Construction Loan

Case Study

Spruce Ridge

NeighborWorks New Horizons | Spruce Ridge

NC’s $7.99 million loan is helping NWNH build the second phase of Spruce Meadows/Spruce Ridge in Stonington, CT. NC’s loan also refinanced the first phase construction loan. The 9% LIHTC development will have 86 apartments, with 20 at market rents.

When we needed to close a construction loan in a short timeframe, in the midst of a disrupted LIHTC market, their team moved quickly and got the deal done. We have always found NC to provide creative solutions to development challenges. ~ Seila Mosquera-Bruno, Executive Director, NeighborWorks New Horizons
