Regency Capital Partners (RCP) announced today the closing of $71.8 million of non-recourse construction financing for the speculative development of 600 National Avenue, a four story, +/- 150,000 square foot office building located in Mountain View, CA. RCP arranged the $55,000,000 Senior Construction Loan on behalf of National Avenue Partners, LLC through National Real Estate Advisors of Washington D.C. An additional $16,800,000 Mezzanine Construction facility was provided by TDA Investment Group.
The Owner/Developer (National Avenue Partners, LLC) commenced purchasing four contiguous separate parcels, located directly next to a Mountain View Google campus, totalling 4.82 acres in 2012. The Developer was able to achieve over double the original allowable building square footage of the existing vintage-1960’s buildings 65,000 square feet, to an approximately 150,000 square foot Class A Office building plus parking garage currently under construction. The Project is planned to be LEED gold compliant.
The Project will be integrated into the Local Trail System at the back of the Property linking multiple campuses within the area to mass transit opportunities. The Middlefield Station VTA Light Rail Stop is located ½ mile from the Project and the Downtown Mountain View Cal Train Station is minutes away. Additionally, Mountain View’s prestigious Castro Street is approximately one mile from the Project offering a multitude of retail amenities.
Michael Grausz of RCP led the advisory team securing the debt on behalf of National Avenue Partners.
