Arbor Funds $13.4M Fannie Mae DUS® Green Rewards Loan in Las Vegas, NV

UNIONDALE, NY (February 5, 2020) – Arbor Realty Trust, Inc. (NYSE:ABR), a leading multifamily and commercial mortgage lender, recently funded a Fannie Mae DUS® Green Rewards acquisition loan in Las Vegas, NV. The mid-rise, multifamily property received $13.4M in financing with a 10-year fixed-rate and four months of interest only payments.

Built in 2008, Echelon at Centennial Hills offers one, two, three- and four-bedroom units, with washers and dryers, walk-in closets, vaulted ceilings, granite countertops, and stainless steel appliances. The complex has a resort-style pool and spa, cabanas, sun deck, clubhouse and fitness center. It is in close proximity to local parks, restaurants and entertainment.
