SEATTLE (June 10, 2019) – 3650 REIT (“3650”), a balance-sheet lender focused on creating long-term relationships by originating, servicing and asset managing long- and short-term fixed-rate commercial real estate loans through maturity, has funded a $135 million 10-year, first-mortgage loan to Martin Selig Real Estate to refinance the Selig Office Portfolio, which comprises nearly 403,000 square feet and is located in Seattle, Washington.
The portfolio features three properties: 333 Elliott West; Fourth and Battery, located at 2401 4th Avenue; and Third and Battery, located at 2400 3rd Avenue. The latter two buildings are well-positioned in Seattle’s most densely populated neighborhood, Belltown, while 333 Elliott West resides just north on a conveniently situated stretch of waterfront. The new loan will provide Martin Selig Real Estate with additional capital to continue advancing development initiatives meeting the needs of residents in the thriving Seattle market.
“This loan represented the opportunity to solidify our relationship with a superior sponsor in Martin Selig Real Estate,” said Toby Cobb, Co-Founder and Managing Partner at 3650 REIT. “Ken Dickey and his 10-year, fixed-rate, balance-sheet origination team continue to serve up excellent lending opportunities for our investors. 3650 was able to quickly fund the project, contributing to serving the diverse needs of Seattle office tenants while facilitating the largest loan to date for our 10-year fixed-rate program.”
Martin Selig Real Estate Chief Operating Officer Pete Parker stated, “3650 REIT’s team of veteran real estate professionals is a pleasure to work with. They recognized the quality of the assets and the ongoing growth in the Seattle office market, and worked efficiently to provide a first-class financing product within our designated time frame. We are ecstatic with the result, and look forward to building upon our successful connection with 3650.”
The Selig Office Portfolio is situated in an ideal shopping and waterfront destination, providing office tenants with first-class amenities including easy highway access, local dining options, ample parking, and beautiful views of Elliott Bay. The Seattle office market has shown rental rate growth and lower vacancy in 2019, and is poised to continue providing tenants with an exceptional environment in which to conduct business.
