Transaction Description:

George Smith Partners successfully arranged $1,500,000 of rate and term refinancing for a multi-tenant office building in Santa Monica, CA. The Property was constructed in 1975, and it has been recently renovated with 6,256 sf net rentable area. The Property is conveniently located near Santa Monica College, Downtown Santa Monica, and it is less than two miles away from Santa Monica State Beach. Santa Monica has been and still is one of the most highly sought-after office locations in the Los Angeles area by tenants and investors. The submarket has very significant supply constraints, though rental rates are lagging the metro average. The purpose of the refinance is to pay off the existing debt and take advantage of the low interest rate environment.

The Sponsor is self-managing the Property. They renovated the units recently and brought the rents up to market rate. The Building was 100% occupied by local and non-credit tenants at closing. All of the leases will roll within the first three years of the loan term.

GSP sourced a lender who is willing to offer a 7-year permanent loan term, without holding back Tenant Improvement and Leasing Commissions reserves. The loan is sized to 31%LTV, it has a fixed coupon of 3.46% with a 25-year amortization schedule.
