Year in Review 2017

By Daniel Palmier, UC Funds UC Funds’ year in review: 2017 deals and innovations


Harvey relief efforts. Our hearts go out to all affected by these disastrous storms

ommercial real estate has seen a whirlwind of excitement in 2017, from major closed deals and r ede - velopments to our revo- l u t i o n a r y new mort - gage prod- uct, there’s much to re- flect upon and look forward to in the new year. The debut of our competi- tive mortgage loan, UC GO, was a huge highlight for UC Funds in 2017. Early this year we noticed commercial banks pulling back on com- mercial real estate financing due to increased regulations, and saw an opportunity for innovation. This led to our development of UC GO, the most aggressive mortgage product on the market today. PioneeringUCGOchanged the game for UC Funds and commercial real estate lend- ing entirely. Unlike many of our competitors in the current lending environ- ment, the non-recourse loan provides quick turnaround, speed, and flexibility, offer- ing borrowers an alternative path to long term reduction. In 2018, we look forward to closing many UC GO deals in the Mid-Atlantic region of the United States. 2017 also marked the grand opening of 329 Pleas- ant Avenue in East Harlem, NewYork. We originated the ground up construction loan and partnered with HAP Investment Developers in 2015 to create a Class-A, eight-story luxury apart- ment building in the rapidly growing area of Manhattan. We provided a $10.8 million first mortgage loan for the conversion and expansion of an existing building in Dobbs Ferry, a suburb of the prosperous Westches- ter County, New York. The apartments, containing 18 class A units, are located just five minutes from the Dobbs Ferry Station and will appeal to commuters looking for a quiet suburb in close proximity to Manhattan. The Palmier Foundation had an equally busy year. In wake of the tragic hurricane damage over the last few months, the Foundation con- tributed $1,000 to Hurricane Daniel Palmier
