PMZ Realty Capital LLC Obtains $81.5 Million Floating Rate Loan for Embassy Suites Atlanta


PMZ Realty Capital LLC, a national boutique real estate investment-banking firm focused on creating advantageous capital structures for their clients, has obtained a $81.5 floating rate loan for the Embassy Suites Atlanta-at Centennial Olympic Park, a 321 suite hotel featuring over 16,000 sq ft in meeting space. The property will become the third loan PMZ Realty Capital LLC has closed for hotel owners, Legacy Property Group, in the last six months.

“This particular financing opportunity was interesting for PMZ due to the nature of the loan. We secured a floating rate loan versus a fixed rate loan so the owners, Legacy Property Group, could invest in substantial property improvement plans (PIP) and an upgrade of the property over the next 12 months with the flexibility that a floating rate loan allows for renovations and future fundings,” said Peter Berk, President, PMZ Realty Capital-Hotel Finance Group. “We consider this to be a major victory due to the sheer size of the loan and the improvements that will be made to the property benefitting the vibrant city of Atlanta.”

“Thanks to PMZ, we were able to retire our existing debt and receive favorable financing terms that will provide monies for the immediate renovation of the hotel,” commented David Martin, Founder and President, Legacy Property Group. “As a longtime supporter of Atlanta and the resurgence of their downtown market and the Luckie Marietta District, it’s especially significant to continue to revitalize this area. This upgrade helps us continue down that path and invest in the future of the city.”

The Embassy Suites Atlanta- at Centennial Olympic Park is located in downtown Atlanta, 8 miles from the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. The contemporary style hotel has 321 two-bedroom suites, 16,000 sq ft of meeting space and a relaxing outdoor pool and spa. It is adjacent to Georgia Aquarium and the World of Coca-Cola in the Luckie Marietta District.
