Rodeo Drive is one of the most well-known posh shopping destinations in the world. 

The recently refinanced two-story retail property at 338-346 North Rodeo Drive is being leased to high-end design brands including Tom Ford, Bally and Balenciaga. 

HFF’s Marc Schillinger was one member of the debt placement team that represented the borrower. 

“The debt capital markets are extraordinarily dynamic today,” Schillinger said in the news release. “By running a comprehensive marketing process with a client that mandated us to exclusively negotiate on their behalf, we were able to obtain competitive options from banks, conduit and portfolio lenders before ultimately moving forward with an insurance company that was able to provide the most compelling terms and pricing available.”
