Portfolio Highlights: Community Lending

Expanding access to flexible capital for real estate development.

We believe everyone should have an opportunity to live in a healthy community with a safe place to call home, where they can work, go to school and know their neighbors. Since 1990, we’ve supported the creation of mixed-use, vibrant neighborhoods across the country by financing a broad spectrum of community development needs, ranging from multi-family and senior rental to special-needs housing and commercial development projects.

Stout Street Health Center and Renaissance Stout Street Lofts
Denver, Colorado

U.S. Bank, a longtime partner of the Colorado Coalition for the Homeless, provided two separate financing packages for the $38 million development of the Stout Street Health Center and Renaissance Stout Street Lofts in downtown Denver. Combining construction and permanent loan with New Markets Tax Credit (NMTC) and Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) financing, we helped the Coalition build the state-of-the-art clinic, which cares for up to 18,000 homeless, veteran and uninsured patients. The package also financed the construction of affordable apartments for 78 formerly homeless households, providing a stable home environment and support services for vulnerable Denver individuals and families.

Located on a former parking lot in a redeveloping urban area, Celadon at 9th & Broadway includes 250 affordable rental apartments and provides its multigenerational population with services and ground-floor retail. Nonprofit developer BRIDGE Housing designed the high-rise with 25 units reserved for youth aging out of foster care and adults covered by the Mental Health Services Act. Another 63 apartments serve seniors under the Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly. Celadon is designed to LEED silver standards and has a green roof with drought-tolerant plants and a solar system built into the building’s façade—the tallest solar generation system of its kind in the nation.

Arcade Building
St. Louis, Missouri

Assembling a $77 million financing package for the redevelopment of the century-old Arcade Building required a dedicated, multidisciplinary team from U.S. Bank. We partnered with leading developer Dominium to pair construction and permanent debt and NMTC, LIHTC and Historic Tax Credit equity with capital from the City of St. Louis and other financers to renovate the 18-floor building in the heart of downtown St. Louis, which has been vacant for years. The 500,000-square-foot Arcade houses a local university’s classrooms and performance hall, an art gallery, 202 apartments for artists and low-income residents, 80 market-rate apartments and retail space.

Minneapolis, Minnesota

In the center of downtown Minneapolis, U.S. Bank blended construction loans and HTC equity with grants from the city to finance the restoration of the historic Plymouth Building. HRI Properties is reviving the 384,000-square-foot office building into a 290-room upscale, full-service hotel that will generate jobs and economic development for Minneapolis for years to come. Our relationship with HRI Properties and its affiliates spans numerous investments; most recently, the company leveraged our expertise in New Orleans to complete the new construction and substantial rehabilitation of a significant portion of the historic Iberville housing site and the redevelopment of a Hurricane Katrina-damaged office building into a mixed-use, mixed-income property.
