RENSSELAER, N.Y. — Red Stone Tax-Exempt Funding LLC has provided $20.2 million in tax-exempt bonds for the rehabilitation of two affordable seniors housing communities in Rensselaer, located just across the Hudson River from downtown Albany.
The Section 8 properties, Van Rensselaer Heights and Renwyck Place, were originally constructed in 1980. Millennia Housing Development will perform the renovations on a budget exceeding $45,000 per unit.
An affiliate of Red Stone is the borrower, and will also use the funding to acquire the properties. Boston Capital Corp. purchased approximately $9.5 million in Low-Income Housing Tax-Credits (LIHTCs) in association with the properties.
