PMZ Realty Capital LLC, a national boutique real estate investment banking firm focused on creating advantageous capital structure for their clients, has arranged a $8.1-million-dollar non-recourse loan for the DoubleTree by Hilton Racine, Wis. The loan had a low fixed interest rate of below 4.5 percent. The property has been without a franchise and is converting to the DoubleTree by Hilton flag within the next 12 months.

“This non-recourse loan offered the ability to get creative for our client Graves Hospitality,” stated Michael Sonnabend, managing member, PMZ Realty Capital-Hotel Finance Group. “PMZ was able to negotiate a deal without a franchise in place that allowed our client to utilize the funds to pay off current debt and fund the PIP to convert the property to a DoubleTree.”
