Northmarq arranges acquisition financing of $11,840,000 for University Crossing in St. Paul’s Midway District

University Crossing

MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA (February 8, 2022) – Bill Mork, Vice President of Northmarq’s Minneapolis office, negotiated $11.84 million in acquisition financing for University Crossing. The 84,150 sq. ft. medical office building is located at 2200 University Avenue West in St. Paul, Minnesota. CBRE represented Essjay Investments, who sold the property to Capital Partners LLP. The transaction was structured with a 10-year term on a 25-year amortization schedule. Northmarq arranged the permanent-fixed loan for the borrower through its relationship with a commercial bank.

“In a challenging office lending market, we were able to meet the client’s needs for high leverage acquisition financing with future funding for TI/LCs,” said Mork. “We sourced bank, bridge, and life company quotes for this acquisition and our banking relationship offered the most attractive terms – including a three percent interest rate and two years of interest only.”
