PORTLAND, OR -- (Marketwired) -- 08/08/14 -- CrowdStreet, a crowdfunding marketplace connecting accredited investors with institutional-grade real estate investments, today announced it has listed a mezzanine financing for 30 Knightsbridge Road, a four-building class B+ office complex in Piscataway, N.J., sponsored by EverWest Real Estate Partners, a privately held Denver-based real estate investment and operating company.
By listing on CrowdStreet, EverWest is targeting a raise of $1.7 million as part of its $6 million mezzanine financing. The target annual cash yield to investors is 10.5 percent. The investment opportunity in 30 Knightsbridge offers attractive risk-adjusted returns, as the total debt position through the mezzanine loan of $92 per square foot is well covered by the current property value of $119 per square foot.
"CrowdStreet is excited to work with EverWest and provide access for investors to participate in the 30 Knightsbridge mezzanine loan," said Tore Steen, CrowdStreet's CEO. "With the property's strong tenant base, proximity to major transportation routes and New York City, as well as advanced infrastructure and amenities, we believe that 30 Knightsbridge is a great example of the institutional-grade deals we are listing on the CrowdStreet marketplace."
30 Knightsbridge, which is valued at $82 million, is comprised of 686,316 square feet of commercial office space. Currently 91 percent of the four-building property is leased to nine tenants, including AT&T Corp., QualCare Inc., AECOM Technology Corp., Cablevision and Paychex North America Inc. Keystone Property Group acquired the property in June 2014 as part of $230 million purchase of a 2.3 million square foot, 12 building office portfolio owned by Mack-Cali Realty Corporation.
"We chose to post 30 Knightsbridge on the CrowdStreet platform because they focus on and understand institutional-grade commercial real estate," said Thomas Ling, director at EverWest Real Estate Partners. "The CrowdStreet business model provides a modern approach to online capital formation that complements our traditional fundraising process. The senior management team at EverWest has collectively invested over $30 billion across the United States and we are confident that 30 Knightsbridge presents an attractive opportunity for investors."
CrowdStreet recently closed a large fundraising effort on behalf of Mainstreet, the nation's largest and most innovative developer of short-stay rehabilitation and long-term care properties, in May, raising $1.6 million in just four weeks, one of the largest raises for a real estate crowdfunding transaction.
CrowdStreet provides accredited investors with unique access to commercial real estate investment opportunities through an intuitively designed portal that makes it easy to find opportunities, manage offers, track investment performance and build a commercial real estate portfolio -- all at no cost to the investor. The CrowdStreet marketplace allows investors to search and select pre-screened commercial real estate opportunities by product type, geographic region or risk allocation.

With its cloud-based fundraising and investor relationship management platform, CrowdStreet offers real estate operators, funds and private equity companies an online vehicle to raise capital and manage relationships with new and existing investors more efficiently and cost effectively.

If there is anything we have learned by now, is that every business paves their own unique path for releasing software- every pipeline, implementation and practices are a bit different, and DevOps comes in all shapes and sizes. Software delivery practices are often comprised of set of several complementing (or even competing) methodologies – such as leveraging Agile, DevOps and even a mix of ITIL, to create the combination that’s most suitable for your organization and that maximize your busines...

In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene.
In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists will dis...

Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited.

See storage differently! Storage performance problems have only gotten worse and harder to solve as applications have become largely virtualized and moved to a cloud-based infrastructure. Storage performance in a virtualized environment is not just about IOPS, it is about how well that potential performance is guaranteed to individual VMs for these apps as the number of VMs keep going up real time.
