Bank of the Ozarks Debt Capital Major Force in Current Chicago Boom

So Crain's is just out with an interesting piece profiling Bank of the Ozarks, and its lending for multiple big ticket projects downtown this cycle - jumping into the market in a big way over the last couple years....

One tidbit in particular that caught my attention was an executive at the bank mentioning that they have two big loans ('big' based on various numbers provided within the article) working their way toward closing in the market (my assumption here is that they are also construction loans, and not permanent commercial mortgages, eg for existing buildings - however this is only an assumption, based on the type of lending the bank was profiled for - and given examples thereof - in the article).....I wonder which two major projects these will be (undoubtedly they are ones we know of here and are in advanced planning stages)?? The exec. also mentioned that Bank of the Ozarks has strong conviction in the South Loop and West Loop - possibly one important clue as to identity.....

My guess (hope?): 1326 S Michigan and 130 N Franklin..............who knows? (perhaps someone reading this!) We shall see........


PS one very interesting facet to this bank's current lending here is that they are the exception to the rule in a US-based traditional depository institution (traditional bank) being willing to be the sole construction lender on large-scale (my guess might be 150mil and up for Chicago - or perhaps 200mil and up) projects at this point in the cycle......pretty much every other bank requires participation of at least one other bank, if not two in many cases.....the potential 'riskiness' of this approach is of course discussed in the article.....

That is the most thoroughly tested patch of sand in the city at this point.

Did One South Halsted ever lose their zoning change? Curbed reported this back in March 2016:
Quote:
While the request was granted by the city, it did come with a caveat that work would need to begin within 12 months or the plan would revert to its previous specification.

Based on a report of soil testing taking place onsite this week by Chicago Architecture Blog, it is clear that the team behind One South Halsted is keen on not letting their zoning amendment lapse this June.

There are going to be a good number of rental tower starts this year (in other words, the rental construction boom is still on this year.....the demand/rate boom is definitely at least slowing meaningfully, and at least at present). Expect the slowdown in starts to be next year. Which implies a slowdown in deliveries not until around 2020. Will the rental market be overbuilt? Yes Will effective rents stop growing and in fact drop at least a bit over next few years? Yes Will you need to lower rents in your units? I don't know But be prepared for that possibility......

Also, let me just add that the rental market shifting back toward a tenants market for a couple years or even more is not at all an inherantly bad thing overall. We've had an incredible run of many consecutive years of market leverage firmly belonging to landlords with strong rent increases......that never - thankfully, as that would be a very bad economic outcome - lasts forever, nor should it. Market leverage shifts back and forth over time. Shifting toward better news for tenants over the next few years....
