H.I.G. Realty Credit Partners Originates $67 Million Loan Secured by a 314-Unit Multifamily Property in Charlotte, NC

NEW YORK – November 14, 2022 – H.I.G. Capital (“H.I.G.”), a leading global alternative investment firm with $52 billion of equity capital under management, is pleased to announce that its affiliate, H.I.G. Realty Credit Partners, has originated a loan totaling $67 million secured by a 314-unit multifamily property in Charlotte, North Carolina.

The loan was made to Panorama Holdings (“Panorama”), an experienced real estate owner and developer based in Charlotte, who developed the property and completed lease-up in late 2021. The property directly serves the high growth employment area of the University City submarket, and benefits from its immediate proximity to the Lynx Blue Line which connects it to the greater Charlotte area.
