate capital improvements to Plaza Tower, a 96-unit 13-story apartment building. Funded improvements include exterior painting, parking and façade repairs, roof replacement and interior upgrades to select units.

As part of the development agreement, the property is restricted to seniors at or above 55 years of age with incomes under 50 and 80 percent of median income. The property is well-located along the east side of Grant Street between Pacheco Street and Salvio Street in downtown Concord; the neighborhood is very walkable and within close proximity to numerous amenities, including a local farmer’s market just across the street.
