The capital markets group of Comstock Holding Companies, Inc., has completed a refinancing of the first three office towers developed by CHCI at Reston Station in Reston. In connection with the closing of the transaction, CHCI received approximately $2.6 million in debt and equity origination fees.
CHCI subsidiaries arranged the non-recourse construction take-out recapitalization package on behalf of Comstock Partners, LC, an affiliated, privately held company that which includes a $312-million senior loan provided by a Blackstone subsidiary and a $43-million preferred equity facility with a DivcoWest subsidiary.
