And with that, I'll now turn things over to Steve.

Stephen D. Plavin -- Chief Executive Officer

Thanks, Weston. The first quarter marked the reintegration of BXMT originations and the resumption of growth in our loan portfolio. Over the nearly eight years of BXMT activity, our business has shown a remarkably consistent trajectory and strategic direction. We source and execute on great investments with top sponsors. We innovate on both sides of the balance sheet. We manage liquidity and risk prudently, and we create great returns for our shareholders.

2020 demonstrates the benefits of this approach with our strong credit and earnings performance through an unprecedented periods. In 2021, positive [Technical Issues] within our business is again building. In Q1, we closed $1.7 billion of new originations, backed by very high quality properties and strong growth sectors and markets.

We improved both the cost and structure of our funding with multiple capital markets executions. And we grew the loan portfolio by nearly $700 million, a solid first step in deploying our substantial dry powder. Our business has been consistently strong because of the fundamental advantages we realized from our management team being part of Blackstone. Blackstone's monumental scale across the real estate universe provides unparalleled access to proprietary information is extremely beneficial in our sourcing and underwriting. And the deep talent pool and experience within Blackstone has led to a great track record of investment performance and access to capital throughout cycles.

Today, the emerging transaction environment provides a fruitful backdrop for our business. Borrowers are coming off this pandemic sidelines and executing a new investment opportunities. And with more widespread vaccine distribution and growing consumer confidence, we expect to see increasing economic activity that will benefit commercial real estate performance. The BXMT business drawing on the tremendous competitive advantages of the entire Blackstone platform remains well positioned for growth and outperformance.

And with that, I will turn it over to Katie to address our activities in this quarter in more detail.

Katie Keenan -- President

Thanks, Steve. With transaction activity in the market expanding, we are seeing strong momentum in our business. Our investment pace accelerated this quarter, as we closed nine new loans and grew our portfolio to a record $18.7 billion. Our substantial liquidity as well as the increasingly efficient financing available to us provides the runway for meaningful accretive portfolio growth within our existing capital base. And we are on our way with $2 billion of new loans closed or in closing, including $600 million already closed so far in April. Even more importantly, our new investment opportunities are highly attractive from a credit perspective.

This quarter, we saw a robust activity in sectors with strong tailwinds, like industrial, multifamily, life sciences and growth market office. We continue to capitalize on areas where Blackstone is a market leader, affording us excellent insight into deal analysis and the ability to build conviction quickly.

Most of our loans this quarter supported new acquisitions, where our ability to use this information advantage to provide speed uncertainty is particularly important, and where our borrowers invested substantial new equity alongside our loans. $1.3 billion of our originations were with repeat sponsors, where our long term relationships continue to yield differentiated access to opportunities. And we also closed loans with six new borrowers this quarter, indicative of our ever-growing client base.

We made new loans in growing sunbelt markets like Austin, Texas; Durham, North Carolina; and Miami, Florida, as well as solid core markets like Boston. And we saw the strategic benefit of our deep experience investing in Europe were the dominant position of the Blackstone platform especially in the context of a less liquid market environment has allowed us to consistently find attractive relative value opportunities over time.

Our business in Europe yielded our largest deal of the quarter. A $575 million portion of a $1.2 billion loan to finance the acquisition of a 91% occupied industrial portfolio in Sweden. For the Blackstone, equity business is best-in-class European industrial platform. This portfolio has strong in-place cash flow, a high-quality granular tenant base, and powerful momentum from growing e-commerce penetration in one of Europe's most resilient economies. Given the geography and nature of the acquisition, the situation required lenders who are capable of executing in the Swedish jurisdiction and who could provide certainty and size, thereby creating a compelling lending opportunities by great real estate assets.

We value large scale transactions because they typically come with substantial equity from well-capitalized experienced sponsors, institutional quality assets and deal dynamics that fit well with our core strengths. In addition to the Swedish logistics deal, this quarter we also closed a $491 million, 65% loan to cost new acquisition financing for [Indecipherable] principle on our life sciences conversion in East Cambridge, Mass, the best lab market in the world.

