SPRINGFIELD, Pa., September 3, 2020 (Newswire.com) - InnoVative Capital, LLC acted as Municipal Advisor to the Tulsa Housing Authority (THA) in the RAD conversion and financing of major renovations and modernization of two federally owned, low-income housing properties, Apache Manor Apartments and Sandy Park Apartments. Under the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Rental Assistance Demonstration Program, concurrent with the financings, the two properties have converted to the ownership of the THA, in order to facilitate the incurrence of debt and equity investments to fund capital improvements.
The Apache Manor and Sandy Park Projects are funded with the combination of two FHA 221 (d)4 GNMA collateralized insured mortgage loans underwritten by Prudential Huntoon Paige, 4% Low-Income Tax Credits syndicated through Boston Capital, seller loans, deferred developer fees and THA invested reserves. Additional funding was provided through the sale of collateralized tax-exempt revenue bonds by Raymond James issued through the Oklahoma Housing Finance Agency.
“Despite the obstacles imposed by a global pandemic, the dual-property Apache/Sandy financing elicited strong investor demand, which resulted in very favorable FHA loan terms, an attractive pricing of low-income housing tax credits and record-low municipal bond rates. Lenders and investors appreciated the quality of the properties, as well as the expertise and standard of care that the THA brings to the projects as the developer,” said Alan Richman president & CEO of InnoVative Capital.
“RAD represents the future for not only THA but all PHAs. As we pursue the preservation of our properties through RAD, we are grateful for partners like InnoVative Capital for making projects like the rehabilitation of our Sandy Park and Apache Manor communities come to fruition, even in these very challenging times,” said Aaron Darden, president and CEO of THA.
