NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Fitch Ratings has affirmed sixteen classes of Bear Stearns Commercial
Mortgage Securities Trust (BSCMS) commercial mortgage pass-through
certificates series 2005-PWR7. A detailed list of rating actions follows
at the end of this press release.
KEY RATING DRIVERS
The affirmations are based on generally stable loss expectations from
Fitch's previous rating action. Although credit enhancement is
increasing with continued loan amortization, payoffs and defeasance,
expected losses on certain loans are increasing.
Fitch modeled losses of 8.8% of the remaining pool; expected losses on
the original pool balance total 8.2%, including $28.7 million (2.6% of
the original pool balance) in realized losses to date. Fitch has
designated 17 loans (22%) as Fitch Loans of Concern including the two
specially serviced loans (4.5%). Loan maturities are concentrated in
2014, 2015, and 2016 comprising of 23.3%, 65.5%, and 7.6% of the pool
balance, respectively. Of the loans maturing in 2015, all mature in the
first quarter: 42.2% in January, 38.7% in February, and 19.1% in March.
As of the July 2014 remittance, the pool's aggregate principal balance
has been paid down by 35.3% to $727.3 million from $1.1 billion at
issuance. Interest shortfalls totaling $3.5 million are currently
affecting classes F through Q. Per the servicer reporting, twenty one
loans (28.7% of the pool) are defeased, including 4 loans (16.7%) in the
The largest contributor to expected losses is the Shops at Boca Park
loan (6.9%), which is secured by 140,415 square feet (sf) of retail
space and a 139,000 sf ground lease anchor pad within a lifestyle center
located northwest of Las Vegas. The property is shadow anchored by
Target and Vons. The loan which had previously been in special servicing
and was modified in November 2012 (modification included extending the
term 48 periods and reduced the interest rate from 5.25% to 4.75%)
transferred back to the master servicer in June 2013. The collateral is
part of a larger lifestyle center that features a diverse set of upscale
and mid-tier retailers in the suburban submarket of Summerlin. The
center reported occupancy of 97% and a debt service coverage ratio
(DSCR) of 1.23x as of year-end 2013.
The second largest contributor to expected losses is the
specially-serviced Quintard Mall loan (4.3%), which is secured by
375,486 sf of a 621,752 sf regional mall located in Oxford, AL,
approximately 60 miles east of Birmingham. The loan transferred to
special servicing in May 2013 based on a monetary default after the loan
became 60 days delinquent. The sponsor initially requested a
modification which was rejected, but continues to negotiate with the
special servicer in order to resolve the current default and avoid
foreclosure proceedings. The property is anchored by JC Penney,
Dillards, and Sears and is the only regional mall in the market with the
closest competitor located more than 30 miles to the east. Servicer
reported occupancy as of June 2013 was 88%. In-line occupancy was
reported at 78%; however, this includes 19% temporary tenants. Excluding
the temporary tenants, in-line occupancy is 63%. The loan is categorized
as 90+ days delinquent.
The third largest contributor to expected losses is the 1550 Magnolia
Avenue Industrial loan (1.1%), which is secured by a 198,800 sf complex
located in Corona, CA. The largest tenant, MonkeySports, which occupies
81.5% of the NRA, has a lease expiration during the first quarter of
2015. Although the subject is fully occupied and performance has been
consistent, Fitch is concerned with the future performance due to weak
market fundamentals and uncertainty with the status of the lease
renewal. The loan remains current and with the master servicer.
The remaining specially serviced loan in the pool (0.2%), is secured by
a 38,836 sf industrial building located in Harlingen, TX. The loan was
transferred to the special servicer in March 2014 for payment default.
The property foreclosure process was completed on July 1, 2014 and a
third party manager was appointed. The special servicer continues to
evaluate potential workout strategies.
The Rating Outlook on class A-J was changed to Positive to reflect
Fitch's expectation of continued increases in credit enhancement due to
the potential payoff of loans in early 2015 at maturity. An additional
sensitivity analysis was performed assuming higher losses on the
Quintard Mall. An upgrade to A-J is possible if expected losses on the
Quintard Mall remain stable and the maturing loans' payoff is imminent.
The a Negative Rating Outlook on class C reflects the potential for
downgrades if pool performance deteriorates, maturing loans default at
maturity and/or the Quintard Mall's value declines.

--$3.5 million class A-AB at 'AAAsf'; Outlook Stable;
