LaTerra Development And QuadReal Secure $198.5 Million Construction Loan For Burbank CA Apartment Project

Nov 19, 2021 11:41 AM ET

LaTerra Development, a Los Angeles-based developer, together with QuadReal Property Group, a global real estate company, announced the closing of a $198.5 million construction loan for the development of 573 apartment homes (69 of which are affordable housing units) adjacent to a transit stop in downtown Burbank, CA at 777 N Front Street. BMO Harris Bank, Administrative Agent, and Citizens, Joint Lead Arranger, provided the construction financing.

Burbank is a jobs-rich, housing-starved market. Only one apartment project has been built in Burbank in over 20 years. At the same time, Burbank touts the lowest office vacancy rate of any city in the United States at less than 5%. Burbank, known as the “media capital of the world,” is home to leading media companies such as Disney, Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network, and Warner Brothers. Netflix recently signed a 171,000 square foot lease near the 777 N Front Street property to add to its existing and growing presence in the neighborhood. With an abundance of jobs but a dearth of housing, Burbank has the highest jobs to housing ratio of any city in California.    

“LaTerra, QuadReal, BMO Harris Bank, and Citizens comprise a premier partnership well suited for a project of this magnitude in such an exemplary location,” said Chris Tourtellotte, Managing Director for LaTerra Development.

Consistent with LaTerra and QuadReal’s objectives of building sustainable and green communities, the project will include features such as electric vehicle charging stations, solar panel integration, and LEED Gold certification.

Eastdil Secured acted as exclusive financial advisor on behalf of LaTerra and QuadReal in connection with the construction loan.
