Chicago, IL – November 16, 2020 – American Street Capital (“ASC”) announced today that it has secured a $3 million permanent loan for an office building located in Chicago’s River North neighborhood.

Built in 1920 and located in downtown Chicago’s River North neighborhood, the five-story, 25,000 SF office building was acquired vacant in early 2018.  The renovation of the building focused on providing five open-concept 1,000 SF floor plates that emphasized the building’s historical loft features, such as hardwood floors, exposed brick walls, and exposed wooden beams and posts.  In addition to a complete rehab, modern amenities such as a high-speed elevator,  a common rooftop deck, and updated common areas were also added.

The sponsor group was looking for a fixed balance sheet product with pre-payment flexibility.  American Street Capital was able to source the three-year fixed term loan on a 25-year amortization schedule with a step-down pre-payment penalty.  The permanent loan was placed with a correspondent bank.  ASC also placed the bridge loan that was taken out by the new loan.

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