Kiser Group, Chicago’s leading mid-market multifamily brokerage firm, and Affordable Housing Investment Brokerage, Inc. (AHIB) recently brokered the $11,225,000 sale of 167-affordable units in the Bucktown and Logan Square neighborhoods of Chicago. Lyndale Place, located at 2575 W. Lyndale Street, and Renaissance West, located at 2517 W. Fullerton Avenue, were brokered by Kiser Group’s Director Michael D’Agostino and AHIB’s Kyle Shoemaker. Habitat purchased the portfolio from Renaissance Companies.
Both Section 42 LIHTC (Low Income Housing Tax Credits) buildings are stabilized. Lyndale Place is a 67-unit vintage courtyard apartment building in Logan Square offering one-, two- and three-bedroom floorplans. Renaissance West is a 100-unit building in Bucktown comprised of studios.
“This deal took nearly two years to complete. and it’s great to see that these buildings will remain affordable,” said Kiser Group’s Director Michael D’Agostino. “What makes a deal like this complicated is obtaining approval from multiple government bodies for soft-debt assumptions.”
“In addition to LIHTC compliance, this deal was regulated by debt from both IHDA and the City of Chicago, so a qualified affordable housing operator familiar with Chicago was critical. Habitat was the perfect fit,” said Affordable Housing Investment Brokerage’s Managing Director Kyle Shoemaker.
