Putnam Green Apartments – Cambridge, Massachusetts

Furthering the transition of a formerly industrial section of Cambridge into a cohesive residential community, Nolan Sheehan Patten represented Homeowner’s Rehab., Inc. (HRI) in utilizing a ground lease structure to acquire and finance this new, 40-unit, affordable housing complex. The units have been built to satisfy, and are in the process of being certified for, the LEED for Homes Platinum standard. We advised HRI in assembling a financing package of over $13 million, which consisted of construction/permanent financing from TD Bank, N.A. and Massachusetts Housing Partnership Fund Board, public financing from the City of Cambridge, DHCD, CEDAC and MassHousing, and equity financing from the Massachusetts Housing Equity Fund, Inc. Of the 40 units, 6 are reserved for families with incomes below 30% median income and 3 are accessible to individuals with mobility and/or sensory impairments. This development now fills the streetscape along Putnam Avenue and Sidney Street and adds to the residential vitality of the neighborhood.

Community Health and Social Services Center – Detroit, Michigan

Nolan Sheehan Patten represented Capital Link, Inc. in obtaining a full recourse loan from The Kresge Foundation, and thereafter utilizing the proceeds to provide an upper-tier loan to the Community Health and Social Services Center, Inc., a federally qualified health center in southwest Detroit. The loan proceeds were then leveraged, along with capital campaign funds, grant proceeds and tax credit equity, through the New Markets Tax Credit structure to provide the health center with over $17 million in financing for the expansion and construction of its new primary care and dental facility. We assisted our client in identifying a structure that would deliver appropriate collateral and security for its own full recourse loan obligations while at the same time respecting the NMTC structure.
