Sonnenblick-Eichner Arranges $47.5M Loan for Historic Mixed-Use Building in Chicago’s Financial District

by Christina Cannon

CHICAGO — Sonnenblick-Eichner Co. has arranged a $47.5 million loan to refinance the office and retail component of a 21-story building at 208 S. LaSalle St. in Chicago. The 1.1 million-square-foot, mixed-use building is located in the financial district. Michael Reschke of The Prime Group Inc. is the property owner. The loan is secured by five floors (13-17) of office space totaling 207,953 square feet and 11,379 square feet of street-level retail space, which is collectively 94 percent leased. The first 12 floors are occupied by a 610-room JW Marriott hotel. Neither the hotel nor the top four office floors were part of the collateral. The seven-year, non-recourse financing was funded by an affiliate of Guggenheim Commercial Real Estate Finance. The loan refinanced a $35 million mortgage that was a part of a $321 million facility Sonnenblick-Eichner Co. arranged for the ownership two years ago. The deal was comprised of four different loans and included first mortgage debt and mezzanine financing. The property, built in 1914 as the headquarters for the Continental and Commercial National Bank, was designed by Daniel Burnham and added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2007.
