MacKenzie Capital Secures Acquisition Financing for War Horse Cities

John Black, Will Goetschius, and Brendan Harman of MacKenzie Capital, LLC, are pleased to announce they have secured acquisition financing for a landmark mixed-use property in Baltimore City for an entity sponsored by War Horse Cities, LLC, led by Scott Plank and Steve Jennings.   The total acquisition included over 800 boat slips, office, restaurant, retail space, and a development site, all of which are strategically located along Baltimore’s waterfront in the Canton neighborhood.  The financing was creatively structured to provide maximum flexibility to the borrower to pursue future development opportunities at the property.

“We are delighted to have worked with such entrepreneurial and creative operators as Scott and his team.  This will be yet another strategic asset in War Horse Cities’ portfolio that will positively impact Baltimore City and the local neighborhood,” stated John Black, President of MacKenzie Capital.  “War Horse’s hard work, diligence, and their creative approach to the challenges that were presented by this transaction in a short time frame were truly impressive,” Black added.
