Office Distress Still Low, But Lease Expirations, Maturing Loans Loom Large

By Miriam Hall

The coronavirus pandemic has not yet caused major distress for office owners, but the billions of loans out on properties with leases in their final stretch show just how much is at risk in the country’s priciest office markets.

Borrowers of about $3.3B in commercial mortgage-backed securities debt across 125 loans and 245 properties have requested forbearances so far, according to a joint Trepp and Compstak report released this month.

Roughly $27.7B of the $145B CMBS office loans Trepp tracks are set to mature by 2022. What’s more, nearly 35% of the total loan pool, or $50B, has exposure to a major tenant with a lease that will expire by the end of 2022, when many experts predict the economy will still be healing.

Good News for PPP Borrowers: Forgiveness Just Got Easier

For NAR members who borrowed $50,000 or less through the Paycheck Protection Program, it is now easier to receive automatic loan forgiveness. These smaller loans now require less documentation and fewer calculations than the previous process. The U.S. Small Business Administration and the Treasury Department announced the simplified process late last week.

Many NAR members who took PPP loans will benefit, says Shannon McGahn, NAR’s chief advocacy officer. “This new application (SBA Form 3508S) is one-and-a-half pages long, which is about as good as it gets for a government program and half the length of the previous EZ Application,” she says.

One in five NAR members report having taken out a PPP loan since the program was created, according to a recent NAR survey. NAR continues to actively encourage Congress, in any future COVID relief bill, to forgive loans of less than $150,000. 

See NAR’s Washington Report for details.

CBJ Heavy Hitters Finalists Announced

By Jen Wilson

The development boom in the greater Charlotte region continues to show little sign of slowing, even months after the arrival of the Covid-19 pandemic in early 2020. While uncertainty remains about what the future holds for commercial real estate and development after this year’s upheaval of the business world, for now, cranes are still moving all over town.

The Charlotte Business Journal’s Heavy Hitters Commercial Real Estate Awards program highlights the region’s best developments of the past year. Projects considered for this recognition were substantially completed between July 1, 2019, and June 30, 2020.

Two dozen projects have been chosen as finalists, representing a variety of uses.

Winners will be revealed across 10 categories — ranging from office developments and space buildouts to multifamily housing, entertainment and hospitality projects, retail and health-care facilities — during a virtual event on Oct. 15.
