JLL Capital Markets has arranged $5.8 million in financing for Benjamin Square, a 60-unit affordable housing community in Eaton, Colorado.

JLL represented the borrower, Brikwell, to secure the fixed-rate senior loan through Freddie Mac Multifamily. JLL and Freddie Mac were able to craft a structure that provided the borrower time to renew and extend the Project-Based Section 8 HAP contract before acquisition and loan closing, preserving affordability at Benjamin Square for 20 years. The loan will be serviced by JLL Real Estate Capital, LLC, a Freddie Mac Optigo℠ lender.

Benjamin Square consists of 10 single-story buildings that are 100% Section 8 affordable housing. The property was completed in 1979 and 1980 and offers all one-bedroom units. Community amenities include a laundry room, community lounge and a covered gazebo/picnic area. 

Located at 55 Juniper Ave., Benjamin Square is close to downtown Greeley and about an hour north of downtown Denver. The 2.86-acre site is adjacent to Eaton Elementary School, Middle School and High School is a primarily residential area of the community.

JLL’s Debt Advisory team representing the borrower was led by Managing Directors Brock Yaffe and Tony Nargi.
