HFF arranges $16.4 million refinancing for Los Angeles industrial building

Paul Brindley
 LOS ANGELES, CA – HFF announced it has arranged a $16.4 million refinancing for Santa Fe Commerce Center, a 261,533-square-foot industrial building in Los Angeles, California.

               Working on behalf of EVOQ Properties, HFF placed the three-year, floating-rate loan with Principal Real Estate Investors.  Loan proceeds were used to refinance an existing bridge loan that HFF placed on the property in June 2012. 

               Santa Fe Commerce Center sits on 8.58 acres at 2425 E. 12th Street, which is 1.5 miles southeast of downtown Los Angeles with immediate access to Interstate 10.  The 100 percent leased, multi-tenant property includes 24’ clear ceiling heights.

               The HFF team representing the borrower was led by associate director Jeff Sause and senior managing director Paul Brindley. 

“The loan was used to refinance an existing loan that we closed approximately two years ago at a much higher interest rate,” Brindley said.

“The improved rate is primarily due to four factors:  better cash flow; at the time of the original loan, the company had been recently recapitalized by an institutional investor to affect an emergence from bankruptcy; new sponsor had recently replaced the management team at emergence and the debt markets are much better today.

“ The new loan is evidence that HFF's relationships with life companies have never been more valuable to borrowers.”
