“The financings were all competitively bid,” said Elliot Eichner, Sonnenblick-Eichner principal. “The recently completed Archer Austin closed with only three months of operational history. The loan also provided for an earn-out allowing the borrower an opportunity to increase loan proceeds as the property ramps up.”

“The various financing structures met our client’s expectations in terms of locking in advantageous long-term fixed rates on two of the assets, and a flexible LIBOR-based facility on the other properties,” added Patrick Brown, also a principal of Sonnenblick-Eichner Company.
