Holliday Fenoglio Fowler, L.P. (HFF) announces $156.2 million in financing for Modera Avenir Place, a best-in-class residential property in Vienna, Virginia.

The HFF team worked exclusively on behalf of the borrower, a joint venture between Mill Creek Residential Trust LLC and institutional investors advised by J.P. Morgan Asset Management, to secure the floating-rate loan with MetLife Investment Management. Loan proceeds were used to retire existing construction financing.

Modera Avenir Place is situated at the intersection of Prosperity Avenue and Gallows Road adjacent to the Shops at Avenir Place and Interstate 66. The transit-oriented community is adjacent to the Dunn Loring-Merrifield Metrorail station (Orange Line) and numerous major thoroughfares that provide accessibility to the entire D.C. metropolitan area. Modera Avenir Place, a grocery-anchored mixed-use development, was completed in two phases in 2013 and 2015. The community comprises 628 residential apartment homes averaging 882 square feet, 578 of which are market-rate units. The studio, one- and two-bedroom floor plans include state-of-the-art features such as gourmet-inspired kitchens with stainless steel appliances and quartz countertops, central heat and air conditioning, high-end light fixtures, hardwood-style flooring and abundant storage. Community amenities include two swimming pools with sun decks, grilling stations, billiards and gaming consoles, and business centers with cyber cafes. The property includes a ground-floor Harris Teeter, Inova Care Center and Thai by Thai restaurant.

The HFF team representing the borrower included Nicole Brickhouse, Jamie Leachman, Jennifer Keller, Mike Tepedino, Sue Carras, Walter Coker and Brian Crivella.
