New York, NY - January 24, 2013- Centerline Capital Group ("Centerline"), a
provider of real estate financial and asset management services for affordable
and conventional multifamily housing, and a subsidiary of Centerline Holding
Company (OTC: CLNH), announced today it has provided a $33 million loan for the
acquisition of Spyglass Hill Apartments, a multifamily property located in
Denver, Colorado. The transaction is a Fannie Mae market rate loan that will
finance the acquisition of the property at a purchase price of $40 million.
Located at 7100 East Mississippi Avenue, Spyglass Hill Apartments is a garden-
style multifamily complex that includes a total of 573 units housed in 31 two-
and three-story residential buildings and a single-story leasing office building
The borrower is Spyglass 7100 LLC, a newly formed Colorado limited liability
company that is an affiliate of BMC Investments, whose CEO is Matthew Joblon.
"BMC is an active investor in the local market with a solid track record for
closing very quickly on deals and significantly improving asset quality upon
acquisition," said Suzanne Cope, SVP of Debt Originations at Centerline Capital
Group. "Centerline has had great success partnering with this sponsor, having
closed several deals together in 2012 and has great confidence in this deal. We
were all thrilled to execute this Fannie Large Loan in only 28 days from start
"We had a small window to close this transaction and knew we could count on
Centerline to execute in the extraordinarily tight timeframe. They created true
value for BMC in the transaction because of their ability to underwrite,
understand and ultimately execute on the deal in the allotted timeframe - this
secured the deal for us," noted Joblon. "As we execute on our internal goal of
creating significant scale both locally and in other states, we will continue to
grow our relationship with Centerline."
The Denver market continues to improve as is indicated by its low 3.68% overall
vacancy rate and is forecast to continue to improve as there are currently no
plans to increase multifamily inventory in the immediate area. Spyglass Hill
Apartments is currently 94% occupied.
The unit mix includes 281 one-bedroom, one-bathroom units, and 292 two-bedroom,
one-bathroom apartments. The property also includes 996 surface asphalt parking
