Los Angeles – November 28, 2017 – Canyon Partners Real Estate LLC® (“Canyon”) has provided a $63.5 million senior loan to an affiliate of PHK Development, Inc. (“PHK”) to finance the ground-up construction of a seven-story, 162-unit condominium project located off NE Multnomah in Portland, Oregon.
Canyon’s experience as a capital provider across asset classes includes a long history in residential condominium investing. The firm has committed over $1.4 billion since inception to condominium projects nationwide through senior loans, mezzanine loans, preferred equity and equity, facilitating over $3.9 billion of total project capitalizations. This is Canyon’s first condominium investment in the Portland metro area.
“Portland continues to be one of the fastest-growing metropolitan areas in the United States. However, the supply of new, for-sale homes has not kept pace with this growth,” said Patrick H. Kessi, President of PHK. “With Canyon’s extensive experience financing and investing in condominium and other commercial real estate developments across the country, we are gratified that they understand our vision of meeting the needs of this evolving community.”
This new construction development is centrally located at the convergence of the Lloyd District and Sullivan’s Gulch and will offer residents views of downtown Portland and the Cascade mountain range. When complete, the architecturally-distinctive project will comprise a mix of one-bedroom, two-bedroom, and penthouse units featuring up to 11’ ceilings, high-end finishes, and an assortment of amenities, including 24-hour concierge service, fitness center, guest suite, bicycle lounge, pet wash, club lounge and outdoor amenity deck. Unit finishes will be top of the line and feature high end appliances, solid surface quartz countertops, in-unit washer/dryers, and central air conditioning. Additionally, about a third of the units will have outdoor patios or balconies.
Holliday Fenoglio Fowler, L.P. (“HFF”) arranged the financing with a team led by Tom Wilson, Senior Managing Director and Bryan Clark, Managing Director.
“This project was conceived to address the supply-demand imbalance in Portland’s for-sale housing market,” said HFF’s Wilson. “With PHK’s excellent track record, local presence and extensive experience, we are confident this project will be a great success and bring much-needed for-sale housing units to the market.”
This will be one of the first new construction condominium offerings to be built in Portland this cycle. The project is currently under construction and scheduled to deliver in late 2019.
