NEWPORT BEACH, CA (March 28, 2019 ) – Newmark Realty Capital, Inc. (NRC), the largest independent commercial mortgage banking firm in the U.S., has arranged $21,700,000 for Union Bay Apartments located in Seattle, WA. Centered in the forefront of the city’s trendiest area, South Lake Union, the seven-story, 74-unit mid-rise apartment complex offers a variety of spacious studios, 1, and 2-bedroom units along with ground floor retail.
Andy Bratt, Principal, and Spencer Seibring, Associate, of Newmark’s Newport Beach office, structured the 10-year term loan at a highly competitive rate with a Wall Street lender. The sponsor, a privately owned Los Angeles based development company, acquired the property two years ago and implemented an intensive value-add strategy. The property was reaching stabilization and the sponsor wanted to maximize cash-out, interest-only, and lock in long-term fixed-rate financing. Newmark worked with the lender to provide a unique underwriting structure focused on interest-only underwriting and maximizing loan proceeds.About Newmark Realty Capital
