Ivy Commons - Parc at 1875

ATLANTA – Grandbridge Real Estate Capital recently closed a $29,522,000 first mortgage loan secured by Ivy Commons Apartments, a 344-unit multifamily community in Marietta, Ga., part of the Atlanta-Sandy Springs-Roswell Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA). 
Also closed was an $18,000,000 first mortgage loan secured by Park at 1875, a 352-unit multifamily property in Atlanta, Ga.
Grandbridge Atlanta-based Senior Vice President Alan Tapie and Assistant Vice President Thomas Wiedeman originated the transactions. Funding for each of the transactions was provided by Freddie Mac’s Capped ARM loan product and featured an initial period of interest-only, 10-year terms and 30-year amortizations, closing with interest rates in the low three percent range.
"The properties were refinanced by a repeat Grandbridge client. Grandbridge and Freddie Mac worked together to provide cash-out refinances to the borrower that allowed them to recoup a portion of their equity after they successfully completed their renovation plans. The properties qualified for the Freddie Mac Green UpSM program, one of Freddie Mac’s Green AdvantageSM options, as the client plans to implement water and energy saving improvements on both properties," stated Tapie.
