Younan Properties Finances Woodfield Corporate Center and Prairie Stone Commons;
Rising Values and Low Interest Rates Fuel Momentum
Chicago IL, March 10, 2015 --- Younan Properties, Inc., a fully integrated, national real estate owner and manager of Class "A" office buildings and retail centers in five major U.S. office markets announced that it successfully completed the refinancing of Woodfield Corporate Center in Schaumberg and Prairie Stone Commons in Hoffman Estates. The new seven-year loans from BBCN Bank were closed on February 11.
According to Zaya Younan, Chairman and CEO, "In 2014, the Chicago suburban markets posted more than one million square feet of absorption. Given the steady improvement and continued low rate environment, we were able to leverage the significant upside in value of these Class "A" properties."
"This financing provides additional resources for ongoing capital improvements as well as funding for new leasing and tenant improvement costs to drive occupancy at the properties," he added.
Younan Properties acquired Woodfield Corporate Center at 300 N. Martingale in August of 2014. The 156,065 square foot, seven-story, Class "A" office building is located in the Schaumburg submarket of suburban Chicago. 300 N. Martingale maintains a prominent location with tollway visibility along 1-290/Route 53. It was developed as part of the Woodfield Corporate Center complex and offers numerous tenant amenities including a deli, meeting room and tenant lounge area, four-story parking deck with an enclosed walkway, as well as onsite management and security.
