Walker & Dunlop’s Eric McGlynn negotiated the financing.

Pre-leasing is underway for the newly constructed, 369-unit, multifamily asset, located at 1331 North Cahuenga Blvd., which is two blocks from Santa Monica Boulevard and Sunset Boulevard. The property is nearing completion and expects to receive a temporary certificate of occupancy shortly.

“We are pleased to continue building a strong lending relationship with both Rescore, a best-in-class REIT and development firm, and one of the nation’s most-distinguished, private-equity firms,” Square Mile Capital Principal Tom Burns said in prepared remarks. “The property will benefit from its walkability to the surrounding nightlife, retail and dining options, as well as its convenient proximity to the surrounding employment base led by the continued Netflix expansion in Hollywood.”

Monthly rents for studios range from $2,058 to $2,990; $2,585 to $4,765 for one-bedroom units; and $3,764 to $14,995 for two bedrooms, according to Apartments.com.

Officials for Rescore and Walker & Dunlop did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
