First Trust Deed collateralized by a nearly 90,000 square foot shopping center in Tucson, AZ (about 120 miles south of Phoenix, AZ). The site is anchored by PETCO and has nine other tenants but has a total vacancy of 50%. The three freestanding single-story buildings are situated on over 10 acres of land that includes 450 parking spaces. Due to the current owner’s unwillingness and inability to spend additional money on tenant improvements, the property has seen the occupancy suffer over the past three years. As part of this loan, the borrower will receive over $1,000,000 for tenant improvements which will enhance the value of the project by reducing the vacancy of the property. The current listing broker has a few tenants that are looking to occupy the building. In addition to money for tenant improvements, there is about $1,000,000 that will be utilized to fix deferred maintenance and general capital expenditures to improve the overall site.
