The firm is on track to originate in excess of $450 million of commitments for 2021 and recently entered its 31st state, demonstrating its national presence and vast deal flow pipeline.
Thorofare has originated nearly $2.8 billion since firm inception in 2010, across more than 10 property types throughout 31 states.
Founded in 2010, Thorofare Capital Inc. and its affiliates are an independent vertically integrated commercial real estate debt platform. Thorofare has a team of 24 professionals in Los Angeles and New York City offices.
The firm focuses on $10 million to $100 million financing transactions, targeting core plus, value-add, construction, recapitalization and distressed debt opportunities throughout the US. Thorofare operates a series of discretionary vehicles, JVs and separate accounts.
The Los Angeles-based company originated 19 debt investments totaling $327 million in capital commitments for 2020 and recorded the busiest fourth quarter in the bridge lender’s 10-year history. The firm pivoted its sourcing strategies in 2020 to identify special situation lending opportunities that typically surface amid capital markets volatility. Several options emerged during this period of market dislocation, which was primarily spurred by COVID-19, government enacted lockdowns and the ensuing global health crisis.
These are some of the reasons we selected the Thorofare Capital team for inclusion in our first-ever Top Mortgage Brokers and Lenders Awards. These awards recognize industry professionals who have demonstrated the highest standards in commercial real estate finance.
