WASHINGTON, D.C. — Red Oak Capital Holdings has provided a $5.8 million bridge loan for Hawaii Avenue Apartments, an affordable housing community located in Washington, D.C.’s Brookland neighborhood. The interest-only loan features a 12-month term with two six-month extension options and an all-in interest rate of 11 percent. The financing was underwritten based on the property’s forecast stabilized value of $8 million.
The borrower, an entity doing business as Legacy Lofts II & III, plans to use the funds to acquire and rehabilitate the property into 22 apartments that will be rented under the D.C. Housing Authority’s Choice Voucher Program. The project involves converting the vacant units at the two buildings into 12 two-bedroom and 10 three-bedroom apartments. The rehabilitation is expected to be finished within a year. Red Oak Capital expects the asset to be fully stabilized by late 2025.
