Monarch Private Capital (MPC), a nationally recognized tax-advantaged investment firm that develops, finances, and manages a diversified portfolio of projects that generate federal and state tax credits, is pleased to announce the financial closing of low-income housing tax credit equity (LIHTC) for a 28 million-dollar mixed-use residential development called Badger State Lofts. MPC has partnered with Indiana-based KCG Companies to develop the project, which expects to be placed in service in the spring of 2020.

Badger State Lofts is the conversion of a historic tannery complex into a mixed-use and mixed-income residential community in downtown Sheboygan, Wisconsin. Once completed, the project will provide 149 apartment units, interior garage and surface parking, 9,000 square feet of commercial space and expansive community and amenity areas. The units will have a “loft” style aesthetic in an effort to maintain the historic feel of the building’s previous uses throughout its 130-year history.

The project is a focal point in the effort to revitalize the southern portion of downtown Sheboygan and will serve as the foundation for future development and implementation of the master plan for Sheboygan Economic Development Corporation’s thriving live-work-play Innovation District.

“Our investment in Badger State Lofts is another illustration of the benefits of the LIHTC program,” said Brent Barringer, Managing Director of LIHTC for MPC. “We appreciate the collaboration KCG Companies, and in particular, the leadership of Matthew Gilhooly for delivering superior affordable housing that will positively impact the Sheboygan community.”

“KCG was formed with a single purpose,” said KCG’s President RJ Pasquesi, “to build vibrant communities that offer all residents an enhanced quality of life and a proud place to call home. We strive to advance and redefine the standards for superior-quality sustainable communities and feel that Badger State Lofts has more than accomplished this goal. As the Innovation District grows, KCG will take pride knowing that this development is acting as a foundational catalyst to facilitate innovation, entrepreneurship, employment and education in the community.
