BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. - July 17, 2014 - PRLog -- Commercial real estate advisory firm Lucent Capital has arranged  $25 million in debt financing for the recapitalization of a leasehold interest in 315 South Beverly Drive, a five-story Class A office building located in Beverly Hills.

The sponsor, a Beverly Hills-based real estate investment firm acquired the leasehold interest in the 68,423-square-foot building 2006 and immediately undertook a capital improvement program that included extensive interior and exterior renovations as well as adding 2,400 square feet of ground floor retail.

“The sponsor was able to leverage its operating and turnaround expertise, with the building’s superior location and strong tenant demand from professional, entertainment and other high-end tenants, to increase and maintain overall occupancy at more than 95 percent,” said Lucent Capital Managing Director Steven Yazdani.

The structured financing package comprises a $21 million first mortgage and a $4 million mezzanine loan totaling 85% LTV.  The non-recourse financing provided an attractive 10-year fixed rate with 5 years of interest only.   Both financing tranches were funded by a real estate finance company that is backed by one of the largest sovereign wealth funds.

Financing proceeds are being used to pay off the existing debt on the asset and recapture sponsor equity.
