SEATTLE — CBRE, on behalf of Swift Real Estate Partners, has placed $32.5 million in financing for 425 Pontius, an office building located in Seattle’s South Lake Union neighborhood. The borrower acquired the property in March 2022.
Swift Real Estate Partners will use the financing for the acquisition and renovation of the four-story, 75,000-square-foot office building. The property features four stories of office space, surface parking and two levels of underground parking. The building was originally constructed in 1982 and underwent a lobby renovation in 2018. Swift plans to reposition the asset into creative office space and renovate the exterior and make cosmetic upgrades to the lobby, elevators and common areas.
Mike Walker and Brad Zampa of CBRE’s San Francisco office, alongside Jeff Henderson in the Seattle office, arranged the four-year, floating-rate loan through an undisclosed West Coast-based bank. Tom Pehl and Charles Safley of CBRE’s Pacific Northwest-based capital markets team advised the seller, a local private partnership, in the sale of the property in March.
