Northmarq announces $41.5 million sale and $25.3 million financing of Nav850 in Portsmouth, Virginia


WASHINGTON D.C. (Sept. 26, 2023) — Wink Ewing, Chris Doerr, Will Harvey, Shack Stanwick and Matt Straughan of Northmarq’s Washington D.C. and Richmond Investment Sales offices collaborated to broker the sale of Nav850. The 246-unit multifamily property is located at 850 Crawford Parkway in Portsmouth, Virginia. Northmarq represented the sellers, Blackfin Real Estate Investors LLC and Capital Solutions, Inc. in the sale.

“This sale represents strong pricing during a challenging time in the capital markets.” said Ewing. “The buyers will benefit from continued organic rent growth in the submarket and have the ability to further value creation via the ongoing unit renovation program. The offering received above normal interest due to the location, quality of build and attractive basis.” 

Northmarq’s New York Metro and Richmond Debt and Equity teams of Keith Braddish, Keith Wells, Eli Levenfeld and Win Martin secured the acquisition financing of $25.3 million on behalf of the buyer, Foxfield LLC, whose acquisition team is led by Noam Kleinman and David Zemmol. The Fannie Mae permanent-fixed rate financing was structured on a five-year interest-only term. The buyer also utilized the Fannie Mae Green Rewards Program which requires property owners to commit to improvements that will lead to energy savings. The program enables the sponsor to secure additional proceeds and a more attractive interest rate.

“The client was not only afforded a very competitive loan from Fannie Mae with Green Rewards pricing, but they were also able to understand the market dynamics due to the partnership of the Northmarq IS and D + E teams,” Braddish said.

Built in 2006, Nav850 is a garden-style apartment complex located in Olde Towne Portsmouth along the Portsmouth Seawall walking path. Surrounded by popular entertainment, historic neighborhoods and local dining, the newly renovated property is in a location attractive to renters and tourists alike.
