Love Funding Secures $6.66 Million Loan to Refinance Detroit Affordable Senior Housing

Love Funding, a Chicago-based provider of Federal Housing Authority (FHA) multi-family, affordable and health care financing, has provided a $6.66 million loan for the refinancing and repair of Greenhouse Apartments, an affordable senior living community in Detroit.

The financing was facilitated by Love Funding Midwest Regional Director Bruce Gerhart through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) 223(a)(7) loan insurance program, which allows for the refinancing of properties currently insured by FHA, as well as an extension of up to 12 years beyond the original mortgage term.


Greenhouse Apartments offers 208 age-restricted, one-bedroom units and one two-bedroom manager’s unit in a 10-story building. All of the units are covered under a Section 8 contract, and all 209 units are restricted under the Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) program.

The property was built in 1981 and underwent major renovations in 2008 with financing provided by the HUD 221(d)(4) program in conjunction with an award of low-income housing tax credits (LIHTCs). The current refinancing, which locks in a lower interest rate for a 40-year term, will generate  debt service savings and fund necessary repairs.

Greenhouse Apartments will remain under the management of KMG Prestige.
