BofA Provides $463M Refi on National Self-Storage Portfolio
Newmark arranged a $462.5-million refinancing loan via Bank of America for a 101-asset, 6.9 million square foot national self-storage portfolio on behalf of SpareBox Storage and Davidson Kempner Capital Management. The portfolio spans eight states in strong submarkets .
The Newmark team for the debt refinancing was led by Dustin Stolly and Jordan Roeschlaub, co-heads of the Newmark Debt and Structured Finance Team, and senior managing director Nick Scribani, in partnership with Aaron Swerdlin and Taucha Hogue of Newmark’s Self-Storage group.
“Driving the success of this transaction is the strength of the sponsorship between SpareBox’s operating platform and the equity commitment provided by Davidson Kempner Capital Management,” said Stolly.
Roeschlaub added, “The platform’s strength is highlighted by the operating partner’s deep market knowledge and ability to manage their distributed portfolio remotely. Local market knowledge fuels the acquisition pipeline, and the use of sophisticated proprietary software creates an efficient operating environment.”
