TEXT-Fitch downgrades 3 classes of BSCMS 2007-PWR18
Jan 30 - Fitch Ratings has downgraded three classes and affirmed 12 classes of Bear Stearns Commercial Mortgage Securities Trust 2004-TOP16 commercial mortgage pass-through certificates. A detailed list of rating actions follows at the end of this press release. SENSITIVITY/RATING DRIVERS: The downgrades reflect updated valuations for specially serviced loans and modeled losses for Fitch Loans of Concern. Fitch modeled losses of 1.9% of the remaining pool. Fitch's modeled losses based on the original pool balance is 1.3%, including 1.0% to date. Fitch has designated 11 loans (14.3% of the pool) as Fitch Loans of Concern, which includes three specially serviced assets (9.4%). As of the January 2013 distribution date, the pool's aggregate principal balance has been reduced by 30.8% to $800.3 million from $1.16 billion at issuance. Per the servicer reporting, 13 loans (16.6% of the pool) are defeased. Interest shortfalls are currently affecting classes L through P. The largest contributor to expected losses is a loan (0.4% of the pool) secured by a 43,927 square foot (sf) suburban office property located in Fort Washington, PA (north of Philadelphia). The property has been struggling with occupancy issues, with most recent occupancy of 32% as of third quarter 2012 (3Q'12). Vacant space is being marketed by an in-house leasing broker; however, the borrower has indicated that the local leasing market remains stagnant. The next largest contributor to expected losses is a loan (1.5% of the pool) secured by a 81,204 sf medical office park located in West Seneca, NY (south of Buffalo, NY). Per master servicer, expenses grew 88% from underwriting at issuance to YE 2011 primarily due to higher real estate taxes, repair and maintenance, and utilities. DSCR and occupancy were 0.70x and 84%, respectively, as of 3Q'12. The Congress Center Office Development, a 524,784 sf office building located in Chicago, IL, is the largest loan in the pool (8.9%) and currently in special servicing. However, per the special servicer the loan has recently been modified, including an assumption by a new borrower and extended maturity and interest-only periods.
