Mixed use gets a break. In September, “FHA loosened a restriction that forbade government-backed loans from supporting condominium projects that contained more than 25 percent commercial space. New rules will allow credit to flow to projects with up to 35 percent commercial space — or 50 percent in certain cases where the developer applies for an exemption.” —Angie Schmitt, DC Streetsblog. http://bit.ly/RMQCtV