As one of the largest owners in the market, we are deeply familiar with Cambridge Life Sciences, which allowed us to quickly develop confidence on credit, while at the same time using our scale to commit to the whole large loan and win in a competitive process. As the capital markets pick up, we are seeing an increasing volume of repayments, a headwind on deployment, but a healthy sign for credit. The performance of our loans has remained very strong, consistent with our experience throughout 2020. We had seven upgrades and no downgrades this quarter, as business plans progressed across the portfolio in parallel with the reopening of the economy.

As we see transaction flow growing, we are also focused on optimizing our balance sheet to drive down our cost of capital and further diversify our funding sources. In February, we priced an add-on to our term loan B at LIBOR plus 2.25% in line with the record tight levels of our December 2019 deal, and reflective of our status as a top quality issuer.

We continue to drive improved pricing and market leading structure on our credit facility is a testament to the quality of our assets and depth of our relationships. And earlier this month, we closed a $1 billion CLO, our fourth overall, and third in the last 14 months. In addition to giving us access to attractive asset financing for newly originated loans, FL4 refinanced our first CLO proving the long-term viability of this financing option as a permanent component last year. [Phonetic]

In an increasingly competitive spread environment, our ability to access capital markets on compelling terms is a critical advantage, allowing us to capitalize our business efficiently and maintain our focus on high-quality assets, sponsors and loans. With more lenders entering the market as the worst of COVID receipts [Phonetic] from deal, our scale relationships, creativity and expertise are more important than ever. We are seeing and evaluating lending opportunities around the world, maintaining our characteristic credit discipline and finding many attractive investments for our capital.

Adherence to the simple business model of low leverage senior lending to great sponsors capitalized by a match term high integrity balance sheet drove strong performance last year and continues to be our North Star. And our performing portfolio of first mortgage loans financed by a well-priced and ever improving balance sheet continues to produce attractive current income, a 9% return on book in a near zero LIBOR environment.

Thank you, and I'll now turn the call over to Tony.

Anthony F. Marone -- Chief Financial Officer, Principal Accounting Officer and Assistant Secretary

Thank you, Katie, and good morning, everyone. Stephen, Katie highlighted this quarter's results kick off 2021 with a resumption of more typical BXMT activity, as we in the broader market continue to put the impacts of COVID-19 further behind us this. This quarter we reported GAAP net income of $0.54 per share and distributable earnings of $0.59 per share, in line with the fourth quarter of last year, despite continued low interest rates globally.

Our book value per share of $26.35 was also in line with 4Q, as it was only a minimal change in our CECL loan loss reserve, which is one of the largest potential drivers of variability in our GAAP book value. We carried a $1.25 per share CECL reserve as of quarter end, so growth of this reserve, our book value would be $27.60, roughly the same level as we reported in 4Q 2019 before the impacts of COVID and the new CECL accounting standard.

During the quarter, we originated 1.7% new loans driving our total portfolio to $18.7 billion. Although $1.3 billion of these loans closed in March, and therefore had a needed contribution to our 1Q results. They position us well for incremental earnings going into the second quarter. Also, we received nearly $800 million of repayments this quarter as overall transaction volume has resumed. However, we generated meaningfully less prepayment income in 1Q than typical pre-COVID quarter. This reflects the seasoning of our portfolio resulting from the lower volume of repayments and originations we closed last year.

Credit quality was stable this quarter with only 2% of loans on non-accruals, 100% interest collections. And as I noted earlier, no material movement in our CECL reserve. Our average origination LTV of 65% continues to be a source of strength and stability for us, as markets returned to normal and our borrowers are even further incentivized to protect the significant equity capital they have invested in our collateral assets.

