Grandbridge Arranges $15.25 in Calif. Office Financing

Published On: 10.30.13

LOS ANGELES — Los Angeles-based Grandbridge Senior Vice President Shelley Magoffin recently originated and closed a $15,250,000 first mortgage loan secured by a 98,134 square foot Class A office building located in northwest Fresno, Calif. Funding for the loan was provided by a life insurance company on behalf of a privately held investor based in Fresno, Calif., and featured a fully amortizing term of 15.5 years. The property was approximately 95 percent leased at funding with a rent roll which had staggered lease rollover and some credit.  

“The property is located in a secondary market in central Calif. Grandbridge was able to work provide the information the lender needed to get comfortable with the lack of depth in the office market and the size of the building relative to the supply,” explained Magoffin.
