BankUnited (NYSE: BKU) today announced it provided more than $145 million in loans for Maitland-based CED Companies, which specializes in building affordable multifamily communities, and its affiliate Concord Management Limited, a national leader in property management of affordable multifamily rental housing communities.

BankUnited’s Patrick Fitzgerald, vice president of commercial real estate in Orlando, worked with CED Companies CEO Alan Ginsburg and Executive Vice President Brian Spear to provide refinancing for 10 multifamily rental properties comprising more than 3,000 units, as well as for the Maitland headquarters of Concord Management Limited. The multifamily properties are located in Orlando, Oviedo, Kissimmee, Sanford and Daytona Beach. Many of the loans qualify for CRA credit based on the income- and rent-restricted nature of the properties.
