Newmark, on behalf of InterPark Holdings, has placed a $565 million, five-year loan secured by a portfolio of 26 cross-collateralized parking facilities in nine U.S. cities, including Chicago, Philadelphia, St. Louis and Boston.
Executive Managing Director Joel Simmons of Newmark’s Debt and Structured Finance Group arranged the financing. The loan was placed with Apollo Global Management on behalf of the company’s externally managed mortgage REIT, Apollo Commercial Real Estate Finance Inc. and Apollo’s insurance platform.
