Customer Closes on Commercial Property in Birmingham, Alabama

Birmingham, Alabama has been witnessing a resurgence in the last decade across multiple industries including food and beverage, hospitality, and entertainment thanks to the redevelopment of several regions throughout the metro area. Knowing just how well one could prosper in the heart of Birmingham, our borrowers set out to purchase a building downtown next to a thriving nightlife scene for the purpose of reopening the pre-existing restaurant along with plans for upgrades that would appeal to the already established customer base. 

Our borrowers closed on the purchase of the 795 square foot commercial property in Birmingham, Alabama in November of 2023 with a requested loan amount of $650,000.00. The LTV with the deal was 61%. In addition to the purchase of the current restaurant located at the property, loan proceeds will also be used to fund renovations such as cosmetic upgrades and a new HVAC system. In order to get this deal locked in and fully fund the improvements, we needed to get creative and was able to have additional liens placed on two other buildings owned by one of the guarantors - both located in the Birmingham area. 

"Working with the borrowers, Justin and Eric, was a pleasure. Seeing firsthand the passion they have for this project and the city of Birmingham was an inspiration," says David Runge, Business Development Manager for Commercial Capital BIDCO. Jeff Luker, Commercial Capital BIDCO VP and COO, echoed similar sentiments stating, "Seeing the revitalization of key cities across the country is part of the 'why' for what we do. We love being at the core of these investors' successes and seeing their goals align."
