Red Oak Capital Holdings Provides $9 Million Bridge Loan to Renovate Bon Air Apartments in Indianapolis

by Channing Hamilton

INDIANAPOLIS — Red Oak Capital Holdings LLC has provided a $4 million bridge loan for Bon Air Apartments, a 42-unit asset in Indianapolis. Bon Air Apartments consists of a trio of three-story buildings, which were originally constructed in 1960. The borrower, a group of professionals doing business as 21 West QOZ LLC, will use the financing to pay off an existing loan and complete a gut renovation of the three buildings. The new owners also plan to build a new building on an adjacent vacant parcel. Common area and amenity spaces will connect all four buildings.

Paul Meyer of Bristol Capital arranged the loan, which features interest-only payments, a two-year term and two six-month extension options. The nonrecourse debt represents 54.4 percent of the property’s estimated stabilized value of $7.3 million. Stratos Athanassiades, Thomas Gorski and Jesus Martinez of Red Oak originated and underwrote the debt under the firm’s Opportunistic Bridge Loan Program, which is a higher-leverage product with a small equity component for assets with a substantial value-creation element.
