New CMBS Deal in the Works (Wednesday's News & Notes)

Good news for commercial real estate borrowers: there is another CMBS issue in the works. Put together by Goldman Sachs and Citigroup, the new issue will mark the third multi-borrower CMBS deal this year after the industry saw zero multi-borrower deals in 2009. Industry sources have told Retail Traffic, however, that the banks are being extremely careful about these new issues. Rather than putting them together and then selling the bonds, the banks secure the bond buyers ahead of time. So while things are improving on the CMBS front, the market is still very, very shaky.
