LOS ANGELES—A local developer has secured a $41 million construction loan to build the Valencia, a 218-unit, class-A apartment complex in Downtown Los Angeles. Located on one city block at Wilshire Boulevard and Valencia Street, the project includes 4,500-square-feet of ground-floor commercial space.

The interest-only construction loan is LIBOR-based and has a 70% loan-to-cost ratio. The funds will be used to cover both the hard and soft construction costs as well as reimbursement for an existing land loan, which was used to purchase the development site. The loan has a three-year term and includes two one-year extension options. “The loans were a great match for the borrower since they were only looking for one lender to close the loan,” Mitch Paskover, Continental Funding Group president, tells GlobeSt.com. “Most of the banks we approached wanted to split the loan with another lender given the size. The borrower wanted to avoid that. We found a lender to originate the whole loan and then syndicate a portion of it after we closed.” Paskover secured the funds on behalf of the developer.
