Dwight Capital Provides $33M HUD Loan for South Carolina Multifamily Asset


Dwight Capital has closed on a transaction supplying nearly $33 million in U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD)-backed financing for the refinance of a South Carolina townhouse-style apartment community, Commercial Observer has learned.

The New York City-based lender provided the HUD 223(f) cash-out refinance to Spring at Laurens Road, a 272-unit asset in Greenville, S.C. The loan includes a green mortgage insurance premium (MIP) reduction to 0.25 percent, since the 18.4-acre property is designated as green/energy-efficient housing, according to Dwight officials.
