Washington Trust Finances $14.485 Million Norwalk, CT Office Building

Washington Trust’s Commercial Real Estate Group recently provided $14.485 million in financing to DIV 40 Richards, LLC for a 147,000 square foot office building in Norwalk, CT purchased in July of 2013.  The borrower is presently upgrading the building and adding amenities such as an expanded café, upgraded common areas, a new fitness center and shuttle service to the commuter station.

This project is sponsored by The Davis Companies (TDC), a full-service real estate firm located in Boston, MA.  Founded in 1976, TDC currently owns more than 10 million square feet of space across 17 states. The property is held by TDC’s $413.5 million real estate fund, Davis Investment Ventures Fund II, LP.  The Fund is actively seeking to acquire real estate equity, joint-venture equity, debt, and securities.  The Fund’s focus is on distressed, troubled or underperforming assets that can be acquired below their intrinsic value and where the firm’s operating platform, relationships, and experience provide a competitive advantage.

“This is an example of the type of project that has earned Davis Companies a reputation as one of the premier real estate investment, development and management firms in the northeast U.S.,” said Joseph J. MarcAurele, Washington Trust Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer.
