2100 Monroe Ave. • Memphis, TN 38104

Permit Cost: $12 million

Permit Date: Applied June 2012

Owner: City of Memphis

Architect: LRK Inc.

Details: The city of Memphis has filed a $12 million building permit application with the city-county Office of Construction Code Enforcement for the three-story Overton Square parking garage being built in conjunction with Loeb Properties Inc.’s revitalization of the square.

The 435-space garage, which will be at the northeast corner of Monroe Avenue and Florence Street, will contain a water-detention facility underneath to alleviate rain flooding throughout the Lick Creek basin. LRK Inc. is the architect of record for the project. Construction is expected to begin in July and last about a year.

Loeb’s is developing the square into a “Heart of the Arts” area that builds on the success of current theater tenants while also relocating black repertory theater company Hattiloo Theatre from Marshall Avenue to the south side of the square.

The $35 million project encompasses about 120,000 square feet in redevelopment and new buildings, $19.2 million of which Loeb will provide. The city was asked to contribute $16 million for infrastructure, including the garage, streetscapes, traffic-related expenses and Hattiloo’s new site.

The city council approved the request for funding in December.

2059 Vollintine Ave.
Memphis, TN 38107

Sale Amount: $2.9 million

Sale Date: March 9, 2012

Buyer: LBUBS 2002-C4 Cabana Circle LLC

Seller: Harris P. Quinn, on behalf of lender LBUBS 2002-C4 Cabana Circle LLC

Details: The 488-unit University Cabana Apartments in North Memphis has been bought back by its most recent lender, an affiliate of Miami-based loan servicer LNR Partners LLC, after the property went into foreclosure last year.

LBUBS 2002-C4 Cabana Circle LLC’s $2.9 million buyback occurred this spring, but documents weren’t filed with the Shelby County Register of Deeds until June.

University Cabana, a Class C complex built in 1965, is on 26 acres at 2059 Vollintine Ave., north of Vollintine Avenue and east of University Street in Vollentine Park subdivision. It uses the address 2059 N. Cabana Circle.

The Shelby County Assessor of Property’s 2012 appraisal is $4.4 million, unchanged from the property’s 2011 appraisal.

The foreclosure process began after owner University Apartment Associates LLC defaulted on 2002 loan for $7 million through UBS Warburg Real Estate Investments Inc., according to the notice. That loan was transferred three times, most recently in December to LNR’s LBUBS affiliate. Foreclosure notices ran in The Daily News in January and February, but the sale was postponed to the next month.

LNR Partners is a subsidiary of LNR Property LLC, the world’s largest commercial mortgage special servicer. The company has been involved in a number of high-dollar property acquisitions and dispositions in the Memphis area.
