JLL secured $34.5 million in financing for Waterscape Apartments, a 180-unit, garden-style apartment community in Fairfield, California.

JLL announced today that it has secured $34.5 million in financing for Waterscape Apartments, a 180-unit, garden-style apartment community in Fairfield, California.

JLL worked on behalf of a joint venture between Glencrest Group and Angelo, Gordon & Co, L.P. to place the 10-year, 71.5 percent LTV, floating-rate loan with Freddie Mac. The loan includes five years of interest-only payments and will be serviced by Holliday Fenoglio Fowler LP, a JLL company and a Freddie Mac Optigo lender. This transaction marks the second acquisition for the joint venture, which earlier this year acquired Vineyard Gardens in Santa Rosa, California. JLL led the capitalization of that transaction as well.

Waterscape Apartments is situated on 14.65 acres at 3001 North Texas Street just east of Interstate 80 in the Solano County community of Fairfield. The 33-building project consists of a mix of one- and two-bedroom units averaging 978 square feet. Homes feature high-quality finishes, including renovated kitchens, in-unit washers and dryers, fireplaces and private balconies. Common-area amenities at the recently upgraded property include a multi-level fitness center, contemporary clubroom, and resort-style pool.

The JLL Capital Markets debt placement team representing the borrower included Senior Managing Directors Peter Smyslowski and Charles Halladay and Analyst Jonah Aeylon.

“The acquisition of Waterscape is an excellent representation of Glencrest’s ability to source properties in an ultra-competitive environment that will generate above-market, risk-adjusted returns,” Smyslowski said.

“We are excited and honored to expand our new company with the support of Angelo Gordon, Freddie Mac and JLL,” Mike Bergelson of Glencrest added. “Waterscape combines an attractive physical plant with a convenient location poised for growth. It exemplifies the type of community we want to add to our portfolio.”
