3120 Harvard Ave East (Seattle 98102) is a mixed use development project located in the Eastlake neighborhood of Seattle. There will be 2 commercial units and 15-16 residential units (Studios, 1 and 2 bed units). It is located approximately one quarter mile from the University of Washington. Currently the lot is vacant. There will be approximately 3000 square feet of commercial space and approximately 10,000 square feet of residential space.
The project had a Master Use Permit (City of Seattle) that has expired. There are 3 distinct advantages for the project to be permitted under the new zoning requirements.
1. The project is located in a “Frequent Transit” hub. This means, for the residential units, that parking is not required. This space that was used for parking will allow for 3 additional units. I will still provide parking for the commercial space as well as some for rent for the tenants.
2. The project is also in the Multifamily Tax Exempt zone (MFTE). This allows for an exemption on the Property Taxes for the residential portion of the building for 12 years.
3. The project sits in an overlay district. This means that the project will be pushed to the head of the line for permitting.
My plan is to take most of what was done during the previous MUP process and add in the new units and reconfigure some other units. However, one difference is that I would utilize a modular (factory built) construction method for the residential portion. I will use the services of Greenfab and their factory partner to facilitate that process. This will provide us some advantages:
1. Reduces the build time to 7-9 months. This allows for less disruption to the neighborhood, reduced carrying costs for the loan and a greater control of the build process.
2. This project will obtain LEED Platinum status. This will allow for a more efficient building.

Will you pllease send me more info so that I may better help you. 

Chris were you able to get funding for your project? 

It is our goal to offer you a quick, transparent and professional experience along with the most efficient service to fund your project.  We provide 100% of borrower’s capital request in the form of debt, equity or a combination and allow all documented expense paid by the borrower to be stacked on top of the request funds.  We can offer a moratorium on payments until the project is stabilized and cash flowing if the timeline to completion is reasonable.  (Determined on a case-by-case basis)


To start we need a mutual NDA completed, executed and returned by all parties to the project.  Additionally, once we know the sector of the funding request i.e. Energy, Technology, Mining, Real Estate or Business we will provide a questionnaire that must be answered in detail and return which helps to access risk factors and determine our interest.   We are fully transparent and provide all the information for principal to make an intelligent decision on doing business with us.  If the project has merit with strong principal, a very good plan, the principal has liquidity to support the project until funding and are honest and cooperative we can get them through our in-house underwriting to funding.  Our rates based on the following indexes: Libor, Bond rate, 10-year Treasury or Prime depending on the project with terms of 3, 5, 7, 10 , 15 or 20 years.


Required Documentation: (for submission)

The following documents will be necessary to successfully underwrite and fund your project:

  • Business Plan or Executive Summary with actual or proforma income statements 3 -5 years
  • Balance Sheet/Financial Statement/Cash Flow/P & L with YTD less than 90 days old (if applicable)
  • Copy of Appraisal or other valuation (if available)
  • Expanded Resumes of all principals
  • Line Item Detailed Use of Funds for short-term and long-term projections
  • Proof of funds spent to date in the project and 2 month bank statements showing reserves
  • Executed fee agreement


We will need the principal to show proof of funds invested to date in the project (if applicable), liquidity (cash in hand) to pay for third party expenses which includes a site visit, a need and necessity study (mini feasibility )along with legal and due diligence.  They will receive an expression of interest in writing from the lender along with lender contact and documentation for their due diligence.  My job is to get you through our in-house underwriting and to funding!  We believe that relationship is critical if we are to be successful with our business venture and without a good relationship we will not be a good financial partner. 


(The following remark is not intended to offend but stated because of so many request from those who believe that all cost can be paid from closing proceeds):

 “If there are no funds available to cover project cost and principals expects the lender to pay the necessary cost to determine if the project is lendable, close and fund the project and get their expenses from the loan proceeds then no one I know of can help you.”   I have 27 years experience in this industry and have never seen that happen with lenders in the US, Western Europe or anywhere else.
