First Trust Deed collateralized by an approximately 21,000 square foot former Sears Outlet building in Germantown, WI (about 21 miles northwest of Milwaukee, WI). Although the property is currently vacant, the borrower has a lease ready to be signed with Harbor Freight to occupy the entire property. Once this new tenant is signed up (shortly after acquiring the property), the borrower will begin the renovation work on the property the tenant has requested. Harbor Freight will then begin their tenant specific work to the building with the anticipation of opening to the public in November. Single tenant assets have seen a hot commodity in today’s real estate marketplace. With this in mind, the borrower has teamed up with Harbor Freight as their preferred developer whereby the tenant tells the borrower what building they want to get into, and the borrower will go out and make it happen. This is one of those transactions.
