$5.4 Million Senior Bridge Loan – Ohio Warehouse/Distribution

January 2017 – Bloomfield Capital (Birmingham, MI), a national direct lender and specialty real estate finance firm, has announced the closing of a $5.4 million senior bridge loan. The loan proceeds were used to purchase a warehouse/distribution property located in the Toledo, Ohio submarket of Perrysburg.

“Bloomfield’s funds provided the Sponsor the capital necessary to acquire the property out of receivership”, stated Brent Truscott, a principal at Bloomfield Capital. “The Sponsor plans to perform light maintenance and improvements at the property to attract new tenants and expand current leases to maximize occupancy.”

Toledo’s industrial market continues to remain strong.  Settled in the heart of the Midwest, Toledo is located within a day’s drive of approximately 70% of the U.S. population.  This is largely realized by the city’s interstate access as Toledo is intersected by both I-90 and I-75.

Convenient interstate access and centralized location have enabled Toledo to consistently outperform the larger U.S. industrial market.  As of Q3 2016, Toledo’s vacancy rate has decreased to 4.8%, down from 5.1% in the previous quarter. In addition, Toledo experienced net absorption of 390,554 square feet over the quarter.  Perrysburg, a submarket of Toledo, is consistently a top performing market in Toledo.  Perrysburg’s vacancy rate stands at 2.9%, representing seven quarters of consistent improvement. In addition, quoted rental rates have increased each of the last 6 quarters, ending Q3 2016 at $3.52 per square foot.

During the last 12 months, Bloomfield Capital has funded bridge loans on over 2,000,000 square feet of warehouse and industrial space across the United States.

$1.35 Million Senior Bridge Loan – Detroit Retail Property

November 2016 — Bloomfield Capital (Birmingham, MI), a national direct lender and specialty real estate finance firm, has announced the closing of a $1.35 million senior bridge loan. The loan proceeds were used to fund the renovation of a retail asset located within the heart of the central business district (CBD) of Detroit, Michigan.

“Bloomfield’s funds provided the Sponsor the capital necessary to complete the renovation of the property”, stated Nicholas Coburn, a principal at Bloomfield Capital. “The Sponsor originally acquired the asset several years ago, and once renovated, plans to open and operate a multi-use dining and entertainment facility at the property.”

The City of Detroit is in the midst of a remarkable resurgence. Private investors have continued to acquire and renovate historic buildings at a record pace, retail vacancy for the CBD is below 6.0%, and new residential projects throughout downtown are injecting 24/7 activity to promote a live-work-play environment.

“Due to the property’s location near major demand generators, Bloomfield’s loan will allow the Sponsor to complete the project and become a part of Detroit’s resurgence”, Coburn added.
