That outstanding loan was reduced to $6.5 million when Auburn Trace sold a property — 157 affordable housing units on 17.5 acres at 1000 Auburn Circle North and a 7,654-square-foot private school building at 675 Auburn Avenue.

The complaint also names the City of Delray Beach regarding a $768,000 loan and the U.S. Small Business Administration over a $400,700 loan. [South Florida Business Journal] – Christopher Cameron
