REAL ESTATE FINANCING AND CAPITAL MARKETS SERVICES

Thompson Coburn has long-standing relationships with many of the major U.S. and international banks and has represented them in loan transactions and related matters throughout the country.

We represent financial entities in all aspects of real estate lending and finance, including construction lending, commercial financing, acquisitions financing and special asset services. We have negotiated loan documents on behalf of our lender clients with respect to office buildings, shopping centers, industrial sites, retail and mixed-use developments, condominium developments, residential and commercial subdivisions and undeveloped land. The firm also has negotiated construction loan packages, loan work-outs and debt restructuring agreements and conducted foreclosure sales on behalf of our lender client base.

Represented the lender in a series of loans totaling $69.1 million for the acquisition and construction of supportive and assisted living facilities in Illinois and Wisconsin. (2015)

Represented the lender in a $28.3 million construction loan for the development of two parcels of prime real estate in downtown Clayton, Missouri. The borrower is developing a $41 million, six-story, 210,000-square-foot-building that would include 120 one- and two-bedroom apartments, 13,500 square feet of street-level retail and 145 below-grade parking spaces. Additionally, the property is part of a CID (Community Improvement District). (2015)

Represented the lender in a $25.2 million construction loan for the development of a building in a high-tech corridor in the City of St. Louis. The loan was secured partially by real estate and TIF revenue generated by a newly constructed retailer located in the same TIF district. (2015)

Represented a developer in the refinancing for a $19 million loan for a multi-tenant industrial facility in Wisconsin. (2015)

Led a transaction involving $9 million in new and modified facilities for the acquisition and development of car dealership and associated offices located in Dickson, Tennessee. The project was unique due to the various loan facilities, which included both real estate and non-real estate as part of the bank’s collateral. (2015)

Represented a bank in a $14.5 million acquisition loan made to two tenants in common who were co-borrowers on the transaction. The loan funded the purchase of two apartment complexes in Cape Girardeau, Missouri. In addition to the acquisition, a large portion of the loan proceeds were held back for capital improvements. (2015)

Led the modification of an existing loan that allowed a loan from a third-party entity to finance certain energy efficient improvements at a midtown St. Louis property in exchange for a tax lien to be implemented through the City of St. Louis. (2015)

Represented the lender in a $19.7 million construction loan for a 225-unit multifamily development located in Sioux City, Iowa.

Complex projects

In a complex three-year matter that involved obtaining a TIF from the City of Chicago, we represented a client in the acquisition of $45 million in loans collateralized by eight retail property sites across the Chicago area and northern Indiana. The transaction included due diligence of all eight properties — including review of title, TIF documentation, developer agreements, and zoning — deed-in-lieu agreements, deed-in-lieu-of-foreclosure, and the sale of three properties.
