Chicago, IL (10/12/2018)

NKF Capital Markets has successfully arranged a $23,000,000 refinancing loan for Hewing Hotel in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Executive Managing Director Ben Greazel of NKF's Chicago Capital Markets group originated the four-year, non-course loan on behalf of the borrower, an experienced sponsor with a long track record of success. Greazel secured the financing with Chicago based Alliant Credit Union.

Hewing Hotel, which opened in 2016, was co-developed by Chicago-based Aparium Hotel Group who also owns and manages the hotel. Located at 300 N. Washington Avenue, Hewing Hotel is the #1 rated hotel in the mid-west by Conde Nast Traveler. The century-old brick-and-timber warehouse in Minneapolis's historic North Loop neighborhood has been reshaped into a unique, 124-room and 14-suite hotel featuring original pine timber beams; local artwork; a fitness center; rooftop bar, spa pool and sauna and a street level, flagship restuaurant, Tullibee.

"Hewing Hotel's unique design combined with Aparium's expertise at hospitality management resulted in a tremendous opening success that made this financing possible," said Greazel.
