KALAMAZOO, MI - Helvetica funded a $1,172,000 bridge loan for the purchase of an office building in Kalamazoo, MI. The sponsors are seasoned real estate investors who identified a below market, value-add opportunity to purchase the building at well below replacement cost. The property was 100% occupied by a credit tenant and had been institutionally managed since it's initial construction 15 years ago. The lease was expiring in less than a year and the tenant planned to vacate the building upon expiration.  
Once the lease expired the sponsor planned to re-tenant the building and stabilize the asset for a sale or permanent refinance. Due to the short term remaining on the lease the property was not eligible for traditional bank financing. Helvetica was able to step in and quickly close on the purchase loan. The sponsors' experience and excellent history of acquiring and managing value-add assets gives Helvetica great confidence they will be able to execute their plan.
