Dealmaker: NewPoint Provides $69 Million in HUD Refinancing for Denver Multifamily

NewPoint Real Estate Capital LLC provided a $69 million HUD 223(f) loan on behalf of Ascent Westminster LLC to refinance a multifamily property in Westminster, Colo.

The 255-unit property, called Ascent, is an urban-style, mixed-use community with 25,625 square feet of retail space.

Ascent, Westminster, Colo.

The loan was originated by NewPoint Senior Managing Director John D. Motzel. Loan proceeds were used to pay off a two-year lease-up bridge loan provided by Barings, a subsidiary of MassMutual.

“We started the HUD process during lease-up and were able to execute swiftly once Ascent stabilized,” Motzel said. “The 223(f) program is known for its attractive pricing and terms, and we secured a historically low fixed rate by utilizing a green MIP reduction. Ascent is now positioned for long-term success with a 35-year loan term and an attractive step-down prepayment schedule.”

Ascent was built in 2019 and offers access to both Denver and Boulder, Colo. Ten percent of the units at Ascent are affordable at 80% area median income. The five-story elevator building features studio, one- and two-bedroom units, a swimming pool, fitness center, sports simulator, fire pits, barbecue grills and a club room. Ascent also includes 12 townhome-style units with attached two-car garages.

The Carlton Group’s Kyle Morgue served as the broker on the transaction.
