Transaction by
BridgeInvest closed an $11 MM first-priority, land refinance loan secured by a 32-acre development site in San Antonio, Texas. The site is currently home to the former Lone Star Brewery which the borrower plans to redevelop into a premier mixed-use destination along the San Antonio River and just south of the city’s central business district. The project would include hundreds of apartments, a hotel, office space and retail shops that will complement the area’s culture and history. The loan allowed the borrower to refinance his existing debt with a pending maturity and provide time to proceed with the appropriate development plan. BridgeInvest was able to close the loan within the necessary time frame despite the lack of cash-flow from the property. The loan structure allowed the borrower to accrue a portion of the interest costs until maturity to allow for increased flexibility in executing their business plan. This bridge loan was funded in February 2018.
