CORRECTION: An earlier version of this post said that G4 Capital assigned its loan to Axos Bank. However, G4 did not assign the loan. Instead, Axos Bank acquired a senior participation interest in the loan by effectively lending G4 Capital an unspecified portion of the $45 million loan.
CLARIFICATION: Ralph Hanan of Compass Commercial (while previously with TGG Urban), represented the landlord, and Isaac Mograby of Crown Retail Services represented the tenant, Medici Living Group. Lee & Associates was not involved in the transaction.
