Dwight closed $128 MM in HUD financing for City Market at O Street, a 400-unit mixed-use project located in Washington, D.C. Built in 2013-2014, the property is comprised of two, nine-story apartment buildings, five retail spaces, a ground floor grocery store, and a three-level parking garage. The project’s amenities feature a swimming pool, dog park, rooftop with 360-degree panoramic views, and concierge services. The O Street Market, one of D.C.’s greatest historic landmarks, was preserved and incorporated into the new construction.

The previous loan on the property was also originated and serviced by Dwight Capital. This refinance is the largest loan to date within HUD’s 223(a)(7) multifamily program. Managing Principal, Josh Sasouness, and Managing Director, Brandon Baksh, originated the transaction.

The gated community’s luxury amenities include a resort-style swimming pool, outdoor barbecue area, fitness center, pet playground and spa area, and 5-Star resident services. The loan includes a Green Mortgage Insurance Premium (“MIP”) Reduction set at 25 basis points because the property qualifies as green/energy efficient housing.
