CAMPAIGN: Key Supports Affordable Housing

CONTENT: Press Release

CLEVELAND, Aug. 21, 2017 /3BL Media/— KeyBank Community Development Lending & Investment (CDLI) has partnered with Riverside Capital to provide a $12.7 million LIHTC equity investment to help Michaels Development Company rehabilitate Skyline Gardens Apartments, an existing affordable housing development for families in Albany, NY.

Skyline Gardens Apartments features 188 LIHTC regulated units serving families that earn up to 60% AMI. Of these units, 131 will be covered by a 20-year Housing Assistance Payments contract allowing families who are eligible for the HAP subsidized units to pay no more than 30 percent of their income toward rent.

Skyline Gardens Apartments was originally built in 1973. It was last renovated more than 20 years ago.

The project will be financed with a combination of LIHTC equity and tax-exempt bonds provided by the New York State Housing Finance Agency (NYS HFA), a soft loan through the NYS HFA, a House NY Mitchell Lama subsidy loan and existing reserves.

Tori O’Brien of KCDC arranged the financing.
