American Spectrum Realty Announces Successful Completion Of A New Loan Refinance For Windrose Shopping Center

American Spectrum Realty, Inc. (NYSE MKT:AQQ), a real estate investment, management and leasing company headquartered in Houston, Texas, announced today that it has successfully negotiated a new loan for Windrose Shopping Center located at 20423 Kuykendahl Road in Houston, TX.

American Spectrum Realty Advisors, LLC (“ASRA”) secured a new fixed rate for the loan of $3,500,000, which was approximately 70 percent of the appraised value. The original loan of $2,450,000 was set to mature in April of 2013. The excess funds were used for tenant improvement projects, leasing costs, and working capital. The shopping center is currently 100% leased with 75% leased to medical related tenants for five to ten year terms with escalating base rental rates on a triple net basis. Windrose was acquired in 2007 from Atari for approximately $3.8 million.

Aggressive marketing initiatives and creative leasing strategies resulted in significantly increased occupancy, revenue growth, and NOI. These combined efforts increased the appraised value of the property significantly allowing American Spectrum to successfully negotiate a new loan on more favorable terms. The transaction closed on Friday March 1, 2013.
