Napa Valley Land Loan: $8,300,000 development loan for raw land within the City of Napa. The project includes a proposed hotel and timeshare facility with a major flag as well as an additional parcel to be zoned for office. The loan funds paid off the original acquisition debt and provided all monies for the development of the land including engineering, architectural and zoning plans. In addition, there was cash-out to those partners signing with personal recourse to reimburse their original equity investment, and for those partners not receiving cash-out reimbursements, the loan is non-recourse! Loan is for a two-year period, interest only at 13% with interest reserves and negotiated exit fees. Larry Lehr, Ext. 43

Asian Retail Center: This is a 75% Loan To Value, $6 million refinance with approximately $3 million cash-out secured by an existing retail center anchored by an Asian supermarket in the greater Los Angeles area. The challenges were the type of tenants, the fact that the property is a "big box" department store converted to multi-tenant retail with 38 individual tenants and the property is encumbered by 3 senior land leases. Grace Capital was able to secure a commitment for a fixed rate loan at a 2.50 spread over the 10 Year T-Bill, 30 year amortization due in 10 Years with limited pre-payment penalties.
