NorthMarq completes $27,397,000 refinance of The Morton Apartments in Salt Lake City, Utah

SEATTLE, WASHINGTON (December 16, 2020) – Jake Leibsohn, vice president of NorthMarq’s Seattle-based regional office arranged the $27,397,000 refinance of The Morton Apartments on behalf of Timberlane Partners. The 137-unit mid-rise multifamily property is located at 245 S 200 E in Salt Lake City, Utah. The transaction was structured with a 10-year term and 10 years of interest only payments. The rate is fixed at 2.76 percent for the life of the loan. NorthMarq secured financing for the borrower through its in-house Fannie Mae platform. 

“The Morton qualified for a Green Globes certificate which enabled Fannie Mae to offer a very competitive rate and terms. The refinance allowed Timberlane to take-out their construction loan and return a significant amount of equity while still in the tail end of lease-up,” said Leibsohn.
