Love Funding secures $40.6 million loan for construction of upscale apartment community in Fort Myers

Love Funding, one of the nation's leading providers of FHA multifamily, affordable and healthcare financing, announced the closing of a $40.6 million loan to the developer, Tampa-based Aileron Investment Manage-ment, for the construction and permanent financing of Grand Central Apartments, an upscale market-rate multifamily community in Fort Myers.

Grand Central Apartments will consist of two four-story elevator buildings and two three-story walk-up buildings, comprised of 280 one- and two-bedroom luxury-appointed units and high-end community amenities. The property is located within the Cleveland Avenue Redevelopment Area, which the city has targeted for commercial and mixed-use development.

The development will also benefit from tax-increment financing (TIF), which was approved by the Fort Myers Community Redevelopment Agency, as well as storm water nutrient bank credits, which is a new economic development tool being used by the city to incentivize private investment and redevelopment. Municipalities use tax increment financing to promote economic development projects or public improvement projects by utilizing the incremental increase in property taxes to subsidize development costs.
