Strategic Properties of North America landed a $33 million refinancing on a former Lincoln Park condo building it bought in 2016 and has since converted to apartments.

Silverpeak Argentic provided the loan on the 133-unit building at 2625 North Clark Street known as The Kent, according to Cook County records. The company said it launched a significant renovation of the building after buying it, and the financing will help complete the project.

New Jersey-based Strategic Properties paid $35 million for the building, which was then condos, and has since converted it to apartments. The building actually opened as a rental before converting to condos in 2005, Crain’s reported at the time. Strategic Properties has been an active player in Chicago-area deconversions, which have been growing in popularity in recent years as investors look for a piece of the area’s lucrative rental market.

Last year, it executed what was then the most expensive deconversion in the city’s history when it bought the 268-unit Kennelly Square high-rise at 1749 North Wells Street for $78 million.

New York-based Silverpeak also recently loaned $94 million to Marc Realty Capital and The Wolcott Group for their deconversion project at River City in the South Loop.
