The California Statewide Communities Development Authority (CSCDA) is pleased to announce the issuance of $74,000,000 in tax-exempt and taxable multi-family affordable housing bonds for Crossings at Palm Desert Apartments in Palm Desert, California.
About Crossings at Palm Desert Apartments:
Crossings at Palm Desert Apartments (the “Project”) is the new construction of 176 affordable housing units by Urban Housing Communities (UHC). The benefits of the Project for the City of Palm Desert include the following:
- 80% of the affordable rental housing units will be rent restricted for extremely low-income and very low-income tenants.
- The Project consists of one-bedroom, two-bedroom, and three-bedroom units, as well as two manager’s units.
- The affordable units will be restricted to households earning less than 30% and 60% of the area median income.
About the Financing:
CSCDA and UHC partnered with Citibank and Orrick Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP to provide $74,000,000 in multi-family affordable housing bonds for the Project. The financing for the Project requires the affordability of units for extremely low-income and very low-income tenants to be maintained for 55 years.
