George Smith Partners successfully arranged $53,710,000 in bridge financing for a six-property portfolio comprising three conventional multifamily properties and three co-living properties totaling 113 units (278 beds) in Los Angeles. All six of the properties are in various stages of lease-up. The non-recourse bridge financing refinanced existing construction debt from four unrelated lenders, provided a significant cash out to the Sponsor and allows more time for continued rent recovery in Los Angeles, in anticipation of permanent long-term financing.
The Properties are in highly dense submarkets with significant levels of rentership, with vacancies approaching 3%. The housing crisis in Los Angeles has yielded significant pent-up demand for attainable housing options. The best-in-class Sponsor recognized the substantial value of the high quality multifamily and co-living properties in strong growth submarkets where demand has consistently outweighed supply, especially for new product. GSP was able to identify a lender who was able to get comfortable with the business plan due the Sponsors familiarity with the markets and demonstrated success with both conventional and co-living properties.
