IRVINE, Calif., — Talonvest Capital, Inc., a boutique self storage and commercial real estate mortgage brokerage firm, negotiated a $48.8 million refinance bridge loan secured by three Class A, state-of-the-art self storage facilities located in the New York Metropolitan Area on behalf of a partnership between Clark Investment Group and GoodFriend Management. The financing was secured by newer facilities totaling 175,531 net rentable square feet located in the Bronx, New Rochelle, and Mount Vernon, NY. All the facilities benefit from high visibility locations and feature the most modern, user-friendly designs in their market.
The cash out, non-recourse, 3-year, interest only loans with extension options are priced at a competitive spread over LIBOR and feature interest rate step-downs based on achieving performance hurdles at the properties. The loan was funded by a full service commercial real estate lender and included an interest/operating reserve, individual release provisions, and prepayment flexibility. Bob Baker, President of Clark Investment Group commented, “This bridge loan returned equity, shifted us to non-recourse, and provided us with ample time to achieve economic stabilization. Talonvest’s knowledge and capital relationships delivered valuable results to us once again.” The Talonvest team members representing the partnership in this assignment included Kim Leslie Bishop, Jim Davies, Tom Sherlock, and Eric Snyder.
