The transaction involved the issuance of tax-exempt bonds by the City of Brooklyn Park as well as subordinate loans from Minnesota Housing Finance Agency, the City of Brooklyn Park, and Hennepin County. The tax-exempt bonds were underwritten by Dougherty & Company LLC, an affiliate of Dougherty Mortgage LLC. The 40-year term, 40-year amortization loan was arranged for borrower Amorce I Limited Partnership by Dougherty’s Minneapolis office.
