Assetz Capital supports development facility delivering a 169 unit PBSA scheme in Bradford.

The £2.99m facility will be used to extensively refurbish an existing building at Laisteridge Student Village, Bradford city centre, and will comprise 169 student rooms across 2 blocks.

According to the developer of Baseball Developments, advised by Auxilium Real Estate, the new project aims to help address the housing supply for both local and international students looking to study in the city.

Commenting on the deal completion, Ricky Humphreys, Relationship Director at Assetz Capital, said: “Bradford has a continuing undersupply of quality purpose-built accommodation and we are proud to play our part in supporting the repurposing of this building”. 

“The vision and spirit of the company to take a vacant property and assist the town by creating vital accommodation for its students is exactly the sort of proposal we seek to fund.”

Niall Brown, Co-founder of Auxilium, said “This was a difficult loan to secure and it required a skilled development lender like Assetz to understand a sub-market that isn’t particularly well known. Closing the debt is a great milestone for the borrower.”

Andrew Fraser, Chief Commercial Officer at Assetz Capital, added: “We are delighted to have supported Auxilium Real Estate and their customer on this key scheme. With PBSA alone, Assetz Capital has provided over £52.9m funding the construction of over 959 beds across the UK, and we continue to support the development of PBSA, BTR and traditional large-scale development.”

Auxilium Real Estate is a debt specialist who provides advice on structuring, sourcing and executing finance across the capital stack.
