Värde Partners Closes $77.7 Million Mortgage LoanOctober 8, 2018
MINNEAPOLIS – Värde Partners, the global alternative investment firm, today announced the closing of a $77.7 million loan for Triangle Plaza, a 636,000 square foot, Class A office complex located in Chicago, Illinois.
The loan provides financing for the leasehold acquisition of Triangle Plaza. The Class A office towers are located in Chicago’s O’Hare submarket and benefit from proximity to mass transit and a strong rent roll highlighted by numerous investment grade tenants.
“Värde has a long history of originating loans and looks to provide flexible capital in the commercial mortgage space,” said Jim Dunbar, Senior Managing Director at Värde. “We believe this property is attractive given its transit-oriented location, best-in-class amenities, outstanding tenancy and strong sponsorship profile.”
The debt was arranged by John Parrett and Steve Roth of CBRE Chicago.
Värde has more than 20 years of experience investing across a range of mortgage assets. Earlier this year, the firm closed Värde Mortgage Fund II with $750 million in committed capital to invest in both commercial and residential mortgage opportunities.