Our capital markets and portfolio financing activity also reflect a return to more normal markets and operations, as we continue to grow our dynamic financing strategy. Notably, we closed a $200 million add-on to our $737 million A1 secured term loan, matching the attractive LIBOR plus 2.25% rate from our 4Q 2019 transaction. Similarly, although after quarter end in April, we closed a $1 billion CLO, our fourth transaction since we began the strategy in 2017. We continue to improve the structural flexibility of our CLOs with the ability to add incremental assets to CLO for over the next six months. In addition to the dynamic replenishment and loan modification features, we have utilized in our prior CLOs.

Lastly, but significantly, we closed $1.3 billion of new transactions with our credit facility lenders who financed 55% of our portfolio asset 331. These large diversified credit facilities provided flexible financing for us, as we continue to expand and improve our terms and structure. As an example, this quarter we added Swedish krona to one of our facilities to finance the $575 million equivalent loan, Katie mentioned earlier, and to generally support the growth of our lending activities in Europe.

We closed the quarter with a low debt-to-equity ratio of only 2.6 times coupled with significant liquidity of $1.1 billion. As transaction volume has picked up, we look forward to continued growth in our loan portfolio as we deploy our dry powder into the $2 billion pipeline, Katie mentioned earlier, which will generate earnings for our stockholders and provide a larger platform from which to pursue further accretive investment opportunities. Importantly, we continue to be vigilant with asset, sector and borrower selection to protect our portfolio from any potential downside volatility as the global economy continues its recovery.

Thank you for your support. And with that, we're ready to open the call to questions.

Questions and Answers:

Operator

Okay. And your first question comes from the line of Timothy Hayes, BTIG. Caller, your line is open. Please go ahead.

Timothy Hayes -- BTIG -- Analyst

Great. Good morning, guys, and congrats on a very strong quarter. My first question, and it sounds like you're gearing up for some nice origination growth. The pipeline seems very strong. And I know repayments can be difficult to predict. But as the credit environment improves, I imagine repayments will pick up as well. So just wondering if you can give us an idea of your expectations for net portfolio growth given the pipeline you noted and expectations for repayments over the coming quarters?

Katie Keenan -- President

Thanks, Tim, and great to have you on the call. I think as far as repayments, to your point, they are a bit unpredictable. But what we've seen consistently is that they're very well correlated with our origination activities. And so we expect a similar trend as to what we've had historically pre-COVID. And with the existing capital base, we have -- we think we have a lot of runway for portfolio growth. So a little hard to predict specifically, but the correlation really should hold.

Timothy Hayes -- BTIG -- Analyst

Got it. Okay. And then on the pipeline, I think I saw your weighted average portfolio yield, I think actually ticked up a bit this quarter, and we've seen some of your peers note stress in terms of pressure on asset yield and seeing that come down with first quarter results. I'm just curious with your pipeline, how all in coupons look relative to the portfolio average. And if you expect you're able to achieve similar ROEs that you were -- that you've been able to achieve, or maybe even relative to pre-COVID levels given kind of what's happening on the financing side as well?

Katie Keenan -- President

Yes. I think what we're seeing in the market is ROAs and ROEs is pretty consistent on a spread basis from pre-COVID. Every quarter there is, obviously, a little bit of idiosyncratic is depending on which loans closed in which quarter. But we've held very consistent. And I think to your point, we are seeing some spread pressure in the market on the lending side. But we're also a very significant beneficiary from that on the borrowing side. And we're always very focused on making sure that our capital sources are enabling us to continue accessing the loans that we want to lend on, even as we see spreads compressing in the market.

Timothy Hayes -- BTIG -- Analyst

Got it. Makes sense. And then just one more broad color for me. It's great to see stable credit trends in the portfolio. Maybe if you could just touch on, maybe, New York City office exposure in general, since you guys are pretty well located there. And just wondering how maybe underlying rents and occupancies have trended in those assets underlying your loans in that market and to those into office specifically. And just on the market in general, if you had any updated thoughts on how Class A office will perform and gateway cities like New York City, and if there is any kind of range of valuation haircuts, you're expecting broadly.

