Zeller Realty Group has taken out a new $92 million loan on its Schaumburg office complex, continuing a string of major refinancings of its local office portfolio.

The Chicago-based firm secured the refinancing on the Woodfield Preserve, a two-building office complex at 10-20 North Martingale Road, Cook County property records show. California-based Oaktree Capital provided the loan.

Zeller bought the Schaumburg complex in 2016 for $74 million, taking out a $72 million loan to finance the deal. That loan appears to have covered the acquisition and improvements to the complex, including a new tenant courtyard that hosts events like sunrise yoga.

Since buying the complex, Zeller has signed a number of new tenants, including a 75,000 square foot lease to insurance brokerage Assurance Agency. In March, co-working firm Regus signed a 36,000-square-foot lease in the complex.

The refinancing of the Schaumburg property is at least the fourth debt restructuring Zeller has undertaken on its local office holdings since 2018.
