Refinance for a 2,738 SF Retail Building; Echo Park, CA

Rate: 7.75%
Term: 6 Months
LTV: 70%

Transaction Description:

George Smith Partners successfully advised on the refinance of a 2,738 SF high-street retail building located in Los Angeles, CA. The senior loan proceeds totaled $2,500,000 of non-recourse financing, which is approximately 70% loan-to-value. Due to the strategic advising of GSP, the Sponsor was able to obtain a fixed rate loan despite the building being 100% vacant.

The Sponsor achieved a fully executed lease from a cannabis use tenant however, the prior mortgage did not permit cannabis use. GSP identified a cannabis-friendly lender that could close in accordance with the Sponsor’s business plan. Additionally, the Property was encumbered by a loan that included neighboring parcels as collateral. The new loan allowed the Sponsor to release the property from the prior mortgage and capitalize on the newly signed lease.
