CIM’s Debt Strategy focuses on originating and managing real estate loans for residential, retail, office and hotel projects located primarily in CIM’s Qualified Communities throughout the U.S. and is supported by the company’s 20-year track record as a debt investor and large-scale borrower. CIM typically targets loan types that it believes are currently underserved by existing lenders such as limited and/or non-recourse junior and senior construction loans, and limited and/or non-recourse junior and senior acquisition, bridge or repositioning loans.
An example of a CIM debt investment is the origination of a senior loan and a mezzanine loan portfolio to fund the acquisition and repositioning of four retail and office properties in Miami’s transforming Design District and the Wynwood neighborhood. CIM retained the mezzanine loan. The properties include: a well-established three-story retail and office property with 33,800 square feet of street level retail; a newly-redeveloped retail property with 22,200 square feet of street level retail; and a 13,775-square-foot development site, with a 5,500-square-foot revenue-generating retail building. These funds will be used to renovate or redevelop existing structures, improve leasing, and predevelopment activities for a new five-story office and retail mixed-use project on the development site.
