Gemdale Secures $113MM Construction Financing for Seattle Development

Gemdale Seattle AIG Cushman & Wakefield 222 Dexter Avenue North

SEATTLE, Wash., July 30, 2021 – Cushman & Wakefield announced today that the real estate services firm served as the exclusive advisor to Gemdale USA Corporation in the procurement of $113,000,000 of construction financing for Skyglass Tower, a 29-story multifamily development located at 222 Dexter Avenue North in Seattle. The loan was provided by AIG.

A Cushman & Wakefield Equity, Debt & Structured Finance team of Dave Karson, Chris Moyer and Keith Padien represented the borrower.

“Seattle is benefiting greatly from regional job creation and South Lake Union is still a prime location for new developments,” said Karson. “Strong developers like Gemdale are getting great attention from debt and equity investors interested in high quality projects.”

Featuring 338 multifamily units, Skyglass Tower is a unique multifamily development in one of the most dynamic markets in the country. Featuring unobstructed water views, the project will include 2,260 square feet of ground floor retail and an expansive amenity package upon completion, which is slated for October 2023.

“Gemdale chose a construction perm loan to lock in today’s still historically low rates,” added Moyer. “The facility included a significant post completion earn out feature that will create additional flexibility for them.”

Located in the South Lake Union submarket of Seattle, the project boasts an unmatched location surrounded by the city’s premier commercial, recreational and cultural amenities. South Lake Union is in the heart of Seattle’s tech and life sciences hub.

“Cushman & Wakefield offers considerable skill and valued experience to our clients in the Puget Sound and we continue actively growing in the region,” said Alison Beddard, Managing Principal, Washington for Cushman & Wakefield. “We are proud to be involved in developments like Skyglass Tower that deliver new high-quality product with lasting impact to our region.”
