Axis 2300 Apts

NEWPORT BEACH, CALIFORNIA (May 2, 2023) — Alex Kane, Joe Giordani, Brendan Golding and Alvin Cao of Northmarq’s Newport Beach debt and equity team, negotiated the $31.6 million internal refinance of the Axis 2300 Apartments. The 115-unit multifamily property is located at 2300 Dupont Drive in Irvine, California. Northmarq secured the permanent-fixed rate loan for Advanced Real Estate through its Optigo status as a Freddie Mac lender.

“This transaction was a cash out refinance of a Fannie Mae acquisition floater which Northmarq had originated in 2021,” said Kane. “This Green Up loan provided the best pricing for Advanced, and they received credit for the energy savings in underwriting. The cash out proceeds will be used to install solar panels and additional green improvements.”

The Class-A property was constructed to condo level specifications in 2010. The property is located in the highly coveted Irvine market, west of the 405 Freeway within the Irvine Business Complex submarket. Located in the heart of the Orange County Metro, the property is walking distance to John Wayne Airport and only minutes to Newport Beach. It contains oversized studios, 1-, 2- and 3- bedroom floor plans. The pet friendly community is situated in a fantastic live-work-play neighborhood, featuring high-tech companies and luxury restaurants.  

Apartment amenities include: Condo-style tall ceilings, stainless steel appliances, gas range, custom cabinets, granite countertops, dual bathroom sinks, walk-in closets, in-unit washer and dryer, and urban wood-style flooring. Community amenities include: Resort-style pool, poolside cabanas, sparkling spa, fitness center, BBQ grills, covered parking, wellness certification for air and water purification, on-site and on-call maintenance, and bike-storage.
