Sasouness and Managing Director Kevin Lifshitz originated a $32.4 million HUD 223(f) cash-out refinance for Springs at Laurens Road, a 272-unit apartment community in Greenville, S.C. Built in 2018, the property occupies 18.4 acres. The loan included a Green Mortgage Insurance Premium reduction set at 25 basis points because the property qualifies as green/energy-efficient housing.
