Housing Trust Group and Mount Hermon African Methodist Episcopal Church Inc. have secured financing to construct a new affordable housing community, Mount Hermon Apartments, located at 750 Northwest 4th Street in the Dorsey Riverbend neighborhood of Fort Lauderdale. Designed by Miami-based REPRTWÄR with interiors by B. Pila Design, the 7-story development will offer units reserved for income-qualifying seniors aged 62 and above whose income falls at or below 25 and 60 percent of the area median income (AMI) with rents ranging from $425 to $1,225 per month. HTG Gomez Construction is the general contractor, and Thomas Engineering is the civil engineer and landscape architect. The project is expected to be completed in late 2024.

Totaling $43.5 million, funding sources for Mount Hermon Apartments include $32.6 million in 9% Low-Income Housing Tax Credit equity syndicated through Raymond James, a $33 million construction loan from TD Bank, a $7.536 million permanent loan from Berkadia and Freddie Mac, and a $640,000 loan from the City of Fort Lauderdale.

“The need for affordable housing in Broward County has become a critical issue,” said Matthew A. Rieger, President and CEO of HTG. “We are particularly grateful to be building Mount Hermon Apartments with the help of our committed partner, Rev. Dr. Henry E. Green Jr. and the Mount Hermon AME Church. As a pillar in the community, Rev. Green’s participation and support is instrumental to the long-term success of this development and helping address the demand for affordable housing options for the seniors of Broward County.”
