UC Funds provides financing for the renovation of a student housing complex near Purdue University
West Lafayette, IN – December 10, 2018 – UC Funds, a vertically-integrated commercial real estate specialty finance firm, announced today the closing of a $15.85 million first mortgage loan for The Fairway. The Fairway, a 167-unit, 298-bed student housing complex located at 1304 Palmer Drive in West Lafayette, Indiana, is currently 97 percent occupied. The loan will fund the acquisition of the complex and renovations towards in-unit upgrades and amenity improvements.
Sitting on 8.82 acres, the asset consists of 12, three-story buildings and one clubhouse. Initial construction began in 1983 with nine buildings totaling 108 units and 180 beds. In 2007, a full-scale renovation was performed to add three buildings with 59 units and 118 beds. Amenities include an outdoor swimming pool, dog park, fitness center, tanning room, balconies, and a clubhouse containing a leasing office and community recreational room. The Fairway also provides 291 parking spaces for residents and features a designated bus stop for the University-provided shuttle.
“The Fairway transaction marks UC Funds’ second deal with the sponsor and represents our ongoing commitment to help further shape the student housing sector,” said Daniel M. Palmier, President and CEO of UC Funds. “Across the U.S., university enrollment rates have surged, including at Purdue University. As a result, there is now a lack of local student housing. We are pleased to do our part in meeting rising demand by financing the renovations of this community to today’s students’ standards.”
The Fairway is located two miles north of Purdue University’s main campus. As of 2018, this campus had approximately 43,400 students enrolled, the highest in its history. Bordering The Fairway is a Purdue-owned golf course and additional residential housing, both single-family homes, and high-density student housing.
