Bethesda, MD, May 29, 2020

Phillips Realty Capital (“PRC”) announces that it has arranged $29 million in financing for Reston Metro Center One (the “Property”), a 124,076 SF office building  located at 12120 Sunrise Valley Drive and within walking distance of the future Reston Town Center Silver Line Metrorail Station.

The PRC team worked exclusively on behalf of the borrower, HighBrook Investors, to secure the three-year plus extension options, floating-rate loan provided by Rubenstein Mortgage Capital (“RMC”), the debt investment platform of Rubenstein Partners, L.P. (“Rubenstein”). The vacant Property was acquired through a note sale where HighBrook subsequently took title. Loan proceeds represented initial financing for the acquisition with additional funds for capital expenditures and leasing reserves.

“HighBrook’s repositioning experience should serve them well in transforming Reston Metro Center One, and we are pleased to support their business plan with this financing. We are excited about our partnership with HighBrook, and the Phillips Realty Capital team played an integral role in our successful execution,” said Ashesh Parikh, RMC.

Built in 2000, the fully vacant Property provides a premier headquarters opportunity for prospective tenants relocating to Reston, offering signage visibility from the Dulles Toll Road, walkable Metro access, and is located 6.5 miles from Washington Dulles International Airport. Property amenities include ample parking (3.5 spaces per 1,000 rentable square feet), access to high level fiber, an employee lounge, a tenant fitness center with full locker rooms, and is surrounded by ample walkable amenities including the Reston Metro Center and the future $1.4 billion Halley Rise mixed-use development.

The Phillips Realty Capital team that structured the financing on behalf of the borrower included Malcolm Shaw, Steve Shaw, Harmon Handorf, and Bill Wrench.

PRC Secures $49,625,000 Acquisition Loan for Two Herndon Office Buildings

Bethesda, MD, January 16, 2020

A joint venture between Goodstone LLC and Waterfall Asset Management LLC announced that it secured $49,625,000 of debt financing from Bridge Investment Group to acquire and renovate Northridge I & II, two separate but contiguous properties that jointly offer 258, 452 square feet of office space in Herndon, Virginia adjacent to Amazon Web Service’s east coast hub. The acquisition loan structured by Phillips Realty Capital includes funding for 100% of Goodstone’s strategic modernization plans that combine the properties into one integrated campus with shared amenities and upgrades that will restore the buildings to “best-in-class” status. Timing of this transformative redevelopment will be concurrent with delivery of the proximate Innovation Center Metro mixed-use transit center.

“Our relationships with two different property sellers at this unique time and location presented a special set of circumstances we are acutely well positioned to leverage,” said Stephen Durr, President of Goodstone. “By consolidating ownership, we can make high-impact investments at competitive rates, timed to align with growth around the new metro so the value of the new combined asset will exceed the sum of its parts.” Goodstone plans to unify the properties with shared tenant amenities including food service, conferencing, fitness and tenant collaboration spaces, as well as deliver contemporary spec suites and turnkey tenant spaces desired by today’s employers seeking to attract talent.

“Northridge is well-located to serve a growing tenant market of technology, cyber-security, healthcare, and defense firms,” said Jay Haberman, Managing Director, Bridge Investment Group. “The properties are 87% leased, falling to 67% over the next eighteen months, which is ideal timing for Goodstone to implement its transformative vision tailored to suit the needs of this market.”

“The financing structure includes good news money to maximize the upside of Goodstone’s aggressive stabilization plan,” said John Sieber, Phillips Realty Capital Principal. “Phillips has worked with Goodstone on other value-add deals and with Bridge on recent recapitalizations and acquisitions. That combined experience and related knowledge served both the borrower and lender.”

A Cushman & Wakefield team led by Drew Flood and Shaun Collins represented the seller of Northridge I. Bill Prutting and Jim Molloy with Jones Lang LaSalle represented the seller of Northridge II.

Bethesda, MD, January 14, 2020

Phillips Realty Capital (PRC) announced that a $27,800,000 equity financing on behalf of Woodfield Development has closed and funded. Argosy Real Estate Partners (AREP) provided a joint venture equity investment toward the development of Morrison Yard, a 380-unit, trophy multifamily community in Charleston’s Morrison Drive (NoMo) neighborhood on the Upper Peninsula. The project is AREP’s fourth qualified Opportunity Zone investment. The joint venture equity investment was structured by Adam Bieber, Managing Director at Phillips Realty Capital.

Construction has commenced on the site, which will consist of a ten-story concrete high-rise building and a six-story wood-framed mid-rise building, each featuring studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom floor plans with best-in-class interior appointments and community amenities. The complex will offer ground-floor retail, a two-story parking structure, an expansive clubhouse, eight open courtyard spaces, multiple water features, and unparalleled views. The NoMo area in the Peninsula submarket is emerging as Charleston’s premier residential destination, offering tremendous access to the market’s primary employment nodes and lifestyle amenity destinations in nearby Mount Pleasant.

“We are thrilled to have had the opportunity to work on behalf of Woodfield Investments and Argosy Real Estate Partners on the structuring of Morrison Yard,” Bieber said. “Both groups contain the perfect mixture of expertise and experience in the market, and we look forward to seeing how this incredible, transformative project changes the landscape of the NoMo District in Charleston.“

“Since the moment we sourced Morrison Yard, we have been excited about the opportunity. This development was sourced prior to the Opportunity Zone designation, and upon receiving that designation, we were excited about how the advantages would benefit our partners as well as the community,” said Woodfield Partner Mike Schwarz.

“Adam and PRC have been a terrific partner in understanding our developments and finding excellent parties to collaborate with,” Schwarz added. “The entire Woodfield team is elated about our first joint venture with Argosy Real Estate Partners, which we hope will be the first of many.”

