Mag Mile Completes Loan for Crowne Plaza in North Carolina
Mag Mile Capital principal/CEO Rushi Shah and VP Prabhat Jayara have completed a $26.2-million non-recourse, 10-year CMBS loan on behalf of Hulsing Hotels, for the Crowne Plaza located at 1 Resort Dr. in Asheville, NC. The Crowne Plaza has 272 rooms and meeting space. The property was recently partially renovated by the borrower to create value, which enabled the loan to be closed despite the borrower’s low basis owing to previously purchasing the asset at a discount. The $26.2-million loan was closed with significant cash out, a 30-year amortization and a 4.1% interest rate.
