March 24, 2016 – Holliday Fenoglio Fowler, L.P. (HFF) announced today that it has secured $49.85 million in first lien construction financing for the development of the 204-room Residence Inn by Marriott Silicon Valley in the San Francisco Bay Area community of San Carlos, California.
HFF worked on behalf of the borrower, R.D. Olson Development, to secure the three-year, floating-rate loan with two one-year extensions through a diversified financial services company. Loan proceeds will be used to develop the hotel.
The four-story, select-service hotel will feature 1,500 square feet of meeting space, a convenience market, fitness center, outdoor pool and spa, sport court and outdoor patio with fire pit. The hotel will be completed in 2017. Located in San Carlos, an affluent Silicon Valley suburb halfway between San Francisco and San Jose, the hotel will sit on a 3.92-acre site at the northeast corner of Industrial Road and East San Carlos Avenue. Highway 101 runs along the eastern boarder of the site, which is next to San Carlos Airport and near some of the world’s largest tech companies.
The HFF debt placement team representing the developer was led by managing director James Fowler.
“R.D. Olson Development, a leading owner and developer of hotels, has earned a reputation for delivering high-quality projects and creating immense value,” Fowler said. “The proposed quality of finish and amenities for the hotel, combined with its superb location and excellent brand in Marriott, will certainly carry on that tradition of excellence.”
