BIRMINGHAM, Mich., Feb. 5, 2018 – Soaring Pine Capital (SPC), the real estate vertical of Simon Group Holdings, has purchased a note from Ultima Bank for two c-store gas station properties in Minnesota. One of the properties is located in East Grand Forks, and the other is located in Crookston.

SPC arranged a workout with the previous owner, who owed Ultima Bank $2.6 million on the property.

“We believe the workout was a win-win for all parties involved. This was a great deal,” commented Faiz Simon, Managing Partner at Simon Group Holdings.

In addition to the gas station convenient stores, the properties are both mixed developments and include multiple tenants. Simon and the SPC real estate group see tremendous opportunity for these properties.
