San Francisco  – Cohen Financial, a national real estate capital services firm, today announced that it has secured a $4 million bridge loan for an industrial warehouse facility in Alameda, California. The more than 251,000 square foot facility is fully-leased.

Paul Schroeder, a Managing Director in Cohen Financial’s San Francisco office, secured the loan.  The lender is Bolour Associates, a finance company.  The borrower is a local commercial real estate developer who has owned the property since the mid 1970’s.  

“The borrower needed a bridge loan to facilitate the sale and redevelopment of the property,” said Mr. Schroeder. “Age and historical status were two issues that proved difficult to overcome.  However, we worked with the lender who became comfortable with the relative low loan-to-value request and significant upside of the redevelopment of the more than nine acre site.”
