ASC Arranges Cash-Out Loan on Logan Square Multifamily

American Street Capital (ASC) secured an $8.17-million cash-out refinance loan for a 45-unit multifamily building in the North Side’s Logan Square neighborhood. The loan was originated by ASC president and founder Igor Zhizhin.

ASC utilized its correspondent agency relationships to secure a five-year fixed, non-recourse loan on a 30-year amortization schedule for the unidentified borrower.  Prior to this transaction, ASC placed the acquisition bridge loan and original permanent debt for the asset.

The courtyard-style multifamily building was originally built in 1928 and recently gut renovated and modernized.  The unit mix is composed of one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments with hardwood floors, condo-quality kitchens and sunrooms. 

Additional amenities include a large bike storage room, Wi-Fi, and smartphone-controlled common laundry.  The property is located half a mile from CTA’s California station.
