Item 8.01. Other Events.

On June 19, 2014, NorthStar Income II, through a subsidiary of its operating partnership, originated a $17.5 million senior loan (the "Senior Loan") secured by a portfolio of three multifamily properties located in suburban Atlanta, Georgia (the "Properties"). NorthStar Income II funded the Senior Loan with proceeds from its ongoing initial public offering.

The Properties consist of three garden-style multifamily properties containing a total of 893 units. In total, the Properties contain 956,000 square feet and are managed by an experienced real estate operator that manages over 4,000 multifamily units located throughout the southeastern United States. The borrower recently completed a $5.5 million renovation project at the Properties and plans to make an additional $437,100 of capital improvements using proceeds from the Senior Loan held in an upfront reserve controlled by NorthStar Income II.

The Senior Loan bears interest at a floating rate of 6.15% over the one-month London Interbank Offered Rate ("LIBOR"), but at no point shall LIBOR be less than 0.25%, resulting in a minimum interest rate of 6.40% per year. NorthStar Income II earned an upfront fee equal to 1.0% of the Senior Loan amount and will earn a fee equal to 1.0% of the outstanding principal balance of the Senior Loan at the time of repayment. The Senior Loan is currently unlevered and NorthStar Income II intends to finance the Senior Loan on a credit facility in the future.

The initial term of the Senior Loan is 35 months, with two one-year extension options available to the borrower, subject to the satisfaction of certain performance tests and the payment of a fee equal to 0.25% of the amount being extended for the first one-year extension and 0.50% of the amount being extended for the second one-year extension. The Senior Loan may be prepaid during the first 24 months, provided the borrower pays an additional amount equal to the remaining interest due on the amount prepaid through month 24. Thereafter, the Senior Loan may be prepaid in whole or in part without penalty. The underlying loan agreement requires the borrower to comply with various financial and other covenants. In addition, the loan agreement contains customary events of default (subject to certain materiality thresholds and grace and cure periods). The events of default are standard for agreements of this type and include, for example, payment and covenant breaches, insolvency of the borrower, occurrence of an event of default relating to the collateral or a change in control of the borrower.

The loan-to-value ratio ("LTV Ratio") of the Properties securing the Senior Loan is approximately 56%. The LTV Ratio is the amount loaned to the borrower net of reserves funded and controlled by NorthStar Income II and its affiliates, if any, over the appraised value of the Properties at the time of origination.

As of June 24, 2014, NorthStar Income II's portfolio consists of four senior mortgage loans with a combined principal amount of $157.2 million.
