LAGUNA BEACH, Calif., Sept. 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Parse Capital, LLC announces the closing of an $8.9 million mezzanine loan to finance the development of a class "A" apartment community in Los Angeles County. Upon completion in the fall of 2014, the LEED silver, transit-oriented project will be comprised of 349 rental units housed in two, four-story buildings offering a range of living options and resort style amenities.
"Our ability to offer borrowers flexibility and certainty of close is key in helping our clients finance multifamily development projects successfully and expeditiously," said William Trefethen, Managing Partner of Parse Capital.
