Chicago, IL – August 25, 2022 – American Street Capital (“ASC”) announced today that it has secured a $3,202,000 refinance loan for a light industrial building located in Melrose Park, IL.

Built in 1951, the two story, 255,565 SF building is situated on 7.56 acres and was originally acquired vacant. The space was divided into multiple units to decrease tenant concentration.  The new units specifically cater to tenants in need of units between 500 to 10,000 square feet without the additional obligations of owning a building.  Additional amenities include 14 ft ceilings, six loading docks, 2 grade level doors, and ample parking surrounding the building.

The sponsor exclusively engaged ASC to secure the rate and term refinance.  American Street Capital arranged the 5-year fixed term loan on a 30-year amortization schedule with a step-down pre-payment penalty.  The loan was placed with a local commercial bank.

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