NorthMarq Arranges $45MM in Opportunity Zone Equity for a Multifamily Development in Seattle

SEATTLE, WASHINGTON (May 1, 2020) – Jake Leibsohn, Vice President and Ron Peterson Senior Vice President of NorthMarq’s Seattle-based regional office arranged $45,000,000 in JV equity for the development of 12th & Yesler on behalf of co-sponsors, Trent Development and Hatteras Sky. The to-be-built 274-unit multifamily property is located at the corner of 12th Ave South and East Yesler Way, in Seattle, Washington. 

“It was important that whoever participated as a JV partner had a strong track record of funding opportunity zone developments and had ample experience in multifamily construction and ownership. We were able to find that and more with Bridge Investment Group. We are excited to watch construction begin on this gateway building to Yesler Terrace’s vibrant community,” said Leibsohn.
