NEW YORK, Jan. 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Trevian Capital, a direct lender that provides flexible and reliable short-term bridge loans for commercial real estate opportunities nationwide, funded two first-mortgage bridge loans totaling $24,750,000. Both loans were made to institutional borrowers.
Washington, DC - $8,300,000: Closed in three weeks over Thanksgiving
Trevian Capital provided an $8,300,000 first mortgage bridge loan secured by a 150-room Comfort Inn and a 200-room Days Inn, both located in metropolitan Washington D.C. The proceeds from the first mortgage loan were used to recapitalize the properties and to cover a one-time shortfall in operating capital at the corporate entity level, which resulted from a failed organizational change. Trevian Capital was able to provide a timely and creative solution for a publicly traded REIT at a time when they needed it most.
Raleigh, NC - $16,450,000: Required creative structuring
Trevian Capital funded a $16,450,000 first mortgage bridge for the acquisition and upgrade of a 256,805 square foot shopping center in a prime retail corridor in Raleigh, NC. Additional proceeds were reserved to fund tenant improvements and leasing commissions for newly signed tenants. Trevian Capital was able to structure the loan in a manner that i) was sensitive to the Borrower's short-term financing requirement, ii) provided ample liquidity for repositioning the asset, and iii) rewarded asset-level and cash flow improvements. In addition, Trevian Capital structured around a partial collateral-release in exchange for the addition of new anchor tenants delivered upon closing.
Michael Hoffenberg, Founder and Managing Principal, made the announcement:
"These two transactions exemplify Trevian Capital's reputation as an institutional bridge lending platform catering to the middle market for time sensitive and situational deals nationwide. What is unique about these two deals is that both borrowers were institutional, requiring a lender who could navigate corporate systems and appease their governing bodies. In each case, Trevian was able to craft tailor-made solutions in a timely manner."
