CBRE Capital Markets has announced $95 million in refinancing for The Exchange and Barlow, two multifamily properties totaling 486 units in the San Marco neighborhood of Jacksonville, Fla.

Philip Rachels, Jeff Kinney, and Brett Bosworth with CBRE worked on behalf of the borrowers, a joint venture between Chance Partners and EJF Capital, to secure the 10-year, full-term, interest-only financing provided by Metropolitan Life Insurance Company.

“We are pleased to have represented long-term client Chance Partners and their capital partner, EJF, who refinanced the construction loan with long-term, non-recourse debt,” said CBRE Senior Vice President Philip Rachels. “Jacksonville is experiencing unprecedented growth, and these assets sit in a very desirable location with tremendous visibility and accessibility, which enabled us to source multiple life company quotes in a very competitive bid process.”

The Exchange is a 196-unit property located at 1810 Bertha Street. Barlow is a 290-unit property located at 1900 Olevia Street. Both properties are at the gateway to historic San Marco and proximate to Interstate 95.

The properties represent two of five investments that EJF has made with Chance Partners in the Jacksonville marketplace.
