KBRA Assigns Ratings to Benchmark 2024-V7

30 May 2024   |   New York


KBRA is pleased to announce the assignment of ratings to 14 classes of Benchmark 2024-V7, an $821.9 million CMBS conduit transaction collateralized by 27 commercial mortgage loans secured by 80 properties.

The collateral properties are located throughout 19 MSAs, of which the three largest are New York (32.5%), Washington - NoVA – MD (13.6%), and San Diego (8.5%). The pool has exposure to all major property types, with six types representing more than 10.0% of the pool balance: office (26.2%), industrial (17.3%), self-storage (14.4%), multifamily (13.5%), mixed-use (12.9%), and lodging (10.4%). The loans have principal balances ranging from $3.3 million to $80.0 million for the largest loan in the pool, 28-40 West 23rd Street (9.7%), which is secured by a 578,105 sf, mixed-use office and retail property located in the Flatiron neighborhood of New York City’s borough of Manhattan. The five largest loans, which also include 1812 North Moore (8.5%), Sunroad Centrum (8.5%), Prime Storage - Hudson Valley Portfolio (7.0%), and Hilton Dual Brand Las Vegas (5.6%), represent 39.4% of the initial pool balance, while the top 10 loans represent 65.1%.

KBRA’s analysis of the transaction incorporated our multi-borrower rating process that begins with our analysts' evaluation of the underlying collateral properties' financial and operating performance, which determine KBRA’s estimate of sustainable net cash flow (KNCF) and KBRA value using our U.S. CMBS Property Evaluation Methodology. On an aggregate basis, KNCF was 11.4% less than the issuer cash flow. KBRA capitalization rates were applied to each asset’s KNCF to derive values that were, on an aggregate basis, 38.0% less than third party appraisal values. The pool has an in-trust KLTV of 90.9% and an all-in KLTV of 90.9%. The model deploys rent and occupancy stresses, probability of default regressions, and loss given default calculations to determine losses for each collateral loan that are then used to assign our credit ratings.
