2240 Democrat Road • Memphis, TN 38132

Sale Date: July 22, 2011

Buyer: Alpha Hospitality Ventures LLC

Seller: Lloyd C. Kirkland, as substitute trustee

Loan Amount: $4 million

Loan Date: Aug. 2, 2011

Maturity Date: n/a

Lender: Cecil Bank

Details: New Jersey-based Alpha Hospitality Ventures LLC has bought Memphis Airport Hotel & Conference Center property at 2240 Democrat Road for $4.4 million at a substitute trustee’s – or foreclosure – sale. The deal closed July 22. The seller was Lloyd C. Kirkland, appointed in June as substitute trustee.

Memphis Airport Hotel & Conference Center is about 270,000 square feet, according to the Shelby County Assessor of Property, whose 2011 appraisal is $8.1 million.

Built in 1974, it has 374 rooms plus 33,000 square feet of meeting space. It is on 7.6 acres in Nonconnah Corporate Center. The parcel is on the northeast corner of Nonconnah Boulevard and Democrat Road, with a small portion of the easternmost part of the property fronting Airways Boulevard.

The purchase was financed with an open-end mortgage of about $4 million through Cecil Bank.

The property went into foreclosure because Riya Parikh Memphis LLC, which bought the property for $8.3 million in May 2008, defaulted on a $12.8 million loan through PNC Bank NA.

8037 Waterford Circle
Memphis, TN 38125
Sale Amount: $18.2 million

Sale Date: May 11, 2011

Buyer: GECMC 2006-C1 Waterford Circle LLC

Seller: Harris P. Quinn, substitute trustee

Details: Waterford Place Apartments at 8037 Waterford Circle in Southeast Shelby County’s 38125 ZIP code has sold for $18.2 million in a substitute trustee’s sale following a foreclosure.

The complex sold May 11 but the sale document wasn’t recorded by the Shelby County Register of Deeds until last week.

GECMC 2006-C1 Waterford Circle LLC, which is listed as care of Miami Beach, Fla.-based LNR Partners LLC, bought the complex from Harris P. Quinn of Prochaska Thompson Quinn & Ferraro PC, acting as substitute trustee.

The Class A multifamily property, which the Shelby County Assessor of Property lists at 4280 Hacks Cross Road, is a 320-unit complex built in 2001 on 27.9 acres in Buckingham Farms Planned Development. The west side of the complex fronts the east side of Hacks Cross Road, and the northeast side of the complex fronts Tenn. 385. The assessor’s 2011 appraisal is $21.9 million.

The property was foreclosed after borrowers Empirian Waterford LLC, which held a 75 percent interest in the property, and Flushing Waterford LLC, which held the remaining 25 percent, defaulted on a $54.6 million loan through Deutsche Banc Mortgage Capital LLC dated Feb. 28, 2006. That loan was set to mature April 1. 2016.

Empirian and Flushing bought the complex a year earlier for $27.5 million.

The loan was assigned five times, with the last assignment being in June 2010 to GECMC 2006-C1 Waterford Circle LLC, the same entity – care of LNR Partners – that bought the property out of foreclosure.
