Kennedy Wilson And Partners Close $80M Japanese Multifamily Financing At 1.61% Interest Rate, Fixed For Five Years

International real estate investment and services firm Kennedy Wilson (NYSE: KW) today announced that KW Residential, LLC, the company’s unconsolidated Japanese venture, refinanced part of its multifamily portfolio in the amount of $80 million at a 1.61% interest rate, fixed for five years. Mitsubishi UFJ provided the financing.

“We were able to lock in favorable rates on the portfolio with significant positive leverage,” said Matt Windisch, executive vice president of Kennedy Wilson. “This financing helps to create substantial current cash flow on the portfolio, which is presently running at 97% occupancy.”

Within the last 18 months, KW Residential, LLC completed new loans totaling $327 million at an average fixed interest rate of 2.01% and a weighted average maturity of June 2016. All of the portfolio loans are held by Japanese megabanks including Mitsubishi UFJ, SMBC, and Mizuho Bank.

Kennedy Wilson has been active in Japanese real estate since 1992, and in 2002, one of the company’s former subsidiaries became one of the first U.S. real estate companies to go public in Japan.
