Federal Capital Partners® (FCP) has announced a $20 million mezzanine loan to finance The Dalian on Fairmount, a 293-unit trophy multifamily building breaking ground this fall in Philadelphia’s prestigious Museum District. The 9-story property will be built above the future Whole Foods at Rodin Square. Development and construction will be led by owner Dalian Development. Property Capital LLC arranged the financing.

Corwin adds, “Structured and flexible, FCP’s mezzanine financing completes the capital stack on this complex mixed use project.” Since 2009, FCP has provided $190 million of structured debt investments in both the residential and commercial sectors.

Within Center City Philadelphia, The Dalian on Fairmount will be walking distance to the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Barnes Foundation, the Free Library of Philadelphia and Fairmont Park and will have direct access onto Kelly Drive.
