Chicago, IL – August 30, 2016 – American Street Capital (“ASC”) announced today that it has arranged $1.5 million in financing for a 10-unit mixed-use property consisting of one retail space and nine apartments in Chicago, IL. The transaction closed in August, 2016.

ASC worked exclusively on behalf of the sponsor to secure an acquisition loan for a recently rehabbed mixed-use property in the Avondale community of Chicago. The sponsor requested a 10-year term with 3-years of interest-only payments to maximize cash flow in the early years of the loan term.

ASC successfully met the request with a competitive 10-year loan term with a balloon structure. The loan was funded through the Freddie Mac Small Balance Program (“SBL”) that featured 80% LTV, non-recourse obligation, three years of interest only payments, assumption capabilities, step-down pre-payment, and a 30-year amortization schedule.

The loan was originated by Igor Zhizhin, the President of ASC.
