Progress Capital Arranges Acquisition Financing for Somerset County Strip Mall

Brian Anderson and Eddie Miro of Progress Capital secured $8,900,000 in acquisition financing for the purchase of Franklin Court shopping center, a 42,116 square-foot retail strip sitting at 920 Hamilton Street, Somerset NJ.

Brian faced some challenges, including not meeting the bank’s minimum DSCR requirement, which jeopardized the loan amount needed by the borrower.  By working with the lender, Brian managed to structure the deal to meet the 1.25 DSCR minimum requirement and secure $8,900,000 in loan proceeds at a 4.25% interest rate fixed for 5-years and 30-year amortization on behalf of his client.

While Franklin Court benefits from the surrounding residential neighborhoods and professional corporations, the center has been historically well leased, anchored by notable tenants such as Walgreens, KFC, Davita Dialysis and Dunkin Donuts.
