McKinney Capital & Naturally Affordable Housing Break Ground on Workforce Housing Development in North Park Neighborhood

Mon, 10/03/2022 - 02:29
SAN DIEGO, CA - McKinney Capital & Naturally Affordable Housing held a groundbreaking ceremony for its workforce housing apartment building located at 4233 Kansas Street in North Park, San Diego. North Park is one of San Diego's oldest and most desirable neighborhoods, consisting of medium and lower-density urban development. The neighborhood has gone through gentrification over the last decade and is currently one of San Diego's premier arts and entertainment districts. North Park was recently recognized by Forbes as one of the "Hippest Neighborhoods in America". Damian McKinney shared, "Our Kansas Street Workforce Housing development aims to help solve the lack of affordable housing for moderate-income working families and young professionals." The housing affordability gap in San Diego is among the highest in California, with the average household shelling out 35% of their income for housing and 25% of the population spending half of their income on rent. The City of San Diego has been identified as one of the least affordable cities in the United States. Local leaders have described this issue as the single greatest threat to our region's economy. Approximately 70% of moderate-income households cannot afford home ownership, and more than 30% cannot afford rent. To accommodate San Diego's growing population and continued economic development, housing production must meet both present and future demands. The Kansas Street Apartments are being built for San Diego working families earning the median household income.

Post-new construction and renovation in 2022, Rosefield Village now serves twice as many families. Rosefield Village incorporates significant green building techniques and universal design strategies to maximize livability and visit-ability for households with an array of family sizes, age ranges, and talents. This building was designed with sustainability in mind and is in-process of obtaining Green Point Rated Gold certification – an industry standard for sustainable development. Rooftop solar panels will provide energy to offset 20% of common area energy usage. Rosefield Village has Bay-Friendly rated landscaping which incorporates practices of water saving, maintenance labor savings, non-toxic weed suppression, reduction of run off, and potential greenhouse gas reduction are throughout the property. Additionally, flooring throughout the building is made of sustainable materials; energy efficient lighting is throughout; and all appliances are modern energy efficient models. "The City of Alameda is pleased that the innovative transformation of Rosefield Village, located in the vibrant West End District, has created almost twice as many affordable apartments as the original project, at a time when affordable housing is desperately needed" says Mayor Marilyn Ezzy Ashcraft. The Housing Authority is pleased to be able to provide the City of Alameda with ninety-two additional affordable Family apartment homes and appreciates all who have been involved in the process. Thank you especially to the Alameda City Council for its continued support of affordable housing and to the City staff who worked alongside Housing Authority staff from the project's first development applications through lease up. This $72 million dollar investment would not be possible without numerous funding partners – The land is owned by the Housing Authority of the City of Alameda, and its development partner, Island City Development, is the sponsor and developer. Funding includes 4% Low Income Housing Tax Credits with Tax-Exempt Bond financing and State Tax Credits from the California Tax Credit Allocation Committee and the California Debt Limit Allocation Committee, Alameda County A1 funds, former redevelopment funds from the Alameda Unified School District passed-through the Housing Authority, additional Housing Authority funds, CDBG, HOME funds, a City of Alameda fee waiver, a project based voucher contract from the Housing Authority, and loans from Bank of America, N.A. and Greystone Servicing Company LLC.

Gioia McCarthy, Bank of America President San Francisco – East Bay, adds, "Congratulations to Island City Development and AHA for the successful completion of this significant construction project.

The Palladius team, specifically Nitin and Nick, were a pleasure to work with on this transaction. From deal awarding to closing, they never wavered even in a challenging debt market and provided flawless execution. We look forward to continuing to develop and deliver Citizen House communities across the Austin MSA and look forward to working with Palladius on future opportunities.

MCLEAN, VA - American Real Estate Partners ( AREP ), announced the company s acquisition of 1101 King Street in the heart of Old Town, Alexandria. This is AREP s fifth investment through its Strategic Opportunity Fund III ( Fund III ) which is now 60% deployed. The company has selected Cooper Carry to lead the project redevelopment design and residential hospitality design team RD Jones for the interiors. Construction is set to begin in July 2023. The redeveloped 200,000 square foot building will contain approximately 200 apartments and 17,500 square feet of retail and office space on its first floor. This latest acquisition is part of AREP s broader strategic investment focus targeting industrial, data center, residential, and office assets across East Coast urban & urbanized suburban markets. The acquisition included the simultaneous purchase of all condominium units in the office building from the seven owners. All office leases were restructured to allow for a deconversion of the office condominium and redevelopment into a mixed-use property. AREP will maintain the ground floor retail leases including Orange Theory and Paris Baguette throughout construction so as not to disrupt the community amenities. Located in the heart of King Street s bustling restaurant and retail corridor, 1101 King St. is walking distance to everything residents need to live, work and play. Once completed, the reimagined property will provide residents with a club room, fitness center, and a rooftop social terrace—with incredible views of Old Town. Premium access to live entertainment and waterfront park activities are just steps from the property s front door, and the King Street metro is a 10-minute walk and only three stops to Amazon HQ2. Aligned with AREP s portfolio-wide focus on wellness and value-rich experiences, 1101 King St. will offer world-class features and curated amenities, including shared hybrid workspaces and premium hospitality concierge services. With thoughtful consideration of the post-COVID shift to hybrid work, the redesigned 1101 King St will feature larger than average unit sizes that enable indoor and outdoor living, incorporating deep terraces and in-home workspaces. We are thrilled with the acquisition of 1101 King. It sits in the very center of historic Old Town Alexandria and rises four stories above the buildings around it with views of the entire city. The balconies on each level are more like terraces, with many 10 to 20 feet in depth. It is a one-of-a-kind asset that can never be replicated, said Doug Fleit, Co-Founder & CEO of AREP. This asset illustrates AREP s strategy of looking for special properties in vibrant and emerging locations that can be repurposed for residential use. This office to multifamily conversion acquisition is one of our core investment strategies and reinforces our ability to identify strong investments across diversified product types and markets to deliver value, said Brian Katz, Co-Founder & President of AREP.
