Marquette Cos. Lands $57M Acquisition Financing Package For Elk Grove Village Apartment Complex

Willow Crossing is a 579-unit apartment community in Elk Grove Village.

Marquette Cos. landed an eight-figure financing package for one of its newest assets. Marquette, which has been a major player in suburban multifamily real estate, secured $56.5M in financing for Willow Crossing, a 579-unit apartment complex in Elk Grove Village.

Marquette and J.P. Morgan Investment Management bought the property for $80M last month from Steadfast Income REIT. The five-year, floating rate loan from Wells Fargo was used in the acquisition and to fund future capital improvements to the property.

For Steadfast, the sale marked a 38% return on investment over its $58M purchase price in 2013. Steadfast refinanced the property with a $58M loan in 2015, according to Cook County records.

Owners of suburban apartment buildings have been capitalizing on investor interest the past couple of years. Suburban apartment sales set a record for deal volume last year, building on a breakout 2016.

HFF's Matthew Schoenfeldt helped Marquette secure the financing. KIG CRE brokered the sale for Steadfast.
