JLL Income Property Trust, an institutionally managed daily NAV REIT (NASDAQ: ZIPTAX; ZIPTMX; ZIPIAX; ZIPIMX) with approximately $7 billion in portfolio equity and debt investments, announced today that it originated a $48 million senior, secured floating rate first mortgage loan on an institutional-quality apartment community in Charleston, South Carolina. The loan has an initial three-year term, earns an interest rate of 3.85% above SOFR – the Secured Overnight Financing Rate – with a SOFR floor of 4%, and is projected to deliver a yield of approximately 8 to 9%.

With this most recent loan, JLL Income Property Trust has now surpassed $100 million in its senior secured floating rate first mortgage portfolio. In a market environment where traditional real estate debt sources are facing balance sheet and legacy portfolio challenges that have resulted in significantly curtailed lending, JLL Income Property Trust has capitalized by originating real estate loans that complement and further diversify its core, multi-sector property portfolio while also potentially enhancing investment performance.

“With continued disruption in the traditional real estate lending markets, we see tremendous opportunities to make accretive loans on attractive properties that add value to our diversified real estate portfolio,” said Allan Swaringen, President, and CEO of JLL Income Property Trust. “This Charleston investment is expected to provide JLL Income Property Trust with durable cash flows, downside protection through a senior position to the equity investment in the property, and added diversification to our portfolio of core equity and debt investments.”

Swaringen continued, “This investment brings our senior secured first mortgage loan portfolio to more than $100 million. Over time we intend to invest a meaningful allocation toward this private debt sector to capitalize on this higher interest rate environment to the benefit of our stockholders.”

The property is a 358-unit apartment community spread across 13 three-story residential buildings. The property is located in North Charleston, two miles from Charleston International Airport and seven miles from United States Joint Airforce Charleston, the largest employer in the region. Ongoing development in the market includes a $1 billion medical campus for Roper St. Francis Healthcare located one mile west of the property that is expected to bring more than 2,000 jobs to the area. Other major employers in the area include Boeing, the Medical University of South Carolina, Trident Health System and the Charleston County School District, among others.
