This week, CRED iQ reviewed the commercial real estate lending landscape and highlighted 5 properties that have secured financing in February 2022. The highlighted loan originations cover several property types (retail, mixed use, and multifamily), giving a broad range of financing deals that have been completed across a range of MSAs such as Detroit, Kansas City, Cleveland and Los Angeles.

Using the CRED iQ platform’s Comps functionality, which features propriety Comps scoring for the CRE loan universe, we compared lending terms and loan structures to get a sense of the trends in the CRE lending environment. Additionally, we provided valuations for each asset to evaluate leverage levels in relation to originators’ LTVs. The CRED iQ valuations factor in a base-case (most likely), a downside (significant loss of tenants), and dark scenarios (100% vacant). Base-case valuations for select properties are provided below.

Midtown Square

580,251 sf, Power Center, Troy, MI

An $80.4 million loan was originated by Morgan Stanley on February 14, 2022 to refinance existing debt on a power center in Troy, MI, located about 18 miles outside of Detroit. Part of the proceeds from the new origination, totaling approximately $20 million, were used to fund a guarantor reserve due to the absence of a non-recourse carveout guarantor. The guarantor reserve funds may be released after an acceptable guarantor is put into place. The 10-year loan was structured with an interest rate of 4.00% and an initial two-year interest-only period. The loan will be locked out from prepayment for 2 years, and defeasance will be permitted after lockout through the remainder of the loan term until its open period, 5 months prior to maturity.

Using CRED iQ’s Comps functionality, the closest comparable origination was a two-property portfolio loan secured in part by The Forum At Gateways retail center in Sterling Heights, MI. The loan was originated in September 2019 and had an interest rate of 3.94%. The Forum At Gateways is anchored by a Walmart and an LA Fitness. Of note, the comparable loan has been in special servicing since July 2020.

Midtown Square is anchored by Home Depot, Target, Kohl’s, and Kroger. Altogether, the four anchors account for 77% of the property’s NRA. Home Depot and Target have scheduled lease expirations in January 2026 and the Kohl’s lease expires in January 2027. However, all three tenants have several multi-year extension options. The property was 99% occupied as of January 2022 and was appraised at a value of $127.8 million ($220/sf) as of December 2, 2021. The appraisal resulted in an LTV of 63%, and an implied cap rate of 5.58% based on the originator’s underwritten NCF. The debt yield came in at 8.9%, also based on NCF from the originator’s underwriting. For the full valuation report and loan-level details, click here.

Crocker Park (Phase 3)

110,352 sf, Retail, Westlake, OH

Stark Properties secured $19.5 million in mortgage debt from JP Morgan on February 4, 2021 to refinance existing debt on Phase 3 of Crocker Park, an open-air lifestyle center and mixed-use development located in Westlake, OH. The loan is structured with a 10-year term and amortizes over a 30-year schedule. The interest rate is 4.536%, which is comparatively higher than other recent originations secured by retail. The loan will be locked out from prepayment for about 2 years, and defeasance will be permitted after lockout through the remainder of the loan term until its open period, 6 months prior to maturity. Phase One and Phase Two of the Crocker Park development were previously encumbered by a $140 million mortgage that was originated in July 2016 and had an interest rate of 4.92%.

Phase 3 of Crocker Park features a town center layout with ground-floor retail below three to four-story residential components. Only the ground-floor retail components serve as collateral for the recent origination. The largest tenants are H&M (21% of the NRA), Cost Plus World Market (17% of the NRA), and buybuyBaby (13% of the NRA). Cost Plus World Market was formerly a subsidiary of Bed Bath & Beyond while buybuyBaby still is. Both tenants’ leases are scheduled to expire in 2037; however, Bed Bath & Beyond and associated retailers have exhibited willingness to close stores as part of operational efficiency assessments. CRED iQ identified examples of such closures in our January 18, 2022 WAR Report. Credit risk from the property’s primary tenants will be an ongoing concern throughout the loan’s term.

The Phase 3 retail portion of the property was appraised for $31.7 million, equal to $287/sf, as of October 21, 2021, which resulted in an LTV of 61%. The originator’s underwritten net cash flow equated to a debt yield of 9.5% and implied a cap rate of 5.84%. For the full valuation report and loan-level details, click here.

Covina Palms Business Center

71,925-sf, Mixed Use (Medical Office/Retail), West Covina, CA

Bank of America funded an $11.2 million mortgage on February 11, 2022 to refinance existing debt on the Covina Palms Business Center in West Covina, CA. The interest-only loan has a 10-year term and an interest rate of 3.71%. The loan will be locked out from prepayment for 2 years, and then require a yield maintenance charge for prepayment until its open period 5 months prior to maturity in March 2032. Two of CRED iQ’s highest scoring property comps are part of a 14-property Southern California retail portfolio that secures a $214.8 million loan. The portfolio loan secured by the comparable properties, which had an interest-only structure, was originated by Argentic Real Estate Finance in April 2019 and had an interest rate of 4.06%.

The Covina Palms Business Center has the typical layout of a retail community center; however, multiple primary tenants use the space as medical offices. CRED iQ recently provided analysis on the inclusion of mixed-use collateral in CMBS and featured the various combinations of property uses including retail properties with office components such as the Covina Palms Business Center. The largest tenant, 27% of the NRA, operates as a dental practitioner. The property appraised for $22.5 million, equal to $313/sf, as of October 27, 2021, which resulted in an LTV of 50% and implied a cap rate of 5.23% based on the originator’s underwritten net cash flow.
