More details >

Summary:

The refinance of the 456,000 SQ Loop office building, required creativity and significant structuring to accommodate a partner buyout, and a need for a partial release of collateral should the anchor tenant, Club Quarters, wish to exercise an existing purchase option. Aries was able to get lenders comfortable with the loan amount from both a square footage and a per hotel room basis, and provided client, Crown Real Estate and Development with multiple loan solutions including a CMBS loan, a hybrid CMBS/Bridge loan, and a floating rate loan. Ultimately the client selected a Wells Fargo-funded $45.3 million first mortgage floating rate loan, and swapped out $27 million into a five-year fixed rate. The remaining balance of the loan is pre-payable without penalty in the event the hotel exercises its purchase option.  The blended rate was priced at 4.19%.

Financing Amount:

Summary:

Aries Capital arranged an $8.4 million, non-recourse bridge loan for a 180-bed skilled-nursing facility in eastern Oklahoma. The two-year, interest only loan, enabled the borrower to close out an existing HUD loan and buy out the other partners in the business.

The product type is not favored by traditional capital markets, and the borrower had been seeking financing on his own for over a year when he turned to Aries Capital for assistance. Using our network of relationships with diverse capital sources, Aries was able to secure the financing through a private lender with whom we have a longstanding relationship.
