Balance-sheet lender 3650 REIT funded three 10-year, first-mortgage loans totaling more than $130 million to refinance three properties across the United States. The group loaned $90 million to sponsors Sam and Daniel Moon for the Renaissance Dallas at Plano (Texas) Legacy West Hotel; $20.5 million to sponsor David Kenny for the Courtyard by Marriott Lake George (N.Y.); and $20 million to sponsor Naman Hotels for the Hilton Garden Inn Charlotte (N.C.) Waverly.
“These loans reflect the substantial progress we have made throughout 2019; not only have we facilitated a healthy pipeline of opportunities, but at the end of the second quarter, our 2019 originations have already surpassed the $600 million milestone,” Toby Cobb, co-founder and managing partner at 3650 REIT, said in a statement.
