Jones Lang LaSalle (“JLL”) has been retained by the Seller on an exclusive basis to arrange the sale of a $190.8 million loan (the “Loan” or “Note”) secured by the first mortgage on an office building of scale located in the Chicago CBD (the“Property” or “Collateral”). The Loan was originated in October 2015 and structured with a 5-year initial term. Interest-only payments are calculated based upon a floating rate equal to the base rated plus 1% (currently 4.25%), such floating rate to be increased by an additional 5% upon the occurrence of a future event of default. The loan matured in October 2020 in the absence of a principal payoff. Borrower executed a modification in June 2021, which extended the maturity date to December 31, 2021 and formalized Borrower’s assent to a deed-in-lieu agreement – to be held and executed by Lender upon occurrence of a future default. A second modification in December 2021 provided for a final maturity extension to March 31, 2022. This offering provides investors with a unique opportunity to acquire a sizable performing note with the ability to bypass a foreclosure process in the event of a default and assume ownership on a trophy office tower in Chicago.
