Byline Bank’s Commercial Real Estate Group (BCREG) has closed on a loan for the construction of a 100,000-sq-ft industrial building in Tampa, Florida. The speculative development will deliver much-needed Class A industrial space to the airport submarket. The borrower is a joint venture between Stonemont Financial Group and PCCP.

This loan will be the first direct commitment between Byline and Stonemont, and the firms are excited to establish a meaningful partnership moving forward. The loan will assist in the ground-up development of a 32-foot clear, rear-load industrial building in an infill location in the airport submarket of Tampa. The thoughtfully designed building can house either a single tenant or multiple tenants, divisible down to 33,000-sq-ft to meet significant demand for small-bay industrial space. The location provides easy access to the airport and the rapidly growing Tampa metropolitan area.

“Byline has been working to establish a direct relationship with Stonemont for several years, and this infill, Class A industrial development project is a great starting point for what we expect to be a long-term and significant relationship,” said Matt Robertson, Senior Vice President for Byline’s Commercial Real Estate Group. “We are excited to support this transaction while continuing our focus on lending to best-in-class sponsors on a national basis.”

“We are excited to establish a lending relationship with Byline Bank,” said Travis DeBee, Senior Vice President, Capital Markets, for Stonemont Financial Group. “Matt and his team worked quickly from start to finish to put together an attractive financing package in a difficult lending environment. We look forward to expanding the relationship with Byline, who has a sophisticated team and an impressive national lending program.”

Byline was represented in this transaction by the law firm Blank Rome and Stonemont was represented by Jones Day.
