Marks continuation of company’s debt program shift to multifamily construction
LOS ANGELES – January 19, 2021 – Broadshore Capital Partners (Broadshore) announced today that it has closed a $31.2 million senior construction loan to Sovereign Properties for the construction of the Sovereign at Burleson, a 217-unit, garden style apartment community in Burleson, Texas. Sovereign at Burleson, which is located at 285 SE John Jones Drive, capitalizes on the high growth in this suburban Dallas/Fort Worth area along IH-35 West, one of the region’s major transportation corridors.
“Broadshore’s debt program seeks to make stretch senior construction loans on up to 80% of loan-to-cost on multifamily projects in communities with multiple economic drivers that are being undertaken by experienced developers such as Sovereign Properties,” said Bleecker Seaman, co-CEO, Broadshore. “This loan further expands our multifamily construction lending program alongside our other high-yield debt activities. Changing market conditions coupled with our company’s expertise in multifamily investing allows us to seamlessly adapt our debt program to multifamily lending to provide capital where other lenders have pulled back.”
Sovereign at Burleson benefits from its proximity to the premiere commercial and industrial businesses located at the HighPoint Business Park and walking distance to numerous shopping and dining destinations. The community’s 217 contemporary apartment residences, configured as one-, two- and three-bedroom floorplans, will be developed in five, three-story buildings spread across the approximately 13-acre site. The interiors of the units utilize high-quality finishes and feature thoughtful color schemes, vinyl wood flooring, quartz and granite countertops, painted hardwood cabinetry, undercabinet and LED mood lighting, top of the line plumbing fixtures in the kitchen and master baths, and Nest thermostats.
Sovereign at Burleson will offer the most-sought-after resident amenities including a well-furnished clubroom, a resort style swimming pool with aqua lounge, poolside grilling and recreation areas, a spacious gaming lawn and a fully functional bike shop.
