HFF Arranges Financing Totaling $190.873M for 6 Apartment Communities in Texas, Alabama and Colorado
DENVER, CO – May 20, 2019 – Holliday Fenoglio Fowler, L.P. (HFF) announces financing totaling $190.873 million for six apartment communities comprising 1,843 units in Texas, Alabama and Colorado.
The HFF team worked on behalf of the borrower, Advenir, Inc., to secure the seven-year, fixed-rate loans in six separate transactions through Freddie Mac. Two of the transactions were acquisition financing and the remaining four transactions were refinances from floating- to fixed-rate loans. The refinances were in line with the borrower’s strategy to mitigate interest rates amid the volatile interest-rate environment. The fixed-rate conversions took the ongoing LIBOR adjustment risk off the table and ultimately provided the borrower with a reduction in the all-in rate for each property with additional interest-only amortization. All the loans will be serviced by HFF, a Freddie Mac Optigo℠ lender for Conventional Loans.
“At Advenir, we continually review our portfolio to increase value through interest-rate mitigation,” said Stephen L. Vecchitto, managing director and principal of Advenir, Inc. “HFF has been a valuable partner in assisting us with our interest-rate mitigation strategy as well as structuring new financing on our acquisitions.”
The properties in the portfolio are: Advenir at Mayfield, a 300-unit property located at 3200 Bromley Place in the West Texas community of Midland; Advenir at The Meadows, a 320-unit property located at 5101 N. A Street in Midland; Advenir at Stone Park, a 480-unit property located at 6160 E. Sam Houston Parkway North in Houston; Advenir at Wynstone, a 258-unit property located at 6464 E. Sam Houston Parkway North in Houston; Advenir at Station 121, a 255-unit property located at 2000 2nd Ave South in Birmingham; and Advenir at Bear Valley, a 230-unit property located at 3550 S. Kendall Street in Denver, Colorado. The properties averaged 94.8 percent occupied overall.
The HFF team representing the borrower included senior managing director Eric Tupler and managing directors Josh Simon, Cortney Cole, Chip Sykes and director Matthew Putterman.

SAN FRANCISCO, CA – May 9, 2019 – HFF announced today it is working on behalf of BUILD, a San Francisco residential development company, to arrange investment partners for the construction phase of its India Basin development located within a rare opportunity zone in San Francisco, California.
With the City of San Francisco’s approvals secured, BUILD’s vision will transform the former gravel yard on the San Francisco waterfront into a pedestrian-first, walkable residential village. The development lies within a designated opportunity zone, as established by the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017, which allows for significant tax benefits to the investment. Originally 30 independent parcels that have been combined into one master-project, the size of the development and its location in an opportunity zone is particularly noteworthy in San Francisco, a city known for its scarcity of available real estate.
The land is entitled for approximately 3.4 million gross square feet of new development, including approximately 1.5 million gross square feet of residential space. Once constructed, the mixed-use village will include 1,575 residential units, 200,000 square feet of commercial space, expansive open and recreation space, enhanced waterfront access and underground parking.
India Basin is in San Francisco’s Eastern Waterfront immediately south of the Dogpatch and Mission Bay neighborhoods and allows for easy access to the major job centers in downtown San Francisco and the peninsula, including burgeoning life science hubs in both Mission Bay and Oyster Point. Nearby, new commercial space and housing are in development at Hunter’s Point Shipyard and Candlestick Point to the south. India Basin has a reputation for being one of the sunniest neighborhoods in San Francisco and boasts a storied history and creative scene that complement areas of picturesque landscape and a rich ecology along San Francisco’s beautiful shoreline.
“BUILD, in partnership with HFF, is seeking investment partners for the construction phase of this unique development,” said Scott Eschelman of BUILD. “We are excited to build this fully entitled parcel in such an incredible neighborhood and look forward to bringing in new partners to make our plans a reality. From the beginning, BUILD has worked closely with neighbors, the city and the broader community to ensure that this project in India Basin is a welcome addition to San Francisco’s Eastern Waterfront. BUILD has the local relationships and knowledge to make this project a success.”
The HFF equity placement team representing BUILD included senior managing director Charles Halladay, managing director Jordan Angel and senior director Chris Gandy.
Gandy stated that the site’s location and size provide a once-in-a-lifetime chance to develop an entire community within San Francisco. “India Basin represents a unique investment prospect in a transformative development on the Eastern Waterfront of San Francisco. The long-term nature of the entitlements and location in an opportunity zone will provide investors with tremendous optionality for value creation over time in one of the most constrained residential real estate markets in the world. This site represents one of the best prospects in the United States to take advantage of the significant tax benefits available through opportunity zone investment.”
