Chicago, IL – June 4, 2020 – American Street Capital (“ASC”) announced today that it has secured a $2.45 million cash-out refinance loan for a 52-unit multi-family building in Chicago, IL.

The sponsor, a seasoned owner and operator throughout Chicago, requested a significant cash-out with flexible pre-payment with less than 6 months of stabilization in the transitional South Shore neighborhood during the very challenging lending environment due to COVID-19.  To ensure the maximum proceeds and flexibility, ASC structured an initial cash out with the ability for additional proceeds to be released once COVID-19 restrictions are lifted. The loan included a highly competitive fixed five-year rate, 30-year amortization, limited closing costs, with only 4 years of pre-payment penalty.

Located in Chicago’s South Shore neighborhood, the five-story multi-family building was built in 1970 and underwent a complete gut renovation in 2018.  The renovations included building exterior, common areas, mechanicals, kitchens and bathrooms as well as the addition of a penthouse resident lounge.  The unit mix is composed of studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments with an average unit size of 656 square feet.  Additional amenities included 38 surface parking spaces, common laundry, storage, key card entry and complimentary WIFI and cable for its market and subsidy tenants.  The asset was 97 percent occupied at closing.

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