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

Located at 4855 Fox Creek, around 45 minutes northwest of Detroit, the property comprises 14 two- and three-story apartment buildings, a clubhouse with leasing office, and four storage buildings situated on a 39.9-acre site. Its amenities feature a business center, fitness center, swimming pool, picnic area, dog park and small pond.

Officials for Legends of Fox Creek did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
