Highland Realty Capital secured a $10.3mm bridge loan for a 168-unit, 644 bed student housing property in Morgantown, WV on behalf of Orange County based NB Private Capital.  The 2-year loan is structured to roll into a FNMA DUS perm loan upon stabilization.

The $15mm acquisition by NBCP is their first since splitting from Nelson Brothers earlier this year.  The property was built in 2002 and they plan on completing $1.58mm in interior and exterior renovations over the next year.  “It is the closest off campus student housing project in Morgantown but it is need of the typical unit and common area amenity upgrades that students are looking for today,” says Mike Guterman, Principal at Highland who arranged the financing.

NBCP has an existing portfolio of 21 properties consisting of 4,588 beds.  Most recently, they have commenced a $3mm renovation at the 971-bed Campus Commons at Washington State University.
