George Smith Partners arranged a $7,000,000 ($901/sf) cash-out, non-recourse, first mortgage from a REIT to refinance a single-tenant, owner-user office property in Venice Beach, California. The Lender was comfortable with providing the cash-out financing, although the single tenant was in bankruptcy protection due to the property’s irreplaceable location which is blocks from the ocean in Venice Beach. The financing provides 12 months of bridge term while the Tenant works through bankruptcy proceedings. Although the loan is non-recourse, the Lender did not require an appraisal or other third-party reports. Sized to 60% of the Lender’s underwritten value, the loan priced at 6.90% fixed for the 12-month loan duration.
