Mag Mile Capital Finalizes $4 Million Loan for Self-Storage Renovation Project in Heart of Memphis

MEMPHIS, Tenn.June 30, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Mag Mile Capital announced that Matt Weilgus, SVP and Head of Originations, successfully completed a $4 million loan to secure funds needed to purchase and renovate an old Sears store into a modern 854-unit, 83,040 sq. ft. self-storage facility. Branded as and managed by Public Storage, the facility is located in the first enclosed mall in the mid-South and is located just minutes from the airport and downtown Memphis. Mag Mile Capital is a boutique firm that offers preferred access nationwide to high-leverage, non-recourse, commercial real estate bridge loans and permanent mortgages with cash out for hotels, self-storage, multifamily, industrial, retail, office, and other commercial real estate property.

“Global Storage Partners reached out to us months ago with the plan for a new storage facility, and we’ve been working on this since then,” said Matt Weilgus. “It is a complicated deal, considering the plans to transform this space from a retail store to a facility with individual storage units. But we were able to get the borrower team a competitive rate with terrific flexibility and recourse burn-off. It’s the ideal loan for this type of project and we’re always very happy to help a great client get exactly what they need.”
