The loan was placed with a national lender for a securitized ex- ecution and offered a 10-year term and 30-year amortiza- tion. The 78-key property was acquired in early 2014 and had just completed a $1.2 million PIP. The renovations updated the common areas and all guest rooms to current Formula Blue standards with the exception of the corridors, which will be completed at a later date. The Sponsor was seeking to refinance their maturing debt and provide a return of some equity given the low le- verage debt they assumed at purchase and the additional equity required to complete the PIP. Quakertown is a suburb of the Allentown-Bethlehem MSA, which is located in the center of the Lehigh Valley region of Eastern Pennsylva- nia and is home to more than 800,000 people. The Allen- town-Bethlehemmetropolitan area is Pennsylvania's third largest metropolitan area. "We're pleased to have closed our seventh trans- action for The Wankawala Organization," said David Turley , principal of CHC. "This financing allowed a return of equity after a suc- cessful repositioning of a tired and operationally impaired asset." 
