The debts represent the entire subordinated tranche, or mezzanine III, of around 1 trillion won debts originated by the owners of the 36-story landmark office tower in Boston’s financial district, according to investment banking sources on May 18. 


State Street Bank and law firm K&L Gates LLP occupy the property.


The  office tower, built in 2003, has an assessed value of 1.4 trillion won.


NH Investment, a unit of South Korea’s national agricultural cooperative, will purchase the debts through a fund run by KTB Asset Management Co. Ltd.


A real estate industry source told the Korean Investors that the owners of the 97,200-square-meter building maintain a 25% stake, so the expected risk-adjusted return is relatively high.
