Keating Hotel Group Refinances 2 Historic Gaslamp Properties
By Alex Girda, Associate Editor
The Keating Hotel Group has refinanced the Keating Hotel and the Mercantile Building, two neighboring properties in San Diego’s Gaslamp District. A team from Holiday Fenoglio Fowler L.P. led by Aldon Cole and Husayn Hasan placed a 10-year, 4.7 percent fixed-rate loan with Cantor Commercial Real Estate.
Located at 5th Avenue and F Street, the vintage buildings total 40,400 square feet. The 35-key Keating Hotel dates from 1890 and underwent its most recent major renovation five years ago. Pininfarina, perhaps best known for its collaboration with Ferrari, served as design consultant for that upgrade.
Located next door to the Keating Hotel, the Mercantile Building is currently home to a two-level Brick + Mortar restaurant.
Keating Hotel Group, which is headed by Edward Kaen and Chris Harris, will use the proceeds to retire existing debt and repatriate equity, HFF explained in a statement.
