The loan refinanced and replaced $42.2 million in previous construction financing provided by EagleBank and Austin-based Endeavor Real Estate Group in 2015. The original construction financing stack—first reported by CO—was arranged by HFF and was comprised of a $32 million, five-year senior construction loan from EagleBank and a $10.2 million mezzanine loan from Endeavor.

“The Hyatt opened… as one of the most well-appointed hospitality properties in Arlington, and ownership has done a tremendous job of ramping up the hotel’s operations,” said Mission Capital’s Jason Parker, who was part of the team that arranged the financing, in prepared remarks. “We ran a competitive process and received a lot of lender interest due to the strength of the location and the sponsorship. We ultimately closed on a high-leverage deal with EagleBank that returned additional capital to the developers.”

Construction on the eight-story, roughly 95,395-square-foot hotel completed in 2016. The 168-key, select-service hotel is located at 2401 Wilson Boulevard in the Court House neighborhood of Arlington, just across the Potomac River from Washington, D.C. The hotel includes a wine bar, a business center and 80 spaces of indoor valet parking.

Schupp Companies owns properties across nearly every asset class throughout Virginia. LodgeWorks owns and operates hotels across the country, including it’s boutique-brand Archer Hotels, with locations in or nearby major markets across the country, including in New York—at 45 West 38th Street in Midtown—and in Florham Park, N.J. and Austin, Texas.
