$38M Construction Takeout Arranged for DTLA Hotel

Highland Realty Capital secured a $38 million construction takeout loan for the Mayfair Hotel in DTLA. Los Angeles-based ICO Group recently completed a $35-million renovation of the 290-room hotel that includes two bars and the Eve American Bistro restaurant, as well as a 150-person ballroom.

The loan provided by a local bank included funds to complete a pool, cabana area and outdoor F&B area, which will allow for outdoor space with views of downtown for evening events in the ballroom. The pool and other exterior amenities will be completed by June for the summer of 2019.

The boutique hotel is located on West 7th Street, two blocks west of the Medici apartments in the transitioning Westlake District area. Highland Realty Capital’s Mike Guterman and Brad Sevier handled the financing assignment on behalf of the borrower.
