Greystone Monticello Provides $37 Million in Financing for Build-to-Rent Portfolio in Arizona, Cushman & Wakefield Represents Buyer

NEW YORK, Feb. 29, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Greystone Monticello and Cushman & Wakefield jointly announced today that the firms provided financing for, and represented the buyer of, respectively, a two-property portfolio of build-to-rent multifamily communities in Phoenix, Arizona.

Jeems Lochridge of Cushman & Wakefield represented Balfour Pacific Capital and Stone View Holdings, the joint buyers and co-General Partners in the transaction, and Greystone’s Dale Holzer of Greystone originated the loan through Greystone Monticello. In the transaction led by Chris Hetzel, Greystone Monticello provided a two-year $37,250,000 bridge acquisition loan to allow for lease-up and stabilization of the portfolio.

The two-site portfolio, Stone View on Central and Stone View on 7th, consists of build-to-rent, entry-level communities totaling 123 homes. The properties are developed to modern new-home construction standards with each townhome-style unit featuring quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances, en-suite laundry, and select units have two-car attached garages. All units are individually metered for electricity, water, and trash services and individually platted with their own addresses.

“The demand for build-to-rent assets in the Phoenix MSA remains robust, both from the investor standpoint and the renter. Build-to-rent properties provide a desirable option for renters looking for the comforts of a home who are priced out of the home buyer market. The partnership between Stone View Holdings and Balfour Pacific identified the opportunity to provide much needed infill housing to meet this renter demand,” said Jeems Lochridge, Managing Director, Cushman & Wakefield.

“The build-to-rent asset class is a promising investment class for the multifamily sector, having shown growing strength in demand over the last several years,” said Mr. Holzer. “Greystone strives to offer a broad range of financing options that can satisfy a number of client needs, and we are thrilled to provide this build-to-rent acquisition financing solution with Greystone Monticello.”

“The successful execution of the financing is a testament to our strong relationship with Greystone Monticello’s Chris Hetzel,” said Bruce Rudichuk, Balfour’s Head of Multifamily, adding, “The bridge financing is a perfect solution for our lease-up period, and we are excited to explore permanent exit options with Greystone.”

David Shlomi, Principal of Stone View Holdings added, “It was a pleasure working with the teams on this portfolio acquisition in Phoenix, which is a market we are very optimistic about.”
