Loudoun Station, located in Ashburn, Va. on Metro's Silver Line, includes more than 1 million square feet of Class A mixed-use development with another 1.5 million square feet planned for future delivery. Loudoun Station Phase II is composed of the BLVD Gramercy East and BLVD Flats apartment buildings, as well as ground-floor retail and structured parking. As the only Metro-connected development in Loudoun County, Va., Loudoun Station represents the area's transformation into a transit-connected community with direct connectivity to Dulles International Airport and downtown Washington, D.C.

Patrick McGlohn, Miles Drinkwalter, and Joyce Connolly led the refinancing effort from the Berkadia side.

"We appreciate the trust Comstock placed in our team to execute during a very volatile time in the market," said Mr. McGlohn. "We were able to lock in the interest rate before the run-up in yields, which will result in substantial interest savings over the life of the loan. We enjoyed working with Comstock on this transaction and wish them continued success."

"Our multi-family projects in Loudoun Station continue to perform incredibly well in the current environment, as proven by this construction take-out loan that exceeded our expectations on both rate and total proceeds," said Christopher Guthrie, Comstock's Chief Financial Officer. "We are very pleased with the execution of this transaction and appreciate the support from the strong team at Berkadia."
