Meridian Capital Group arranged the transaction with a team led by Peter Martz, Noam Kaminetzky and Jason Grimm out of the company’s Boca Raton, Fla. office.

“Despite market volatility as a result of unanticipated world events, including the Russian invasion of Ukraine, we were able to close this loan without issues or adjustments,” Martz said in a statement. 

Located at 609 Virginia Avenue Northeast, the property is one of only two multi-housing rental communities in the historic Virginia Highland neighborhood. The property underwent renovations in the summer of 2020 with luxury upgrades in 40 percent of the units. 

Officials for MSC Investments and H.I.G. did not immediately return requests for comment.
