MidHudson Launched; Alternative for Reserve Requirements in HUD-Financed Projects

Joe Carroll Pref

Middleburg, a Vienna, Virginia-based real estate investment, development and management firm, today announced the formation of MidHudson LLC, a company that will offer a product to developers using HUD financing that will reduce the amount of equity required for a project and, as a result, increase equity returns. Joseph Carroll, formerly of Barclays Capital, will lead the new company.

Middleburg Managing Partner, Chris Finlay, noted, “MidHudson will provide a quality solution to address cumbersome reserves for HUD-financed housing developments that simply hasn’t existed before. We have been in the position that other HUD developers are in and saw this as an opportunity to streamline the process.” Mr. Finlay continued, “We are privileged to have Joe Carroll joining us to lead this important new venture. His experience and leadership skills
will ensure the success of MidHudson.”

MidHudson will initially work with HUD lenders to educate them about how its product works to reduce equity requirements and increase equity returns. The MidHudson product will be available to both developers currently in the HUD review process and those with recently closed transactions.  

“The HUD required reserves can be more than 35% of the total equity requirement for HUD financed development projects,” Joseph Carroll stated. “Our product is a highly cost effective and efficient way to eliminate the dilutive effect of HUD reserves and maximize a project’s financial performance.”  

Mr. Carroll joined MidHudson from Barclays Capital. He had several roles at Barclays, including the management of a team that developed and placed bespoke structured credit products. Prior to Barclays, Mr. Carroll played a significant role in the development of the structured credit business at Deutsche Bank and Brightwater Capital Management. He began his finance career at Bankers Trust in 1996. Mr. Carroll is a graduate of the University of Notre Dame and the University of Michigan Law School.
