Karlin Real Estate Provides Short Term Loans to Refi Tech and Multifamily Projects in So. California
In the larger of the two financings, Karlin provided first mortgage debt to Soitec to recapitalize its 165,659-square-
“The I-15 corridor is one of the most desirable commercial regions in San Diego, and Soitec is an example of the many major employers based in the area,” said Larry Grantham, managing director of real estate lending for Karlin.
In a separate financing, Karlin funded a $6.5 million bridge loan to finance the recapitalization of a 4.68-acre land parcel in Yorba Linda, CA for a planned 159-unit multifamily development known as Lakeview. Karlin’s loan allows the project developer, ETCO Homes, which has developed several successful housing projects in Orange County, time to complete the permitting process and obtain construction financing. Construction on Lakeview, which is located on the Southeast corner of Lakeview and Mariposa Avenues, adjacent to Yorba Linda Lakebed Park, is expected to commence later this year.
“Housing in Yorba Linda is comprised largely of single family residences, with only 15 percent dedicated to rental units,” said Grantham, “With such limited supply and a high barrier to entry for new product, there is tremendous demand for a product like Lakeview, which will include both market rate and affordable housing rentals.”
