Tower’s client is a Canadian citizen who owns the property through a Canadian-based single purpose entity. They acquired the property in 2013 for $5.5 million, utilizing seller financing at the time. The foreign ownership structure prohibited many conventional lenders from financing the property, but with a new 10-year lease recently signed by the Katerra, Tower was able to secure the $4.5 million loan through a local bank offering a competitive 5-year fixed rate and amortization schedule. Should the borrower wish to sell the asset during the term, the loan offers a great deal of flexibility by waiving the prepayment penalty upon an arms-length transaction.
