January 21, 2022

PORTLAND, Ore., Jan. 21, 2022 — Canyon Partners Real Estate LLC (“Canyon”) today announced it has provided a $47.4 million senior loan to an affiliate of BPM Real Estate Group (“BPM”) led by Walter C. Bowen for the recapitalization of Hotel Vance, a recently-constructed 180-room upscale hotel located in downtown Portland, Oregon. Hotel Vance is adjacent to Portland State University in the central business district and within easy walking distance to many shopping, dining, nightlife, and cultural destinations. The hotel features 180 guestrooms, over 4,000 square feet of meeting space, and an onsite restaurant, BEASTRO, which was recently launched by Seattle Seahawks football star Marshawn Lynch.

The hotel is one component of Broadway Tower, which is a 19-story LEED Gold-Certified high-rise developed by BPM and completed in 2018. Broadway Tower’s office component is currently fully leased to tenants including Amazon and Markowitz Herbold and was sold in 2020 for approximately $132 million.

Formerly branded as a Radisson Red, Hotel Vance re-opened in June 2021 as a Marriott Tribute Portfolio hotel and is under new management with Crescent Hotels & Resorts, a nationally-recognized operator of more than 100 hotels and resorts throughout the United States and Canada. The bridge loan transaction was facilitated by Malcolm Davies and Zack Streit with George Smith Partners.
