Mike’s New book is out NOW!

After forty years in professional sport and business, Michael Friedman sits down to describe the harrowing career path that he — a self-described “ordinary guy”– pursued, stumbled on, raced along, departed from, triumphed through and is still following with undiminished enthusiasm.

After forty years in professional sport and business, Michael Friedman sits down to describe the harrowing career path that he — a self-described “ordinary guy”– pursued, stumbled on, raced along, departed from, triumphed through and is still following with undiminished enthusiasm.

This is no “how to” book, as Friedman admits, nor a “how not to” book. It’s simply what happened, but recounted with enough honesty that we can laugh and learn as we try to keep up with Mike’s busy but meandering path.

Crains Cleveland Business “Go West, Friedman!”

While a lot of Ohioans were waiting for drilling to take off in the Utica shale, Beachwood resident Michael Friedman already was cashing in on the new boom in high-volume, slick-water, horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, as it’s commonly known.

He just had to go to North Dakota to do it.

Friedman has been working the big Bakken shale play in the Dakotas, and he said he’s finding more opportunities as he expands the scope of his activities. While Friedman originally focused on building and renting out housing for oilfield workers, he’s now also brokering deals and arranging financing for other developers in the region.

Statler Arms Apartments is a historically renovated former Statler Hotel high-rise in the Theater District on East 12th Street and Euclid in downtown Cleveland that was converted into 295 apartments in 2001. Millennia Companies closed on the building this past Tuesday with plans on renovating and redeveloping the tired asset into a higher end property, geared towards the ever-expanding market of Millennials flocking to downtown Cleveland along with 30-40+ age professionals.  Berkadia underwrote the debt while GenX Capital Partners secured the equity for the “all in” $53MM transaction.

“No question, it’s still a heavy lift if you will, procuring equity financing for downtown Cleveland projects, but we have access to equity partners not many developers are aware of and sort of fly under the radar, not to mention Millennia and its CEO Frank Sinito are A+, high-quality sponsors, so that was helpful. Combining that with the incredible teamwork from Mike Friedman of Millennia Capital we were able to pull together the needed equity with one of our funds to get this massive deal to the closing table.”
