Multifamily Housing Development

FaegreBD has extensive experience solving clients' land use, financing, development, leasing and subdivision needs. Our attorneys facilitate multifamily and mixed-use housing development from start to finish: from formation of various organizational and investment structures — including REITs, investment funds, joint ventures and private equity funds — to identifying the right combination of federal, state, local, tax increment, tax abatement and conventional financing.

We have experience working with a wide range of low-income housing tax credit transactions (LIHTC) and HUD programs, including:

  • Section 8
  • HUD-insured loans
  • Section 202
  • Section 236
  • Flex Sub Loans

From reviewing financing documents, through drafting architecture, engineering and construction agreements, to first operation of the facility, Faegre Baker Daniels provides sound advice and dedicated service to empower projects to succeed.

We have addressed disputes in all forums, both formal and alternative.
