U.S. Bank Closes on $55.1 Million in Financing for Two Urban Senior Living Developments

  U.S. Bank Closes on $55.1 Million in Financing for Two Urban Senior Living

  Projects will transform two vacant lots into 165 affordable senior housing

Business Wire

LOS ANGELES -- June 7, 2013

U.S. Bank is providing more than $55.1 million in financing to help Retirement
Housing Foundation (RHF) develop two senior affordable housing complexes, both
breaking ground this month in Los Angeles neighborhoods. Officials will break
ground on the two developments June 7 and June 14. U.S. Bank will present a
$30,000 check to the organization at the June 14 event.

“U.S. Bank is pleased to partner with Retirement Housing Foundation, a
highly-respected developer in California and across the country,” said Sean
Foley, president of U.S. Bank in Southern California. “We are committed to
providing funding for affordable housing in Southern California, and senior
living is an important and necessary component to these communities.”

U.S. Bank’s commitment to the projects includes $24.9 million in construction
debt and more than $30.2 million of Low-Income Housing Tax Credit equity
through its tax credit investment subsidiary, U.S. Bancorp Community
Development Corporation.

The $30,000 donation that will be presented to RHF is from the U.S. Bank
Foundation for support of its operations. U.S. Bank has given RHF more than
$160,000 in the last 10 years, just part of an extensive relationship that the
bank has with the organization. Tiena Johnson-Hall, vice president of
community lending for U.S. Bank in California, serves on the Angelus Plaza
Committee for RHF, and recently worked with her bank partners to implement new
financial tools that save RHF a substantial amount of money by leveraging the
size of their organization to maximize benefits received from utilities and
vendors that serve their properties. U.S. Bank also just approved $1 million
loan for working capital.

Broadwood Terrace, in South Los Angeles, and Las Alturas, in East Los Angeles,
will provide a combined 165 units of affordable housing for eligible seniors.
The communities have 153 units of HUD 202 Section 8 rental subsidies for those
eligible seniors 62 years and older. The remaining 12 units will have
affordable rents for eligible seniors 55 years and older. The properties,
which are both LEED-certified, will be completed in late summer/early fall

“RHF is grateful for U.S. Bank’s partnership in these new communities as we
seek to address the nation’s critical need for more affordable housing,” said
Rev. Laverne Joseph, D.D., president of Retirement Housing Foundation.

Broadwood Terrace, located at 5001-5025 South Main Street in South Los
Angeles, will consist of 88 one and two-bedroom units in a five-story
building. The units meet accessibility requirements and will be within a
quarter-mile of public transportation, a grocery store, a pharmacy, Hubert H.
Humphrey Comprehensive Health Center, Junipero Branch Library and South Park
Recreation Center. The project’s groundbreaking celebration will take place on
June 7 at 1:30 p.m.

Las Alturas, located at 3545 East Whittier Blvd. in the Boyle Heights
neighborhood, will consist of 77 one-bedroom units in a five-story building.
Like Broadwood Terrace, the units will meet accessibility requirements and the
complex is within close proximity of services and amenities such as public
transportation, a grocery store and Robert L. Stevenson Library. The project’s
groundbreaking celebration will take place on June 14 at 1:30 p.m. A U.S. Bank
representative will present RHF with check for $30,000 during festivities.
