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

Located at 500 Coachman Drive, The Gables of Troy comprises 42 three-story apartment buildings and a clubhouse. The community’s amenities feature dog park, media room, fitness center, racquetball court and two outdoor pools.

Representatives for The Gables of Troy did not immediately respond to a request for comment about the loan.
