New York City-based lender Dwight Capital has closed on a deal providing nearly $30 million in U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD)-backed financing for the refinance of a suburban Phoenix multifamily asset, Commercial Observer has learned.

The HUD 223(f) refinance was supplied to Villa Vita Apartments, a 183-unit complex located in Peoria, Ariz. The loan includes a green mortgage insurance premium (MIP) reduction to 0.25 percent, since the 22.7-acre property qualifies as green/energy-efficient housing, according to Dwight officials.
