“Today’s market is nearly unrecognizable from a year ago,” John Marshall and Joe Giordani, VPs at Northmarq Capital, say about the bridge lending market. The duo recently funded a $33.9 million bridge loan for an office redevelopment project of 1, 3, 5, 7, 9 Corporate Park in Irvine on behalf of borrower Kelemen Caamano Investments. The deal received interest from life insurance companies and pension funds to debt funds and banks as well as non-bank lenders, which the borrower ultimately chose for the deal. Marshall and Giordani say that the bridge lending market has taken off in the last 18 months, and office redevelopment projects are an attractive deal for the group. We sat down with Marshall and Giordani to talk about the demand for office redevelopment projects, this recent deal, and how the bridge lending market has changed.
