Centerline Capital closes $11.9M multifamily refinance in 30 Days

Redondo Beach, Calif.–Centerline Capital Group , a subsidiary of Centerline Holding Company, announced today that it processed a new $11.9M  Freddie Mac loan from start to closing in 30 days.

Freddie Mac helped immensely by providing a loan commitment in less than a week, according to Centerline. The loan structure was used to refinance the Sea Haven Resort Apartments, a 58-unit community located in South Bay in Redondo Beach, Calif.

The loan was a cash-out refinance that will enable the property owner to fully leverage the value of the facility.

“The borrower needed to close quickly due to a maturing loan, and with the help of Freddie Mac, we were able to turn the facility around in near record time,” says Richard Olrich, a Centerline managing director. “We were thrilled to be able to make this happen for our client.”

The Sea Havens Resort Apartments is a beach front, garden-style apartment complex featuring ocean views. The property is located less than a half mile west of the South Pacific Coast Highway and north of Palos Verdes Boulevard.

“The property is well-located across from the beach in Redondo, and the design of the buildings and units focuses on showcasing the panoramic view of the ocean, making the property in high demand,” adds Olrich.  “These factors, combined with the owners’ solid track record made this an attractive deal for Centerline and Freddie Mac.”
