Transaction Description:

George Smith Partners secured a $10,200,000 cash-out refinance of a 1920s-mixed-use brick building located in Los Angeles. In a growing movement to gentrify the area, this Property features both ground floor retail, and multifamily living. The cash-out refinance allowed our Sponsor to recapture the investment they made in upgrading and repositioning the Property. It is challenging for lenders to finance historic brick buildings and they have trouble getting their arms around mixed-use properties because of the potential risk they pose. GSP offered comfort to the Capital Provider by showing the significant improvements the Sponsor made to the Property, quantifying how retail will enhance the Property value as well as the benefits of being fully leased.
