Madison Marquette has received a $185 million financing to recapitalize One Light Street, a Class A 800,000-square-foot mixed-use high-rise in Baltimore. Bridge Investment Group secured the loan, one of the largest in the market. The developer broke ground on the 28-story building in January 2017 and secured $169 million in construction financing from two lenders in September 2017. Bridge Investment also participated at the time with a $44 million bridge loan.
Madison Marquette Chief Development/Asset Management Officer Peter Cole and Senior Vice President George Kelly negotiated on behalf of the borrower, while Bridge Investment Group Managing Director Jay Haberman represented the lender in the transaction. Phillips Realty Capital Principal Mark Remington served as advisor in the deal.
