Chicago, IL – October 13, 2021 – American Street Capital (“ASC”) announced today that it has arranged $8MM bridge loan for a 37-unit mixed-use building in Chicago, IL.

The Logan Square neighborhood is located on the northwest side of Chicago with proximity to mass transit and downtown.  Built in 1902, the subject property is directly adjacent to the California blue line station and contains frontage on two major thoroughfares due to its unique pie shape.  The mixed-use asset contains 27 residential units in addition to 10 retail units that are occupied by an array of local and regional tenants.  The sponsor group plans to perform minor cosmetic improvements to the units as they turn.

American Street Capital was exclusively engaged by the sponsor group to source the high leverage acquisition bridge loan.  Utilizing its wide array of correspondent lender relationships, ASC arranged the non-recourse, 3-year floating term loan with interest-only payments.  The loan was placed on the balance sheet of a correspondent agency lender.

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