Five multifamily properties in San Antonio, Texas, will soon make the transition from de facto to officially designated affordable housing.

California’s Pico Union Housing secured a $43 million bridge loan through Ohio’s Rose Community Capital to refinance and find long-term funding for its Dolores Terravista property portfolio in San Antonio.

The portfolio consists of five apartment complexes with a total of 777 units. They were built in the 1970s and have been considered “naturally occurring affordable housing,” a term used for residential rental properties that are affordable compared with other rentals in their markets but are not subsidized by any government program.

Nonprofit company ​​Pico Union Housing bought the portfolio in 2020 using a short-term bridge loan and was delayed in securing longer-term financing during the pandemic. Rose Community Capital will pay off the existing debt and assist with permanent financing.

The properties will be preserved through a use agreement restricting 51 percent of the units as affordable to residents making 80 percent of the area median income or less. The San Antonio-New Braunfels metro area median income was $74,100 for a family of four and $51,900 for a one-person household in 2021. The apartment complexes are in the Westside and Port San Antonio neighborhoods. They have one- to three-bedroom units, cabanas, swimming pools, fitness centers and onsite laundry facilities. Average monthly rent will range from $834 for a one-bedroom apartment to $1,156 for a three-bedroom townhome.

Los Angeles-based Pico Union Housing is a grassroots community developer that began expanding to parts of the country outside California in 2019. The group plans to renovate the San Antonio properties using HUD low-income housing tax credits and bonds and an FHA-insured 221(d)(4) substantial rehabilitation loan from Rose Community Capital. The property can revert back to market rate after 30 years, as required by the federal tax-credit program, in addition to any term required by the state.

Rose Community Capital is a Cleveland-based arm of community development company Jonathan Rose that specializes in the origination, underwriting and placement of FHA-insured multifamily mortgages.

The bridge loan was financed by investment manager Impact Community Capital through the Impact Mortgage Opportunities Fund, a multi-investor fund created to preserve affordable rental housing in the United States.
