CLEVELAND, January 28, 2019 /3BL Media/ — KeyBank announced today $50.4 million in total combined financing for a tax-exempt bond transaction to support Koelbel & Company’s construction of Diagonal Crossing. Diagonal Crossing is a 105-unit garden-style apartment community that is income-restricted for families earning at or below 60% AMI in Boulder, CO.

KeyBank’s Community Development Lending & Investment (CDLI) team provided a $24.7 million construction loan and $10.4 million in Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) equity. Additionally, KeyBank Real Estate Capital arranged a $15.3 million permanent loan through a forward commitment for Fannie Mae to issue a mortgage-backed security (MBS) as a part of its M.TEBs product line. 

Diagonal Crossing will be developed on two parcels of land called Lot 3 and Lot 6, offering a total of 105 new affordable housing units. Lot 3 will feature 85 affordable housing units in two, three-story walk-up buildings and one, two-story walk-up building.
