ISSUE HIGHLIGHTS Volume 32, Issue 4 Feb. 28 - March 12, 2020

As one of the largest CDFIs solely dedicated to multifam- ily housing, CPC expects to deploy the capital raised in furtherance of its nonprofit mission of investing in afford- able and sustainable multi- family housing in New York State and City and throughout the Northeast. “Our successful bond sale signals that the market not only has confidence in the CDFI sector’s ability to de- liver as a solid investment, it also understands that our mission-focused work can cre- ate an impact that goes beyond their bottom line,” said Rafael Cestero , president & CEO, CPC. “CPC is in an unprec- edented position of financial strength. We now have the resources, and with them, the responsibility to define what we can and should be doing to help our partners address their most pressing housing

the strength of CPC as an entity and the importance of their role in financing afford- able housing,” said Marvin Markus , managing director, Goldman Sachs & Co. LLC. In preparation for its sus- tainability bond offering, CPC obtained an independent opin- ion fromSustainalytics, a glob- al leader in ESG research, rat- ings and analysis. Sustainalyt- ics evaluated the alignment of CPC’s sustainability bond platform with relevant indus- try standards and provided views on the robustness and credibility of the Sustainable Bond Framework. As a leading affordable housing lender, and an innovator in the financing of energy efficient construction and retrofits, CPC’s mission- based construction lending aligns with the environmental and social impact principles of the Sustainability Bond Guidelines 2018. 


CPC is a “AA-” rated com- pany with a Stable Outlook from S&P Global Ratings. The rating agency cited CPC’s “ex- perienced, proactive manage- ment team and board, which exhibit strong risk oversight and governance capabilities, and a mission-driven growth strategy,” as well as its opin- ion that, “CPC maintains a profitable, well-diversified operation that is distinct from its CDFI peers.” CPC’s issuance was led by Goldman Sachs & Co. LLC with joint bookrunner Siebert Williams Shank &Co., LLC , the nation’s leading woman- owned and minority-owned financial services firm. “Goldman Sachs is hon- ored to have assisted CPC with its inaugural long-term debt offering.

Brach Eichler’s CRE industry outlook for 2020 reveals growth

R OSELAND, NJ — The real estate prac- tice at BrachEichler, a Roseland , NJ based law firm, has announced that it closed just under $2.05 billion in real estate deals in 2019. Real Estate Practice Chair Allen Popowitz said the strong year was a continu- ation of a positive trend in real estate throughout the mid-Atlantic states. Among the highlights: • The strongest sector was multifamily, with 25,000 total units across 80 trans- actions, representing sales, purchases and refinancing. This included one deal with more than 6,000 apartments with a transaction value over $1 billion. The predominant property locations for multi- family included NJ, NY, NC, PA, DE, MD, MI, and VA. • Other significant deals for private investors included: ▪ Over 1,500 apartments in Michigan for one investor (five properties) ▪ The refinancing of 11 properties containing almost 3,000 units in the Capital District of New York ▪ The acquisition of over eight properties containing a total of 1,500 apartments in NC, VA, and MD) • Commercial properties represented a diverse cross- section of industrial, retail and other commercial uses, including office buildings, automobile dealerships, a gas station, hotels, country clubs, warehouse distribution and industrial buildings, a self- storage facility, strip malls, and mobile home parks. “For our clients, Maryland and Virginia are playing a significant role in this con- tinuing velocity of real estate transactions, as is North Carolina and Michigan,” said Popowitz. “Our inves- tor clients in the New York metro market are seeing the value in investing further south where greater yields are available. In addition, the demand for workforce housing is still very strong in those markets, as well as in New Jersey and New York.” Popowitz noted that the New York metro area bedroom

communities are still hot, with a high rate of redevel- opment in Hudson County, which he said had been long underappreciated. In terms of lenders, Brach Eichler Real Estate member Alan Hammer said that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are still actively lending

particularly industrial and multifamily properties, which will continue to fuel this robust level of activity,” he said. According to Popowitz and Hammer, among the trends that will continue to shape the real estate landscape in 2020 are those related to shifts in the healthcare field:

Medical facilities are occupying different spaces than in prior years. Urgent care facilities will continue to proliferate due to consumer demand; expect to see more of them going into shopping malls and office buildings.

on the largest transactions. “Insurance companies—prin- cipal lenders in real estate— are lending selectively to in- vestors at very good rates. In addition, local banks are ac- tively and aggressively lend- ing to individuals with solid investment track records, and they remain keen on working with time-honored products and customers they know,” said Hammer. Hammer pointed to the country’s sound economy and the booming stock market as a leading indicator of what to expect in 2020. “The real es- tate market will remain very active, as mortgage interest rates remain at historic lows. Since this is an election year, we can be fairly sure that the incumbent president running for re-election will remain committed to low interest rates and the availability of inexpensive capital.” Hammer also noted that a new kind of investor has entered the market in recent years. “They are people who’ve ac- cumulated wealth by invest- ing in other asset classes and now want to be in real estate, The Real Estate Outlook for 2020

• As the single practitioner model of healthcare contin- ues to decline and practices merge or are acquired by hospitals, abandoned small- office space once occupied by healthcare providers will become available. • Conversely, as medical practices and hospitals con- solidate, they will continue to drive demand for larger facili- ties to absorb their expansion. • Medical facilities are occupying different spaces than in prior years. Urgent care facilities will continue to proliferate due to consumer demand; expect to see more of them going into shopping malls and office buildings. • Rehabilitation facilities are becoming more numerous and expanding into the retail space, as well. Popowitz also acknowl- edged the considerable va- cancies in suburban office buildings. “In 2020, we’ll see owners adding many new amenities to attract ten- ants, as well as converting formerly vacant office proper- ties into multifamily, retail, and community spaces with enhanced services such as conference rooms and game areas.” 

