Mag Mile secures loan for MT facility


Mag Mile Capital senior vice president Mac Dobson completed a $3.8 million non-recourse CMBS loan for a 91,000 square foot self storage facility in Kalispell, Montana.

The 10-year loan replaced a high-leverage SBA loan that was used to acquire the facility along with a secondary seller note. The borrower, Batavia Rentals, LLC, acquired the property for $3.6 million in 2016 with less than 5 percent down at closing. After three years, the owners have increased NOI through rent increases and higher occupancy, allowing Mag Mile Capital to arrange a significantly lower, fixed-rate loan and provide more than $200,000 in cash-out.

Located at 190 Batavia Lane, the property has 446 units.

Chicago-based Mag Mile Capital is a full-service, commercial real estate mortgage and investment banking firm.

Prototype design spurs commissions


HPI Horne Storage commissioned DALLENBACH-COLE ARCHITECTURE to create a prototype Class A storage facility for different locations, site conditions, and branding. DALLENBACH-COLE designed three buildings in San Antonio varying from flat sites to projects with steep slopes and daylight basement conditions. Each building carried similar materials, common building elements, and dynamic aesthetics which enabled flexibility in branding by different management companies. 

The architectural design of the facilities led to five additional commissions for DALLENBCH-COLE ARCHITECTURE in San Antonio, Houston, and Las Vegas.
