HFF announces financing for Apollo on H Street in Washington, D.C.

Apollo on H Street, Mixed-Use Complex, Washington, DC
Jamie Leachman

WASHINGTON, D.C.– Holliday Fenoglio Fowler, L.P. (HFF) announces the permanent financing for Apollo on H Street, a best-in-class, pre-stabilized residential, retail and office mixed-use property in Washington, D.C.’s H Street Corridor.

The HFF team worked on behalf of the borrower, a partnership between Insight Property Group and institutional investors advised by J.P. Morgan Asset Management, to secure the fixed-rate loan through TH Real Estate, an affiliate of Nuveen (the investment management arm of TIAA). 

 HFF previously arranged construction financing and joint venture equity for the partnership in 2014 while the property was in development. 

Apollo on H Street is in Washington, D.C.’s historic H Street Corridor at 600 H Street NE. With a WalkScore® of 97, the property is near numerous lifestyle and employment amenities and is five blocks from Union Station, which serves as the main rail transportation artery into and around the D.C. metro. 

Nicole Brickhouse
Completed in 2017, Apollo on H Street encompasses 431 apartments with luxury finishes, including Italian cabinetry, quartz countertops, stainless appliances and wood floors throughout.

The apartments were 70 percent leased at the onset of the marketing process. In addition, the property features 57,000 square feet of fully leased retail space anchored by a 40,000-square-foot Whole Foods and a 32,000-square-foot office component occupied by WeWork.

Apollo on H Street also has 60,000 square feet of indoor/outdoor amenity space, including a public lobby and leasing lounge connected to the Wydown Café; world-class art collection curated by Long View Gallery and Art Enables;

Jennifer Keller
Also, penthouse with demonstration kitchen, indoor fireplace and table games; conservatory event space with access to the roof terrace; east rooftop lounge with grilling kitchens, a movie projector and expansive landscaping; 

Also, west rooftop lounge with outdoor living room, grilling kitchen, two-tiered swimming pool and outdoor fireplace; indoor dog wash and outdoor dog run; gym with private studio, boxing area and Peloton bikes; and communal gardens.

The HFF debt placement team representing the borrower included Jamie Leachman, Nicole Brickhouse and Jennifer Keller.

Sarah Davidson
“We are seeing more and more available capital right now for both pre-stabilized and recently stabilized assets,” Leachman said.  “Given the quality, location and sponsorship, Apollo on H Street created significant interest from the lending community, providing the partnership multiple options from which to choose.”

“HFF was fortunate to have been involved in the permanent financing of the Apollo,” Brickhouse added.  “Insight Property Group and J.P. Morgan have created a one-of-a-kind asset. 

" Due to the extremely competitive environment for best-in-class, pre-stabilized assets, multiple lenders were able to get creative underwriting the asset as if it was stabilized.  TH Real Estate was fantastic to work with and ultimately provided the borrower with the most long-term flexibility.”

Richard Hausler
Insight Property Group develops, acquires and repositions well-located multifamily and mixed-use properties in the greater Washington, D.C. area.  Insight’s two principals and senior leadership team members are industry veterans with a significant track record of success.

The co-founders, Richard Hausler and Michael Blum, along with their partners, Trent Smith, Bill Goodman, Sarah Davidson and Maury Stern, have decades of experience in the greater D.C. real estate market.  Combined, they have acquired and developed more than 40,000 apartments and condominiums, including high-end market-rate and affordable units.
