Barry Sternlicht’s Starwood Capital Group missed two monthly payments on securitized debt tied to five shopping malls anchored by bankrupt department stores including Sears and J.C. Penney.

The delinquent May and June payments are further signs of the damage wrought by the Covid-19 pandemic and economic shutdown, especially to retail. The missed payments total $2.7 million on the $549 million commercial mortgage-backed security, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.
