HFF arranges $75 million refinancing for The Swig Company’s 501 Second Street in San Francisco


SAN FRANCISCO, CA – Holliday Fenoglio Fowler, L.P. (HFF) announced today that it has arranged $75 million to refinance 501 Second Street, a seven-story, 208,000-square-foot, Class A creative office property owned by The Swig Company in San Francisco’s SOMA submarket.

HFF worked on behalf of The Swig Company to secure the 10-year, fixed-rate loan through John Hancock. 

501 Second Street is located at 2nd and Bryant Streets, just three blocks from AT&T Park and in close proximity to the Central Subway project that will be completed in 2019.  It is also convenient to Caltrain, Muni, and BART, as well as Interstates 80 and 280, and Highway 101.  Originally built in 1925, the property has been continually upgraded by The Swig Company and is fully-leased to 17 tenants representing a variety of industries including technology, media, architecture, and venture capital.  501 Second Street features large efficient floor plates and one-level of below-grade parking.

The HFF debt placement team representing the borrower was led by senior managing director Bruce Ganong and associate director Brandon Roth.

“We are delighted to lock-in a great loan at favorable interest rate for one of the company’s signature long-term assets.  The team at HFF and John Hancock made the process seamless and very user-friendly,” reported Connor Kidd, V.P. of investments for The Swig Company.
“Strong sponsorship combined with an institutional quality asset that enjoys stable cash flow and a diverse rent roll, resulted in a very competitive response from life insurance companies and commercial banks,” said Ganong.