Commenting on the project, Argosy Vice President Jason Abel said, “The Argosy model has always been to source opportunities in partnership with experienced local operating partners. Charleston is a market that we have recently invested in and targeted, and we are excited about the partnership with Woodfield Development and the addition of Morrison Yard to our platform. We echo the excitement around the project and look forward to a successful relationship with Woodfield on what we hope will be the beginning of a multi-project relationship.”

PRC’s Mark Remington Share Insights on Hotel Financing

Bethesda, MD, November 7, 2019

PRC’s Mark Remington was part of a panel discussion on “The Anatomy of the Capital Stack & Creative Financing” at Bisnow’s Hotel Leadership, Investment & Management Summit.

…The pullback on LTV creates more opportunities for gap financing … Another source that can fill the gap is EB-5 financing, said Phillips Realty Capital principal Mark Remington.

Remington also said he is seeing banks lending only up to 50% or 55% of the capital stack. He said some debt funds are willing to go up to 65% or 75%, but the interests rates become significantly higher. “In the bank world they’re reserving their precious capital for their best clients,” Remington said. “They’re doing lower leverage and more recourse. The debt funds are filling the void as they did 10 years ago.”

PRC Structures $28.8M Acquisition Loan for Purchase of Class A Office in New Jersey

Bethesda, MD, October 30, 2019

Phillips Realty Capital announced that a $28,795,000 transaction on behalf of Legacy Investing, LLC, a repeat client, has closed and funded. Bridge Investment Group provided non-recourse financing for Legacy to acquire a 205,000 square foot Class-A office building located at 77 Corporate Drive in Bridgewater, NJ. Phillips Realty Capital’s William Lawson and Adam Bieber structured and placed the loan.

Originally developed as an expansion of Sanofi’s adjacent headquarters building, 77 Corporate Drive is part of a lush 300-acre office park located between Interstates 287 and 78. Built in 2011, fully configured for Sanofi by 2014, and upgraded in 2019, the property is comprised of four stories of highly efficient office space that accommodates close to 1,000 seats and over 100 meeting spaces. Building amenities include a café, sit-down areas, conference facilities, full building generator back-up and four loading dock bays. Designed to capitalize on the property’s central New Jersey location, less than an hour outside of New York City, 77 Corporate Drive has the unique potential to accommodate a parking ratio of seven spaces per 1,000 square feet leased.

Legacy Investing purchased the property from Senior Housing Properties Trust for $47.5 million. Currently 59% leased to IQVIA, a publicly traded multinational health information technology and clinical research company, the property is well suited to capture an additional anchor tenant or be demised for multi-tenant use with plug-n-play space featuring available furniture and high-end fixtures and finishes.

“Legacy’s proven track record with property lease-ups coupled with the characteristics of this asset fit well with Bridge Investment Group’s portfolio strategy,” explained Lawson of Phillips Realty Capital. “Based on deals we’ve worked on separately for each firm, we knew this would be a win-win for the borrower and the lender.”

“The Phillips team remains an outstanding resource and partner for our team when we evaluate all types of real estate transactions,” said Jay Rappaport, co-founder and Managing Member of Legacy Investing. “We were thrilled with their ability to structure the right capital partner for this opportunity, and we look forward to working with them and Bridge on future deals.”

Bethesda, MD, October 28, 2019

Phillips Realty Capital’s Mark Remington is proud to have worked with Madison Marquette and Bridge Investment Group on the $185 million recapitalization of One Light Street. Located in the heart of downtown Baltimore, One Light Street is a new trophy mixed-use high rise featuring luxury residential apartments, Class A office space, garage parking and ground floor retail. Madison Marquette recently issued a press release which can be read in its entirety on PR Newswire or below.

Madison Marquette, a leading private real estate investment manager, service provider, developer and operator, announced today that it has structured $185 million financing through Bridge Investment Group to recapitalize One Light Street, a new trophy mixed-use high-rise in downtown Baltimore. The 28-story mixed-use tower features luxury residential apartments, Class A office space with M&T bank as the lead tenant and 5,000 square feet of ground floor retail. Madison Marquette is the developer of the property.

“We are delighted to see downtown Baltimore attracting continued investment confidence,” said Peter Cole, Chief Development/Asset Management Officer, Madison Marquette. “This recapitalization is a solid endorsement of the live-work-play dynamic that One Light Street offers along with its extraordinary location in the heart of the city’s original Business District.”

“One Light Street’s success is compelling proof that Baltimore’s harbor city attributes continue to be magnets for new development,” said Jay Haberman, Managing Director, Bridge Investment Group. “This unique tower combines location, amenities and 21st century excitement within walking distance of Baltimore’s world class harbor and Camden Yards. Its popularity speaks to Baltimore’s stature as one of America’s great cities to live and do business.”

One Light Street offers a dramatic glass curtain wall and nine floors of modern, virtually column-free office space topped by ten floors of 280 luxury apartments with sweeping views of the Inner Harbor and Baltimore skyline. The tower also includes ground floor retail and nine levels of garage parking, located just two blocks from Baltimore’s Inner Harbor. The building earned a LEED Silver designation for new construction and offers a full complement of best-in-class amenities — including a gym, yoga studio, dog park, common space with indoor and outdoor kitchens, a pool, and sun deck. While the apartments are attracting a broad and diverse demographic – from young professionals to empty nesters, M&T Bank occupies 155,000 square feet on six floors for its Mid-Atlantic headquarters.

Peter Cole and George Kelly led the recapitalization efforts for Madison Marquette. Jay Haberman represented the lender, Bridge Investment Group in this transaction. Phillips Realty Capital’s Mark Remington served as advisor in the recapitalization.