Katie Keenan -- President

Yeah. I think as far as generally in the markets where we've been active, we're increasingly seeing corporations and CEOs comment on what we've seen for a while, which is that interpersonal [Phonetic] work is necessary for fostering culture, talent development, collaboration, ingenuity. These dynamics we think are particularly important in the industries that we're creating office demand even before COVID, like life sciences and content creation. And where we've long been focused in terms of our lending activities. We like to lend our new quality office buildings healthier, more flexible spaces, better amenities, the right sub-markets. These are the buildings that we saw tenants expanding in and where demand was being created pre-COVID and that trend is continuing. So while the overall office market will take time to recover and we think the work from home dynamics will have some impact on values and rents. The impact really will be uneven across office market. There is a flight to quality, we're already seeing that in different markets. And we think our portfolio is in the right neighborhood.

Our office loan this quarter, I think, it's a great example of the long-term office lending philosophy we've had in the portfolio. The brand new build office building, East Austin, Texas, low leverage acquisition loan to an A plus sponsor and a market where we're seeing great fundamental. So overall, we feel like we've made the right asset selection in our portfolio and we're seeing the types of assets we lend on being outperformers.

Timothy Hayes -- BTIG -- Analyst

Right. I'll hop back in the queue. Thanks for the color, Katie. Appreciate it.

And your next question comes from the line of Doug Harter from Credit Suisse. Please go ahead.

Stephen D. Plavin -- Chief Executive Officer

Good morning, Doug.

Douglas Harter -- Credit Suisse -- Analyst

Good morning. You mentioned that the income from prepayments was lower this quarter than pre-COVID quarters. I was just wondering if you could size that? And then, just help us understand kind of how that might look going forward given the seasoning you mentioned, and kind of thought process around when that might return to normal?

Douglas N. Armer -- Executive Vice President, Capital Markets and Treasurer

Hey, Doug, it's Doug here. I'll take that one. Historically, if you look back over the last several years we've had anywhere from $0.02 to $0.04 on a per share basis of prepayment income. I think on average, as a matter of fact, it's $0.04. It tends to be lumpy. So that's not a regular number per quarter, but that's the average over the last several years. This quarter was significantly less than that, closer to $0.01, it's been between nothing and $0.01 in recent quarters. And that's a function to your point of the seasoning in the portfolio decreased velocity in 2020, and then the resultant aging of the portfolio, the prepayment income obviously is a function of the aging of the loans.

As the portfolio turns over, as originations and repayments resume, and the portfolio turns over into the more typical demographic, so to speak, over the next several quarters. And we'll see that velocity resume and the potential for prepayment income resume, and that additional yield return to the portfolio.

Douglas Harter -- Credit Suisse -- Analyst

Yeah. So just to make sure I understand what you're saying that takes a couple of more quarters of originating and having normal repayments and then probably get back to that $0.02 to $0.04, albeit lumpy range?

Douglas N. Armer -- Executive Vice President, Capital Markets and Treasurer

Yeah. I don't know whether we can put a specific number of quarters on it, because it will really depend on the blow-by-blow of the originations and repayments. But over the next period as the portfolio turns over and the demographics return to a more normalized level, we'll see if that happen. So it's anyone's guess as to whether it's two quarters or four quarters. But it's some period of time in the intermediate term.

Douglas Harter -- Credit Suisse -- Analyst

Great. That's very helpful. Thank you.

Operator

[Operator Instructions] And your next question comes from the line of Charlie Arestia, J.P. Morgan. Please go ahead.

Charlie Arestia -- J.P. Morgan -- Analyst

Hey, good morning, everybody, and thanks for taking the questions. Were there any loan modifications that were executed during the quarter? I'm assuming you've seen a deceleration in those requests. But just curious to get your thoughts on how those conversations are going?

