1st Priority Mortgage Lien

Loan Amount
Property Type
Philadelphia, PA

BridgeInvest recently closed a $5.4 MM acquisition loan collateralized by a 77,880-square foot development site in the Olde Kensington neighborhood of Philadelphia. The project has in-place approvals to be developed into a mix of townhomes and apartments totaling 190 units. The loan proceeds will allow the Sponsor, Streamline, to complete the necessary environmental clean-up prior to moving forward with development of the property. Streamline is a Philadelphia based developer focused on constructing high density, affordable living for low- and middle-income households.

Transaction Highlights

Attractive Advance Rate
The loan was sized based on the underlying collateral value, not just the purchase price, resulting in a leverage point of over 70% of the price.

Flexible Structuring
Due to the variety of potential exit strategies, the loan was structured to allow Streamline to simultaneously pursue the development or sale of separate portions of the property.

Quick Execution
BridgeInvest executed and closed the transaction in just one month to meet the Sponsor’s acquisition deadline.
