The firm received an $80.4 million mortgage from MF1 Capital — a multifamily bridge lending and preferred equity platform founded with the backing of CBRE in 2018. The lender did not immediately respond to a request for comment. 

The mortgage is for nearly 85 percent of the purchase price. Cypress Grove Apartments could not be reached for comment. 

The property holds 814 units in several four-story multifamily units and the complex was built in 1970, according to property records. The complex holds just over 1 million square feet and was last sold by an affiliate of private equity firm Code Capital Partners in 2020 for $44.6 million, TRD reported.

Hodges Ward Elliott’s Daniel Parker brokered the sale, TRD reported.
