KBRA Assigns Preliminary Ratings to BX 2024-BIO

KBRA announces the assignment of preliminary ratings to four classes of BX 2024-BIO, a CMBS single-borrower securitization.

The collateral for the transaction is a $1.2 billion floating rate, interest-only mortgage loan. The loan has an initial two-year term with three, one-year extension options and requires monthly interest-only payments based on a SOFR cap of 4.00%. The loan is secured by the borrower’s fee simple interest in the Kendall Square Portfolio (“Kendall Square”) and Gateway of Pacific Phase I (“GoP Phase I”) property. The portfolio assets have a combined 1.1 million sf of lab/office space, 25,697 sf of retail space, 48,287 sf of amenity space, and approximately 3,442 parking stalls. Kendall Square (64.8% of allocated loan amount) is located in Cambridge, Massachusetts, approximately two miles west of the Boston CBD, and consists of two life science buildings and a 1,409-space subterranean parking garage. GoP Phase I (35.2%) is located in South San Francisco, California, approximately 10 miles south of the San Francisco CBD, and consists of one life science building and a tenant amenity center. As of September 2023, the portfolio was 98.7% leased to 11 unique tenants.

KBRA’s analysis of the transaction included a detailed evaluation of the properties’ cash flows using our U.S. CMBS Property Evaluation Methodology, its Methodology for Rating Interest-Only Certificates in CMBS Transactions, and the application of our U.S. CMBS Single Borrower & Large Loan Rating Methodology. In addition, KBRA also relied on its Global Structured Finance Counterparty Methodology for assessing counterparty risk in this transaction, its Methodology for Rating Interest-Only Certificates in CMBS Transactions, and its ESG Global Rating Methodology, to the extent deemed applicable.

The results of our analysis yielded a KBRA net cash flow (KNCF) for the portfolio of approximately $96.8 million, which is 12.1% below the issuer’s NCF, and a KBRA value of approximately $1.3 billion, which is 27.4% below the appraiser’s aggregate as-if funded value. The resulting in-trust KBRA Loan to Value (KLTV) is 90.7%. In our analysis of the transaction, we also reviewed and considered third party engineering, environmental, and appraisal reports, the results of our site inspection of the property, and legal documentation review.