M id A tlantic R eal E state J ournal Lender concludes $2.75 million land loan in Tuscaloosa, Alabama Kennedy Funding closes $3 million loan for residential resort in Central America

NGLEWOODCLIFFS, NJ — Kennedy Fund- ing c ontinues to make its name as a leading inter- national direct private lender, with the closing of a $3 million loan to Point Alegre Develop- ment in the Central American country of Belize. Loan proceeds will be used for refinancing, debt payoff, construction, and working cap- ital to fund the development of 19 acres zoned for residential tourism inside Orchid Bay, a 114-acre master-planned bay- front residential resort com- munity located in the Corozal Bay inlet. A total of 30 parcels E

inside Orchid Bay are part of this development phase. This is the second loan Ken- nedy Funding has closed in Belize, a Central American country near the Caribbean Sea. “Traditional lenders shy away from the legal, real es-

tate, and financing challenges that accompany international lending, but a lender like Ken- nedy Funding has the neces- sary experience to success- fully close loans abroad,” said Kevin Wolfer , president and CEO, Kennedy Funding. “The loan for Orchid Bay required significant legal work and knowledge of local, regional, and international real estate and financial laws. No typical lender could make this type of deal happen. Thanks to our years of work and robust track record inmany regions abroad, including the Caribbean, Ken- nedy Funding successfully navigated the legal framework necessary to close.” According to Wolfer, the first phase of development on the site has been constructed and fully sold. Tuscaloosa, AL —Ken- nedy Funding closed a $2.75 million loan to SLH Tusca- loosa, LLC. The borrower will use the proceeds toward the $5.5 million purchase of 38.7 acres of raw land along the northern banks of the Black Warrior River, which runs through Tuscaloosa. According to Wolfer, the borrower plans to construct a 120-room Southern Living- branded hotel, along with 32 cottages available for indi- vidual sale. “It was a complex loan, and Kennedy Funding went above and beyond to make it hap- pen,” said Solomon Camp- bell , managing director of Chiron Securities LLC , the broker that represented SLH Tuscaloosa, LLC. According to the developer, the 124,000 s/f complex will in- clude a restaurant and fourth floor rooftop lounge called “The Boat House,” developed by Birmingham, Alabama-based restaurateur Chris Hastings. The site also calls for a TopGolf Swing Suite, an event space for wine tastings and cooking tutorials, and The Greater Southern Bakery and Cof- fee House café that features recipes from Southern Living Magazine . 

altimore City, MD — Institutional Property Advisors (IPA) , a division of Marcus & Millichap announced that it has closed the sale of Mount Clare Junction, a 234,036 s/f grocery-anchored shopping center in the Mount Clare community of Baltimore City. IPA marketed and transact- ed the property on behalf of the seller, an unidentified global investment management firm based in New York to an affili- ate of Carlyle Development Group , a private real estate equity firm based in Purchase, NY. The IPA retail team rep- resenting the seller was led by director Christopher Burn- ham , senior managing direc- tor Dean Zang , and director, David Crotts . Mount Clare Junction is situated on a large 15.71-acre parcel and is located just over one mile from the Baltimore CBD and Inner Harbor. The site is in close proximity to the University of Maryland Baltimore Campus (UMB), East Rutherford, NJ — Reflecting the contin- ued strength of the dining sector, Cushman & Wake- field’s New Jersey retail team reported robust leasing activity involving restaurant tenants in New York and New Jersey in 2019. Spearheaded by David Townes and Alana Friedman in the firm’s East Rutherford office, along with Neil Seth in New York, the commercial real estate ser- vices firm’s retail practice inked 13 transactions totaling 36,926 s/f, including first- time operators and national brands.” “The dining sector remains one of the hottest retail cat- egories, both in our region and nationwide,” said Townes, whose team specializes in restaurant leasing. “As local and national brands seek to grow their businesses, the

Although the area has had its fair share of challenges, there is a lot of positive momentum in this part of the City. Mount Clare Junction is po- sitioned between two rapidly developing neighborhoods, Pig Town and Hollins Market. With numerous new develop- ment and redevelopment proj- ects going on in this section of the City, the new owner hopes

to be a part of the positive change. “Mount Clare Junc- tion is a challenging asset but located in a fast gentrifying neighborhood of Baltimore City. We look forward to work- ing with all community leaders and stakeholders to participate in, and expedite, the redevelop- ment of this great neighbor- hood. We believe Mount Clare Junction could play a major pivotal role” said Abdi Ma- hamedi , president of Carlyle Development Group.
