NHP FOUNDATION-URBAN ATLANTIC FUND I is celebrating the acquisition of Alpha Towers, a 165-unit senior apartment community located in Toledo, Ohio, on August 15, 2014. The 9-story, mid-rise building, situated on 3 acres in downtown Toledo provides affordable housing for low- to moderate-income seniors. This is the fifth acquisition by the Fund.

The $50 million equity Fund, created to address the growing shortage of American affordable housing, brought together three national leaders in the development of affordable real estate: PNC Real Estate, Urban Atlantic, and The NHP Foundation. The Fund’s mission is to identify and preserve affordable housing developments that are both sound investments and important components of the social fabric in their broader communities.

Although the three Fund partners each have their own unique histories preserving and creating affordable multifamily housing, within the Fund their respective goals and business models perfectly align to meet the needs of the communities in which they are investing.

PNC REAL ESTATE is a leading provider of banking, financing and servicing solutions for commercial real estate clients across the country. Its comprehensive array of capabilities includes acquisition, construction and permanent financing for public and private developers and investors; agency financing for multifamily and seniors housing properties; and debt and equity capital for the affordable housing industry. PNC Real Estate is a leading provider of tax credit solutions for developers nationwide and it leverages its tax credit expertise by arranging broadly diversified LIHTC multi-investor funds as well as LIHTC proprietary funds to accredited institutional investors. PNC Real Estate is a member of The PNC Financial Services Group, Inc.
