Columbia Pacific Advisors Funds $17.6 MM Loan on Office and Retail Buildings in Los Angeles

Rezul News/10420649
SEATTLE - May 21, 2019 - Rezul -- Columbia Pacific Advisors through its real estate lending platform has provided a Southern California-based retail investor with a $17.6 million bridge loan to finance the acquisition of a two-story, 43,000-square-foot mixed-use creative office building and the repositioning of two retail buildings, all located in the greater Los Angeles area.

The office building is located at 3610 S. San Pedro Street in downtown Los Angeles.  A portion of the loan proceeds will be used to fund tenant improvements and HVAC upgrades to this 1940's vintage building.

The 12-month, interest-only loan also will support the conversion of two recently acquired retail buildings in the San Fernando Valley and downtown Los Angeles into fully operational coin-operated laundromats.   The sponsor has a decade-long track record of successfully executing their business plan, converting value-add retail facilities into coin operated laundromats throughout Los Angeles.

"Despite the strength and experience of the sponsor, the financing was complicated by some unresolved past title issues," said Columbia Pacific Advisors Senior Vice President of Originations, Will Nelson. "The financing opportunity was brought to us by a broker, Antonio Hachem from George Smith Partners, who from past experience, was confident in our ability to navigate a complicated structure.  We were able to close on all three transactions individually within 10 days of working out existing problems with the previous lender."
