First position loan collateralized by a retail shopping center totaling 120,000 square feet in North Aurora, Illinois (about 40 miles west of downtown Chicago, IL). The property is currently 76% occupied to national tenants like Michaels, UFC Gym, Petco, Sally’s Beauty, Dollar Tree, and Bath & Body Works. Six out of the seven existing tenants have been leasing the property for over 11 years each showing their dedication to the property. Target and JC Penny’s flank both sides of the property but are not part of this transaction. With current rents over $911,000 annually, the borrower looks to improve the already well performing asset by leasing the remaining 29,000 square feet of vacancy. Current market rents are about 20% higher than what the existing tenants are paying.
