Walker & Dunlop Inc. has arranged a $9.7 million loan for the refinancing of Portage Park in Chicago. Formerly a bank building, the mixed-use property now incorporates office and retail space. Situated on seven acres, the property features 60,500 square feet of rentable space and a 180-space parking lot. Tenants include Binny’s Beverage Depot, Retro Fitness and Immigration Lawyers PC. A portion of the vacant space is a historic theater that was formerly home to the Northwest Chicago Film Society, and will be preserved as a performing arts facility. Luke Erlandson, Jeff Robbins and Matt Ewig arranged the 10-year loan, which features a 30-year amortization schedule. Loan proceeds will be used to pay off an existing construction loan. Cui Properties was the borrower.
