April 23 (Bloomberg) -- Loan extensions will likely be insufficient to prevent a wave of commercial real-estate defaults as borrowers struggle to refinance debt amid tighter lending standards and plummeting property values, according to Deutsche Bank AG analysts.

As much as $1 trillion in commercial mortgages maturing during the next decade will be unable to secure financing without significant cash injections from property owners, according to the Deutsche analysts. At least two-thirds, or $410 billion, of commercial mortgages bundled and sold as bonds coming due between 2009 and 2018 will need additional cash infusions to refinance, the analysts led by Richard Parkus in New York said in a report yesterday.

 

Many commercial real-estate borrowers will be unwilling or unable to put additional equity into the properties, and will have to negotiate to extend the loan or walk away from the property, the analysts said. The volume of potentially troubled loans and declining real-estate values will make loan extensions harder to obtain.

 

“The scale of this issue is virtually unprecedented in commercial real estate, and its impact is likely to dominate the industry for the better part of a decade,” the analysts said.

 

Many dismiss the seriousness of the problem by assuming lenders will agree to extend maturities, according to the report. That approach might work if the amount of loans that failed to refinance was relatively small, but the percentage is likely to be 60 to 70 percent, the analysts said.

 

The overhang of distressed real estate will hinder price appreciation, making lenders less likely to extend mortgages with the expectation that the value of the property will rise enough to qualify for refinancing, the analysts said.

 

Loans made in 2007 when prices peaked and underwriting standards bottomed will face the biggest hurdles to refinancing. Roughly 80 percent of commercial mortgages packaged into bonds in 2007 wouldn’t qualify for refinancing, according to Deutsche data.

      J,ai cherché partout sur le forum mais je ne crois pas que ce projet n'ait jamais été posté, mais il est presque complété déjà!
      C'est le projet Le Marché, au 7130 Casgrain, dans Rosemont-la-Petite-Patrie, plus précisément la Petite-Italie
      4 étages + Mezzanine
      Commerces au RDC, logements aux étages. 

      C'est une belle addition aux abords du Marché Jean-Talon et ça risque de beaucoup aider le volet commercial de sa portion Ouest, sur Casgrain, où se trouvait autrefois le Staburcks en diagonale. Ça permet aussi d'offrir une belle perspective depuis la Place-du-Marché-du-Nord, et depuis la nouvelle place Shamrock face à Première Moisson. 

      Autant j'adore le Marché Jean-Talon, autant je trouve que ses rues limitrophes manquent vraiment d'amour et d'animation. Henri-Julien avec ses fonds de cour en vieilles clôtures frost, et Casgrain avec le côté aveugle du Mondoux, les aberrants parkings extérieurs du marché et l'ancienne clinique d'inspection des viandres qui tombe en ruine... heureusement, il semble y avoir une volonté d'améliorer les choses avec le nouvel aménagement de Shamrock que je trouve très réussi en général!
