Carlton Taps Balance Sheet Lenders For Non-Recourse Construction and Transitional Loans

March 6, 2018

Contrary to market perception, there is a plethora of balance sheet money looking to provide non-recourse financing for construction, renovation and transitional projects.

Furthermore, given that it is the beginning of the year, lenders are anxious to put money out.  We have closed more than $2 billion of transitional and construction equity and debt transactions loans within the last twelve months and have significant relationships with not commonly known domestic and international senior and mezzanine loan sources who will provide you with the best possible terms for your next ground-up and/or renovation project.
