Terrace Capital, Inc. Announces- $10MM Permanent Non-Recourse Commercial
Mortgage- Four Shopping Centers located in South Carolina.
New York, New York – October 1, 2011 - Terrace Capital, Inc.(TC), represented an established,
local commercial real estate developer (Avtex Commercial Properties, Inc.) in the refinance of
four class C shopping centers, totaling 276,852 square feet, located in the cities of Chesnee,
Greer, Cayce and Gaffney, South Carolina. The four cities are located in the Greenville,
Spartanburg and Columbia metro areas of South Carolina.
The proceeds of this $10 million loan were used by the borrower for the repayment of a $3.5MM
in existing debt and cash out proceeds of $6.5MM.
According to Mr. Dragone, the Managing Director and team leader on this deal at Terrace
Capital, “Avtex Commercial Properties is an established developer, with a 25 year history in
developing commercial property through the Carolinas, and turned to Terrace because of its
ability to navigate the non-recourse, credit markets and provide innovative solutions for low cost,
permanent financing in tertiary, rural real estate markets. The cities in which the properties were
located in had sparse populations; Chesnee (population -868), Gaffney (pop- 12,414), Cayce
(pop-12,528) and Greer (pop- 25,126). In addition to the tertiary markets, other challenges
included the class C nature of the properties and modest tenant sales, as centers were competing
with 10 Walmart Centers located in the region. Terrace, through various unique structuring
techniques, was able to alleviate the aforementioned issues and deliver non-recourse financing,
which included a $6.5MM, cash out.
The 10-year, fixed rate, non-recourse loan was amortized over 30 years and closed within 6 days
of investment committee approval.
