The loans are representative of Invesco’s commercial real estate lending business and will fund various initiatives such as value-add renovations, recapitalization, lease-up bridge, and limited development, across Class A assets within the multifamily, office and industrial sectors.

A mezzanine loan as part of the refinancing, inclusive of future fundings for capital expenditures and leasing costs, of 655 Montgomery, a 263,000 square foot Class A office building in San Francisco.

A senior loan to finance the acquisition and lease-up of a newly constructed 230-unit multifamily project known as the Haven at Westheimer in Houston, Texas.

Charlie Rose, Senior Director, comments: "As we expand Invesco’s footprint as a nimble, creative lender, these recent closings are representative of our capabilities in the bridge lending space. Invesco’s dedicated team has ‘boots-on-the-ground’ and deep relationships nationally, which collectively allow us to structure unique bridge financing solutions for borrowers seeking responsive and flexible debt capital."

"Invesco Real Estate has committed to further scaling its bridge lending platform as a complement to its existing national footprint and established infrastructure," says Bert Crouch, Managing Director. "These originations demonstrate our ability to source, structure and close both senior and subordinate loans across all commercial real estate sectors and regions. Each financing adheres to Invesco’s ‘credit-over-yield’ approach to real estate lending, focusing on liquid asset classes and markets, moderate leverage, competitive pricing, rigorous structure and alignment with institutional borrowers."

Invesco Real Estate has more than 30 years of experience in the commercial real estate sector and has executed on credit-related transactions totaling more than $4.2 billion since the Global Financial Crisis.
