PNC Multifamily Capital Closes $140 Million Tax Credit Equity Fund for Low- and Moderate-Income Housing in 13 States
-- Largest national fund syndication ever sponsored by PNC --

PNC MultiFamily Capital, a division of PNC Real Estate Finance, has announced the successful completion of Columbia Housing/PNC Institutional Fund XIX (CIF XIX), a $140 million investment limited partnership.

The $140 million fund is comprised of 25 separate transactions involving the construction of multifamily housing properties that target low- and moderate-income families and seniors. The properties are located in 13 states, totaling 2,922 apartment units, including:

   State       Properties Units
   California      3       262
   Florida         5       848
   Georgia         1       284
   Indiana         2       152
   Louisiana       2       120
   Michigan        1       89
   North Carolina  1       91
   New Jersey      2       177
   Oregon          1       97
   Pennsylvania    2       180
   Tennessee       2       264
   Texas           2       312
   Washington      1       46

Eight institutional investors invested between $5 million to $70 million to acquire limited partnership interests in the fund. Investors will derive a return based primarily on the receipt of Low Income Housing Tax Credits and passive losses from real estate depreciation.

"This tax credit equity fund attracted both new as well as repeat investors to PNC, and the result was a larger fund than originally planned," said Todd Crow, executive vice president in the Louisville, Ky., office of PNC MultiFamily Capital. "This is really a win-win situation. Our investors clearly see this PNC MultiFamily Capital fund as an attractive investment. But, the real beneficiaries are the families and seniors that will ultimately reside in these new and rehabilitated multifamily properties."

CIF XIX is the largest fund ever syndicated nationally by PNC MultiFamily Capital and one of the largest completed within the industry.