Katie Keenan -- President

Sure. So, we're really back in the mode of where we were pre-COVID with respect to loan modifications where we actively go through our portfolio and look for opportunities to proactively modify loans to keep the good credits that we like around for longer. So we're seeing in the portfolio, some restarted or expanded business plans. We're seeing assets progressing their business plans, where we want to right size the rate of the loan to get more call protection. That's really the tenor of the loan modifications we have going on right now. The COVID impact modifications really are, we turn the page for the most part on those.

Charlie Arestia -- J.P. Morgan -- Analyst

Okay, got it. Thanks, Katie. And then, if I could just get to sort of asset specific updates on some of your larger four-rated loans. First, the $360 million Maui Hotel, given the recent developments in vaccine progress, and I'd say stronger performance in leisure hotels. I would be curious to hear how things are progressing on that asset. And then second, the $920 million mixed use in Spain, again, looking at sort of the reopening trends domestically versus what you read about happening in Europe. I'm wondering if we can get an update there, and if there is possibility of any specific reserve builds on either of those loans. I realize there is plenty of runway on the maturities there. But given the size of those and the risk ratings I figured, I would ask.

Katie Keenan -- President

Sure. So on the Maui Hotel, I think that what we've seen, we're big believers in the post-COVID travel recovery across Blackstone. We're obviously investing in that theme. The combination of pent-up demand accumulated savings, vaccine adoption, travel restrictions lifting. We think there's going to be a very powerful recovery, particularly in the leisure resort segment of the market. And that asset is extremely well positioned. It's finished its renovation plan during COVID. Hawaii has extremely positive long-term supply demand fundamentals. This is right on the beach in Maui. So we're seeing this hotel will be a big beneficiary from the trends that we're expecting. The hotel has -- yeah, we're seeing some tick-up in occupancy. It will take time, especially with the place like Hawaii. Obviously, it's a long flight. But once people have a better perception of safety, we think the Hawaii market is really going to perform very well.

On the other asset, you mentioned in Spain, we are -- I think the broader reopening is also a benefit to that portfolio. We're seeing collections pick up. It's still a business plan that will progress over time, but no real material changes there.

Charlie Arestia -- J.P. Morgan -- Analyst

Thanks very much.

Operator

And your next question comes from the line of Jade Rahmani from KBW. Please go ahead.

Jade Rahmani -- KBW -- Analyst

Thank you very much. I was wondering if perhaps, Steve or Katie, you can share thoughts on if there is any roll back in 1031 exchanges? How do you think it might impact the real estate market?

Stephen D. Plavin -- Chief Executive Officer

Hey, Jade, this is Steve. I think the 1031 exchange market will impact certain net leased assets and other assets that tend to be frequently traded in that marketplace. I don't think it will have any real impact on our business. I don't see a vibrant 1031 market is being important for valuations to the kinds of assets that secure our loans. There will be a tax headwind for certain investors that are expected to have any impact on our business.

Jade Rahmani -- KBW -- Analyst

Thank you very much. And in terms of the nature of the originations, you mentioned multifamily as a bright spot. Just wondering if you're seeing any changes from the GSEs, perhaps they've tightened spreads in order to manage some recent uptick in interest rates. But I'm wondering if they're less active and that presents an opportunity.

Katie Keenan -- President

Yeah. Jade, it's a great question. I think we are seeing a little bit of that on the margin. The GSEs have been a bit less active generally in recent months. And so on the margin, we might be picking up some loans that might have been ready for GSE execution a little bit earlier. But by and large the loans we're making, they come from relationships, there is usually a little bit of a transitional elements for them. So we're typically a lender leading up to a GSE execution. So not a huge impact. But I think, maybe a little bit on the margin.

Jade Rahmani -- KBW -- Analyst

Thanks very much.

And your next question comes from Don Fandetti from Wells. Please go ahead.

Donald Fandetti -- Wells Fargo Securities -- Analyst

The dynamic --

Stephen D. Plavin -- Chief Executive Officer

Good morning, Don.

Donald Fandetti -- Wells Fargo Securities -- Analyst

Hi, can you guys hear me?

Stephen D. Plavin -- Chief Executive Officer

Yeah, we can hear you now.

