The program to reposition the Property will focus on the development of a new marketing strategy which builds on Prime’s extensive expertise in construction management, development, asset management and leasing. Work has already commenced on rehabilitation of the building’s facade. Designs have been completed for a new building lobby and will commence upon city approvals; at the same time work will also begin on common area and restroom upgrades. Other planned upgrades include new exterior lighting, elevator modernization, a new fire and sprinkler system, window repairs and HVAC upgrades. At loan closing, an initial amount of $21.5 million will be disbursed. The remaining portion of the loan will be disbursed to the borrower for tenant improvements, leasing commissions and renovation costs. The loan will be for three years, interest-only with a one-year extension option.
