OAKLAND, CALIFORNIA (June 28, 2019) – Tom Wight, Vice President of NorthMarq’s San Francisco regional office, arranged $7 million in non-recourse senior debt to refinance 1441 Franklin Street, a 20,753 sq. ft. creative office building in downtown Oakland. The competitively priced floating-rate loan was structured with a three year initial term plus extension options, providing the sponsor ample time to complete lease-up of the property.

“The quality and quantity of competitive quotes we received is a testament to the improved sentiment toward the Oakland market,” said Wight.

The sponsor, Citrine Advisors, renovated this 1925-vintage building with new HVAC, roof, electrical, plumbing, lighting, bathrooms, private offices, lobby, and elevator. The 4,500 – 5,000 sq. ft. floorplans appeal to local technology startups and financial service businesses seeking plug-and-play creative office space. The building is ideally located on the same block as the entrance to the City Center Bart station.
