Capmark Finance Inc. said Wednesday it funded a $10.6 million floating-rate, interim loan for the acquisition of Chapel Lakes Apartments in Wetumpka, Ala. The 90 percent LTV loan for the 152-unit multifamily property of 189,280 square feet has a three-year term with interest-only payments.

A $23 million loan was collateralized by the Creek’s Edge at Stony Point, a 202-unit Class A multifamily community in Richmond, Va. Holliday said it placed the 10-year, fixed-rate loan with Quadrant Real Estate Advisors.

Allianz provided a 5-year $25 million interest only loan for the acquisition of Heathergate, a 202-unit multifamily property in Philadelphia, Penn., NorthMarq announced.

Holliday said it arranged acquisition financing of $26 million, and preferred equity for Townlake of Coppell, a 398-unit multifamily property in Coppell, Texas. CNC Investments agreed to an 11-year, fixed-rate acquisition financing that was placed with Freddie Mac, Holliday said.

A regional lender in Los Angeles, Calif., provided a $13.4 million loan for acquisition of land consisting of 40,000 square feet of commercially entitled property in downtown San Diego, NorthMarq reported. The loan is based on a 24-month term with a one 12-month extension option at interest only for term.
