The HUD-backed transaction includes a green mortgage insurance premium reduction set at 0.25 percent, since the property qualifies as green/energy-efficient housing, according to Dwight officials.

Located at 2400 Millbrook Drive about 40 miles northwest of Chicago — the 2013-built property features 11 apartment buildings, two garage buildings, and a leasing office/clubhouse. Its amenities include a gym, business center, swimming pool with sun deck, outdoor grilling and lounge areas.

Monthly rents at Algonquin Square Apartments range from $1,798 for one-bedroom units to $2,759 for two bedrooms, according to Apartments.com.
