Quarterly commercial mortgage originations jumped -- led by a spike in hotel originations. Meanwhile, plenty of multifamily properties have recently found financing.

A $3 million loan was issued for a three-story office property in Bernardsville, N.J., Meridian reported. The 20,913-square-foot property secured a 5.86 percent rate over 10 years with five years interest only.

Over in Miami, Fla., 36 of 83 units of the Shamrock Kendall condominium secured financing of $5.8 million, Meridian said. The 5-year loan will be repaid with a 7.125 percent interest rate.

Boston, Mass.-based Tremont Realty Capital announced it funded a senior bridge loan of nearly $56.8 million for the acquisition of Lodi Station and refinance of Lakeland Station, outlet centers in Ohio and Tennessee measuring 310,813 and 323,507 square feet, respectively. The non-recourse, 3-year loan has a LIBOR-based interest rate and provided leverage of 90 percent loan-to-cost. Major tenants in the centers include Gap, Eddie Bauer, Liz Claiborne, Polo, Nautica and Bose.

Over in Rockville Center, N.Y., a 13,500-square-foot office building found financing of nearly $2.3 million through Meridian Capital Group. The building, which houses medical tenants, secured a rate of 4.75 percent over a 10-year term, according to an announcement.

New York-based Meridian also said it arranged a $2.4 million loan for the purchase of The Ariana Building, a 27,400-square-foot, flex retail/storage facility in Sunrise, Fla. 5365 LLC will repay the loan at a rate of 6.6 percent over a 5-year non-recourse term through a commercial bank.

Among multifamily deals, the Southgate Garden Apartments secured $2.6 million mortgage arranged by Meridian. The 10-year loan for the 76-unit complex in Thomasville, N.C., carries a rate of 5.94 percent, a news release indicated.

Associated Estates Realty Corp. received a fixed-rate refinance loan of over $9.2 million secured by the Residence at White River. Red Mortgage Capital Inc. said it provided the 7-year interest only loan approved by Fannie Mae. The property has 228 units across 10 two-and three-story buildings located in Indianapolis, Ind.

The Parkside Village, a 136-unit Class A apartment complex in Clayton, N.C., secured a $9.4 million loan at an interest rate of 6.28 percent over a 10-year term with a 5-year interest only period, Meridian said.

Columbus, Ohio-based Red Mortgage said it provided another 7-year, fixed-rate interest only loan for Associated Estates, but this one was for $10.8 million secured by the Spring Valley Apartments. The two-story apartment property in Farmington, Mich., consists of 17 buildings with 224 units.

Prudential Mortgage Capital Co. closed a $25.8 million refinance loan for the Fisher Building, a high-rise apartment complex in Chicago, Ill. The building, an historical landmark with 184 units, secured the 10-year, fixed-rate loan approved by Fannie, the commercial arm of New Jersey-based Prudential Financial Inc. announced.

The 10-year, fixed-rate loan has a 30-year amortization schedule. The property's 327 apartment units are spread throughout 28 two-story buildings, according to an announcement.

Meanwhile, Largo said it arranged a $49.8 million first mortgage secured by a portfolio of multifamily and office properties and an art gallery in Rochester, N.Y. The 10-year, fixed-rate loan amortizes over 30 years. The portfolio consists of Artisan Works, Imperial Manor Apartments, Normandie Apartments, Mt. Read Business Center and another office building.

The first mortgage has terms of five years interest only and amortization over a 25-year period, according to Largo, a Getzville, N.Y.-based commercial lender.

Despite a general repricing of risk, overall commercial mortgage originations jumped 40 percent in the second quarter from a year earlier, the Mortgage Bankers Association reported Wednesday. The jump was led by an 330 percent increase in hotel financing and conduit loans for commercial mortgage-backed securities. Commercial production was up 26 percent from the first quarter.

"A number of large deals helped boost commercial/multifamily origination volumes in the second quarter," an MBA executive said in the statement.

Multifamily originations were 18 percent higher than the second quarter 2006, the report said.
