Buona Beef Portfolio

CHICAGO, ILLINOS (March 11, 2022) – Erik Kunz, vice president in Northmarq’s Chicago debt/equity office, arranged the $8.7 million refinance of a portfolio of Buona Beef properties located throughout the Chicagoland area. The six single-tenant properties consist of a combined 47,177 sq. ft. The permanent-fixed loan was structured with a 10-year term on a 17-year amortization schedule. Northmarq secured financing for the borrower through its relationship with a correspondent life insurance company.   

“The lender has the existing loans on the three restaurants and was able to cross with the sponsor's corporate office and catering building,” noted Kunz.
