Berkadia Arranges CMBS Refi on Grand Rapids Mid-Rise

Berkadia has arranged the financing of Lofts on Michigan, a mid-rise multifamily property in Grand Rapids, MI. Aaron Moll of Berkadia’s Michigan office secured a $9,350,000 CMBS loan for the property refinance.

“This refinance provided the sponsor the ability to re-size the loan, extend to a 30-year amortization with some interest only and remove recourse, all while lowering the interest rate,” said Moll. “We were pleased to be a part of this transaction. Grand Rapids’ strong metrics allows it to continue to remain in a positive light for institutional capital.”

Lofts on Michigan was built in 2016 and features 54 units with ground floor retail space. Located at 740 Michigan St. NE, the property offers convenient access to Medical Mile and downtown Grand Rapids.

Connect Texas Multifamily will take place August 15, 2019 in Dallas. For more information, or to register, click here.
