Landmark at Plaza Park, Ltd., filed a plan of reorganization under Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code. Land- mark is a limited partnership whose only substantial asset is a two-hundred-unit garden apartment complex. City Federal holds the first mortgage on the property in the face amount of $2,250,000. The mortgage is due and payable six years from now. Landmark has proposed a plan of reorganization under which the property now in possession of City Federal would be returned. Landmark will then deliver a nonrecourse note, payable in three years, in the face amount of $2,705,820.31 to City Federal in substitution of all of the partnership’s existing liabilities. On the sixteenth month through the thirty-sixth month after the effective date of the plan, Landmark will make monthly interest payments computed on a property value of $2,260,000 at a rate 3 percent above the original mortgage rate but 2.5 percent below the market rate for loans of similar risk. Finally, the note will be secured by the existing mortgage. Landmark’s theory is that the note will be paid off at the end of thirty-six months by a combination of refinancing and accumulation of cash from the project. The key is Landmark’s proposal to obtain a new first mortgage in three years in the face amount of $2,400,000. City Federal is a first mortgagee without recourse that has been collecting rents pursuant to a rent assignment agreement since the default on the mortgage eleven months ago. City Federal is impaired by the plan and has rejected the plan. May it complete its foreclosure action? Explain.
