SAN FRANCISCO, July 16, 2019 – JLL announces that it has arranged $76.8 million in financing for the development of 1554 Market Street, a 109-unit condominium project located in downtown San Francisco.

JLL worked on behalf of the borrower, Z&L Properties, Inc., to place the five-year, floating-rate construction loan with Barings, on behalf of one of its managed accounts.

1554 Market Street is a fully-entitled project positioned near the intersection of Market Street and Van Ness Avenue directly across from the Van Ness Muni Metro Station in San Francisco’s Hub District. The transit-oriented development’s prime location has earned it a Walk Score® of 99, a Transit Score of 100 and Bike Score of 99 and positions it within eight blocks of more than 400 restaurants and bars. Due for completion in 2021, the property will encompass two 12-story buildings connected by a concrete corridor that will house 109 condominium units situated above a ground-floor lobby and 5,010 square feet of retail space as well as a 28-space subterranean parking garage.

The JLL Capital Markets team representing the borrower included senior director Brandon Roth and senior managing director Charles Halladay.

“The San Francisco condo market continues to be strong with record pricing achieved in the second quarter of 2019,” Roth said. “Lenders recognize that a severe housing shortage combined with employment growth and IPO’s from Uber, Lyft, Pinterest and others will lead to sustained demand from new buyers.”JLL Capital Markets is a full-service global provider of capital solutions for real estate investors and occupiers.
