CBRE Hotels Arranges $56 Million Loan for Sheraton Fort Worth Downtown Hotel in Fort Worth, TX

Fort Worth, Texas – October 17, 2016—CBRE Hotels announced that it has arranged a $56 million loan for the refinance of the 429-room Sheraton Fort Worth Hotel in Fort Worth, Texas. 

Marc Sallette and Olga Lepow with CBRE Hotels’ Debt & Structured Finance team in Houston secured the loan on behalf of the borrower, Presidio Companies. The three-year, fixed- and floating-rate loan included $21 million in mezzanine capital. Macquarie Group served as the senior lender and Torchlight Investors served as the mezzanine lender. 

“Our team executed a highly specialized loan process for a property that has a really interesting story to tell,” Mr. Sallette said. “After the original lender fell through, we had difficulty identifying a new lender willing to fund the entire loan. Ultimately, we were able to secure a senior lender and an additional lender who was willing to provide mezzanine financing.” 

Located at 1701 Commerce Street, The Sheraton Fort Worth features 429 accommodations—custom-designed by international hotel design firm The Gettys Group—which serve the Dallas–Fort-Worth area. The property is in proximity to the Fort Worth Convention Center and offers distinct flexibility to accommodate corporate meetings, conventions and special events taking place in downtown Fort Worth.
