Monarch Private Capital Finances Affordable Family Housing in Oklahoma

New Rising Sun Apartments will create quality affordable housing for families in Oklahoma City

ATLANTA, Aug. 23, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Monarch Private Capital, a nationally recognized impact investment firm that develops, finances, and manages a diversified portfolio of projects generating both federal and state tax credits, is pleased to announce the financial closing of low-income housing tax credit (LIHTC) equity for the new construction of a $36 million affordable housing development called Rising Sun Apartments in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

The Rising Sun Apartments are located at 1315 South MacArthur Boulevard and comprises 224 permanent affordable housing units. Monarch partnered with DLP Development, LLC to develop this project, which is expected to be completed in July 2024. Fifty percent of the construction for Rising Sun will be produced in a new modular housing facility based in Oklahoma City called The House Factory. Pre-constructed second-floor modules will be craned into place reducing the overall build time of the development by 20%.

By effectively addressing Colorado’s pressing issue of affordable housing, the Rising Sun Apartments not only provide a solution for the community’s housing needs but also offer a significant economic boost to the local economy. Based on estimations from the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) report, the project is expected to create over 300 jobs and generate over $23 million in local income in the first year alone. 

"We are really excited to partner with Monarch on our Rising Sun development. Not only is their capital making this deal possible, but their extensive expertise in the affordable housing industry is helping us shape past and future developments we have in Oklahoma," stated Lance Windel, CEO of DLP Development, LLC.

“Increased access to affordable housing is crucial for creating a thriving community and improving the quality of life for local residents,” said Brent Barringer, Partner, Managing Director of LIHTC. “We’re thrilled to partner with DLP Development on high-quality affordable homes that will have a lasting, positive impact on Oklahoma City.”
