CrowdStreet, a crowdfunding marketplace connecting accredited investors with institutional-grade real estate investment, announced Thursday (August 7th) it has listed a mezzanine financing for 30 Knightsbridge Road, a four-building class B+ office complex in Piscataway, N.J., sponsored by EverWest Real Estate Partners, a privately held Denver-based real estate investment and operating company.
By listing on CrowdStreet, EverWest is targeting a goal of $1.7 million as part of its $6 million mezzanine financing. The target annual cash yield to investors is 10.5 percent. The investment opportunity in 30 Knightsbridge offers attractive risk-adjusted returns, as the total debt position through the mezzanine loan of $92 per square foot is well covered by the current property value of $119 per square foot.
CEO of CrowdStreet, Tore Steen, stated, “CrowdStreet is excited to work with EverWest and provide access for investors to participate in the 30 Knightsbridge mezzanine loan. With the property’s strong tenant base, proximity to major transportation routes and New York City, as well as advanced infrastructure and amenities, we believe that 30 Knightsbridge is a great example of the institutional-grade deals we are listing on the CrowdStreet marketplace.”
30 Knightsbridge, which is valued at $82 million, is comprised of 686,316 square feet of commercial office space. Currently 91 percent of the four-building property is leaded to nine tenants, including AT&T Corp. QualCare Inc., AECOM Technology Corp., Cablevision and Paychex North America Inc. Keystone Property Group acquired the property in June 2014 as part of $230 million purchase on a 2.3 million square foot, 12 building office portfolio owned by Mack-Cali Realty Corporation.
Director at EverWest Real Estate Partners, Thomas Ling, noted, “We chose to post 30 Knightsbridge on the CrowdStreet platform because they focus on and understanding institutional-grade commercial real estate. The CrowdStreet business model provides a modern approach to online capital formation that complements our traditional fundraising process. The senior management team at EverWest has collectively invested over $30 billion across the United States and we are confident that 30 Knightsbridge presents an attractive opportunity for investors.”
Recently, CrowdStreet close a large fundraising effort on behalf of Mainstreet, an innovative developer of short-stay rehabilitation and long-term care properties, in May, raising $1.6 million in just four weeks, one of the largest raises for a real estate crowdfunding transaction.
