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

Located at 900 Walton Way about 25 miles outside of Atlanta, Walton Centennial Apartments comprises 10 apartment buildings located on 43 acres, which include a nature preserve. The 2002-built property’s amenities include a business center, a fitness center, a library, a playground, a swimming pool and a walking trail.

Monthly rents at the property range from $1,745 for one-bedroom units to $3,622 for three-bedrooms, according to Apartments.com.  

Officials for Walton Communities did not immediately respond for comment on the loan.
