Chicago – Cohen Financial, a national real estate capital services firm, today announced that it has arranged the refinancing of a one story with mezzanine property that contains more than 92,000 square-feet in Northbrook, Illinois. The multi-tenant industrial flex property also features parking for 120 cars and is situated on a four acre site. The property has been consistently well leased over the years. FE Moran Company is a major tenant.

Michael Grant, Director of Cohen Financial in the Chicago office, secured the $2.425 million 15-year, fully amortized fixed-rate loan. The financing was provided by Nuveen Asset Management for whom Cohen Financial acts as a loan correspondent. The borrower is a local partnership lead by Jeff Tideman, principal of the Tideman Company. The transaction closed on August 12, 2013.

“Flex buildings are more popular among lenders than they use to be,” said Mr. Grant. “This part owner-occupied, part flex building with approximately 30 percent finished office space appeals to a select niche of tenants who are looking for office and warehouse space.”

Cohen Financial’s Loan Administration platform is servicing the transaction.
