6b.   PILOT Agreement – Sojourn Nolensville Apartments.        

Sojourn Nolensville Apartments, LP has applied for a PILOT to construct a 170-unit affordable housing complex at 4608 and 4612 Nolensville Pike.  Sojourn Nolensville Apartments, LP has received an allocation of 4% Low Income Housing Tax Credits (LIHTCs) from the Tennessee Housing Development Agency (THDA).  The development will contain 170 residential units consisting of 38 two-bedroom units, 90 three-bedroom units, and 42 four-bedroom units.  100% of the units will be subject to income and rent restrictions, the average income restriction will be no greater than 60% of area median income (AMI). 

Staff is recommending approval of a PILOT that would have an initial payment of $30,600 in lieu of property taxes after the project is placed in service.  The PILOT would increase by 3% annually over the 10-year life of the agreement.  This PILOT payment was based on review of the site’s projected base year taxes, development budget, operating pro forma, and debt obligations.  MDHA estimates this to be a tax abatement of approximately $391,803 for the first year the property is placed in service.  This would leave MDHA’s annual abatement capacity at $474,114.
