The W Hotel Union Square is facing imminent default, according to a recent monthly report of 30-day-plus delinquencies for all commercial properties by Barclays Capital. The hotel is serving as collateral for a $115 million W New York-Union Square loan, the report shows. The loan has been transferred to a special servicer, being classified for imminent default. Barclays Capital’s report shows that 30-day-plus delinquencies for all commercial properties jumped 5.5 percent in October. The CMBS remittance report shows that the worst performing commercial mortgage category was hotels, which hit a record-high delinquency rate of 10.7 percent among loans that originated in 2007.