Donald Fandetti -- Wells Fargo Securities -- Analyst

Okay, great. I was wondering if you could talk about the competitive dynamic today in the US, and maybe also contrast that with Europe? And then just lastly, as you come out of COVID, are there any strategic changes? Or are you going to just kind of continue forward with the same strategy?

Katie Keenan -- President

Sure. So I think as far as the competitive dynamic, I think what we're really seeing is pretty similar to pre-COVID. So there are certainly other lenders out there, but our advantages continue to shine through. We've got great relationships with borrowers, obviously, with our financing counterparties. We have the ability to act and scale that many others can't meet. We have really differentiated access to information that allows us to move quickly and find the loans that we like. So we've always operated in a competitive environment. And we've always been able to find a really large volume of attractive investment opportunities.

Europe has also always been a little bit less competitive. It's just a bit of a less liquid market environment. There are fewer lenders over there that have the type of information advantage and scale that we have as part of the Blackstone platform. So we really like the Europe opportunity and it's always been a fruitful ground for finding investments.

I think as far as the business model, our view of the last year was that it really was the validation of what we've always thought was a very strong strategy, lending to well capitalized sponsors, high-quality real estate that proves resilient, having a very high integrity match funded balance sheet. All of those things, I think, really drove outperformance for our business in the last year. And we think that's the right place to be.

Donald Fandetti -- Wells Fargo Securities -- Analyst

Okay. Thank you.

Operator

And the final question comes from Stephen Laws, Raymond James. Please go ahead.

Stephen Laws -- Raymond James -- Analyst

Hi, good morning. A number of things have been covered. But can you touch on PIK [Phonetic] income? How much PIK income was in the quarter? And how did that change year-over-year and sequentially, which I guess are somewhat fairer comps than normal, since there was less portfolio turnover over the last 12 months in typical?

Anthony F. Marone -- Chief Financial Officer, Principal Accounting Officer and Assistant Secretary

Hey, it's Tony. On the PIK income question. We don't have a specific number disclosed, but what I would say is important is we only have 2% of the portfolio, which is two loans on non-accrual. So, and we're not deferring interest generally across any of our loans. So predominantly, the loans are all paying current. The receivables are all valid. And we're not building up any sort of big receivables or back ended tech that we're worried about collecting. So it's -- although, I don't have a number to share, I would say it's nothing that we need to be concerned about.

Stephen Laws -- Raymond James -- Analyst

Thanks, Tony. As a follow-up on a lot of things covered on the origination and pipeline, but just one more. It looks like no office origination in Q1. Can you talk about where that is in your pipeline? Are you less hesitant to do that given more uncertainties around that asset class looking out? If that's at all the case, how should we think about your portfolio mix by property type changing if we look say 12 or 24 months forward?

Katie Keenan -- President

Sure. So we did have the one office origination in the quarter, I mean, in Austin, Texas, with one of our best sponsors. And really I think it is that loan is indicative of what we're interested in the market where we've been lending pre-COVID and where we expect to continue. So we're seeing great opportunities in newer quality office buildings with strong sponsors. The types of buildings that have the amenities and the quality that that tenants want to be in and that employees want to be in. A lot of activity in growth market office in low basis office in core markets. So, we continue to think that we've made the right asset selection in the office space, and that there are good opportunities at the lender there. So I'm not sure I would think there'll be a significant change over time. I think we're just going to keep adhering to our very disciplined approach to which office buildings we think will be the winners and making sure we're making low leverage loans to the right sponsors in that market.

Stephen Laws -- Raymond James -- Analyst

Great. So it sounds like it stays above 50%, just kind of roughly. Great. Thank you very much for your time.

Katie Keenan -- President

Thank you.

This article represents the opinion of the writer, who may disagree with the “official” recommendation position of a Motley Fool premium advisory service. We’re motley! Questioning an investing thesis -- even one of our own -- helps us all think critically about investing and make decisions that help us become smarter, happier, and richer.
