Transaction Highlights

CDT invested $4.8mm as an 80% investor member the joint venture with Southport. Total acquisition cost was approximately $17mm, and the property was acquired with an existing FHA mortgage assumed by our partnership. Additional financing consisted of a SAIL program loan from the Florida Housing Finance Corporation. Marina Bay serves low and extremely-low income residents with comparable market rents substantially above rents those offered at the property. Southport and CDT invested over $800,000 in upfront capital improvements. This investment secures quality affordable housing for hundreds of seniors in a rapidly growing sub-market.
