Mount Baker Associates close $76M HUD loan for Stazione25
SEATTLE - January 24, 2018
Mount Baker Associates LLC invites you to the first day of activities and site tour. Join owners Michael D. Ross and Robert Spitzer as they begin operations and lead a site tour for their overseas investors. Site activities begin Friday at 10:00 a.m., hard hat tour starts at 10:30 a.m. Stazione25 is located at 2615 25th Ave. S., Seattle, WA 98144.
Stazione25 is a two-building, 301-unit development adjacent to the Mount Baker light rail station in Seattle’s Rainier Valley. Project developers Ross and Spitzer recently closed a $76M HUD 221(d)(4) loan for construction and permanent financing of Stazione25 funded through the US Department of Housing and Urban Development arranged by CBRE’s John Taylor and James Bach. Equity investment was provided by local investors paired with EB-5 investment from foreign investors, committing at least $500,000 in job-creating accredited developments procured by Christopher Chen. The developers are encouraging investment from overseas to Mount Baker, which has traditionally been a diverse and welcoming neighborhood.
Slated to open in the summer of 2019, the Stazione25 property is nestled within a well-established neighborhood with a grocery-anchored shopping center and a 43-acre forested Cheasty Greenspace park land next door. Residents will enjoy the walkable neighborhood with the light rail at their doorstep to take them to their favorite destinations, such as Safeco Field and CenturyLink Field, downtown Seattle, SeaTac Airport, Capitol Hill, and the University of Washington. Riders can reach downtown Seattle in 12 minutes or the airport in about 30 minutes. The two buildings will feature three floor plans; studios and one or two-bedroom apartments with energy saving features to reduce environmental impact; and high efficiency HVAC systems, elevators, and low-flow water plumbing fixtures to improve indoor environmental quality. On-site community amenities include a tenant lounge, media and gaming room, 24-hour fitness center, pea patch planters, a rooftop deck, and 221 below grade parking spaces.
