$78 Million Bridge Loan Structured by Talonvest


Talonvest Capital, Inc., a boutique self storage and commercial real estate mortgage brokerage firm, negotiated a $78 million refinance bridge loan secured by eight institutional quality, class A properties for Metro Self Storage.

The financing was secured by newer facilities totaling approximately 630,000 net rentable square feet with assets located in suburban Chicago, Illinois (5), New Jersey (2), and Pennsylvania (1). Five stores opened between June 2017 and November 2018 and the other three facilities recently received their Certificate of Occupancy. The properties all benefit from high visibility locations in densely populated areas with strong demographics and are predominantly 100 percent climate-controlled facilities.

The non-recourse, four-year loan was funded by an insurance company and included full term IO payments as well as reserves for interest and operations at the recently completed properties. The life company priced the loan competitively at a floating rate over LIBOR. To enhance optionality for the borrower, the loan was structured with a 12-month extension term and release provisions after the twelfth payment date of the loan term.

“Talonvest managed the entire loan process efficiently and stayed ahead of the process which resulted in a timely close.”
