(Nasdaq: HCDI, HCDIP, HCDIW, HCDIZ) (“Harbor,” “Harbor Custom Homes®,” or the “Company”), an innovative and market leading real estate company involved in all aspects of the land development cycle, today announced that it has closed a $19,129,000 construction loan with Broadmark Realty Capital for the 126 unit first phase of Harbor’s 228 unit Olympic Sunset View Apartment project in Belfair, Washington.
Located in North Mason County, Washington the 228-unit garden style apartment complex currently under construction, is conveniently situated adjacent to highway SR 3 and provides views of Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains. Belfair is approximately a 15-minute drive to downtown Bremerton, the Seattle ferry, and the Kitsap Naval Base, a major contributor to a robust defense economy with approximately 40,000 employees tied to the military and defense industry in the area. Residents of the Olympic Sunset View Apartments will enjoy easy access to outdoor recreation highlighted by Belfair State Park a convenient 5-minute drive from the project offering year-round camping on 3,720 feet of saltwater shoreline at the southern end of Hood Canal https://parks.state.wa.us/475/Belfair.
“Closing of this multi-family construction loan is a major milestone for Harbor. It is our largest apartment project to date and will set the bar for several other planned multi-family projects in our inventory that are under construction or in the permitting phase. We anticipate that the sale of multi-family properties will be a major source of revenue for the company over the next several years and are estimating that if existing market conditions remain constant the initial 126-unit first phase of the Olympic Sunset View project alone will generate approximately $37 million in revenue.” stated Sterling Griffin, President and Chief Executive Officer of Harbor Custom Homes.
