Transaction Description:

George Smith Partners arranged $5,340,000 in a pre-entitlement land development loan for a proposed 226-unit affordable housing project in California. The 60% loan to acquisition is priced at 4.50% over LIBOR (with a 5.50% floor) interest only. The Sponsor is addressing a major need for affordable housing in the state. GSP secured a unique capital source to arrange favorable and flexible capital that met with the Sponsor’s timeline. The interest-only land loan was priced at 5.50%, with an 18-month term and one 6-month extension option. There is additional flexibility with the loan structure having no prepayment penalty. Despite dealing with a strict closing deadline on the purchase, GSP was able to identify a lender who could execute on terms and close within the purchase agreement.
