NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Fitch Ratings has affirmed 15 classes of GS Mortgage Securities Trust 2015-GC32 Commercial Mortgage Pass-Through Certificates. A detailed list of rating actions follows at the end of this press release.
KEY RATING DRIVERS
The affirmations are based on the stable performance of the underlying collateral pool. There have been no delinquent or specially serviced loans since issuance. The stable performance reflects no material changes to pool metrics since issuance, therefore the original rating analysis was considered in affirming the transaction.
The pool's aggregate principal balance has been reduced by 0.69% to $996 million from $1.0 billion at issuance. No loans have been designated as Fitch Loans of Concern.
The largest loan in the pool (9.9% of the pool) is secured by 32 cross-collateralized and cross defaulted properties consisting of 32 manufactured housing communities containing 4,965 pads. One of the communities is age-restricted, and the remaining 31 communities are all-ages. The assets are located across six states, with the largest concentration in Colorado. As of March 2015, the combined occupancy was 84%.
The second largest loan in the pool (7.4%) is secured by a 301,501 sf retail and office space across 15 separate buildings and is currently leased to a mix of 88 national and local retail and dining tenants. The property is anchored by Whole Foods and CVS. As of December 2015, occupancy increased to 95% from 93% at issuance.
The third largest loan in the pool (6.6%) is secured by a 595,412 sf power center located in ElPaso, TX. The property is centrally located to the area's three major activity hubs (Bridge of Americas, El Paso International Airport and Fort Bliss) and is a convenient shopping destination for tourists and residents of El Paso. The property was 92% occupied as of December 2015.
The Outlook for all classes remains Stable. Fitch does not foresee positive or negative ratings migration until a material economic or asset level event changes the transaction's portfolio-level metrics.
