“The borrower and manager is a seasoned real estate executive who has done a lot to improve this property over the past couple of years,” commented Owen Breheny, Senior Vice President, Mortgage Banking Division at Centerline. “In addition to its solid sponsorship, the property is well-located with a very high occupancy rate. These factors made this an attractive deal for Centerline.”
