Privately held hospitality developer SBE, along with its partners Yucaipa and Cain Hoy, has successfully refinanced its $422 million debt facility secured by the Hudson Hotel in New York City, and the Delano South Beach Hotel, in Miami Beach, Fla.
The new $425 million non-recourse facility consists of a $280 million mortgage and a $145 million junior mezzanine loan, both maturing on February 9, 2020 with two one-year extension options.
The loan was provided by Column Financial, a Credit Suisse Company and Security Benefit Corporation.
