Thorofare Capital Provides $17M Loan to Refinance Historic Hotel in Downtown Miami
MIAMI — Thorofare Capital has provided a $17 million loan to Langford Partners LLC to help stabilize The Langford Hotel, a building constructed in 1926 and added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1989. It was originally a bank and has housed several banks, an insurance company and other commercial entities over the years. Langford Partners, an affiliate of Stambul USA, purchased the building in 2013, and in 2016, opened it as a 126-room boutique hotel. Thorofare provided the sponsor with a two-year, interest-only bridge loan to refinance an existing construction loan, and repatriate preferred equity through an “earn-out” facility based on hotel performance. Neil Freeman and Brandon Perdeck of Chicago-based Aries Capital LLC arranged the financing.
