Vertically-integrated commercial real estate investment, development and lending platform Driftwood Capital has provided a $9 million mezzanine loan toward the recapitalization of the 180-key Home2 Suites by Hilton Charlotte Uptown in Charlotte.
Located at 610 S Caldwell Street, the Home2 Suites by Hilton Charlotte Uptown is just off I-277, within blocks of Bank of America Stadium and the Spectrum Center, across the street from the NASCAR Hall of Fame. The pet-friendly hotel amenities include a fitness center and business center, along with free breakfast and free WiFi.
The loan comes behind a $23 million senior mortgage provided by Benefit Street Partners. The debt was used to take out the existing construction loan on the hotel, which opened in November 2019. The mezzanine loan on the Charlotte property has a three-year term, with no extension options, and represents a 65% loan-to-value. Driftwood’s Lending Fund originates mezzanine loans and preferred equity investments in the $5 to $75 million range.
