Grandbridge Finances $11 Million Distribution Center

Published On: 06.15.12

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Grandbridge Real Estate Capital recently originated and closed an $11,000,000 first mortgage loan secured by Anda Pharmaceuticals Distribution Center, a single tenant industrial/warehouse property in Olive Branch, Miss., a Memphis, Tenn., submarket. Kansas City-based Executive Vice President Tom Turner arranged the acquisition funding on the 234,660 square foot warehouse through Thrivent Financial for Lutherans. The 10-year loan closed with an interest rate of 4.8 percent with a 16-year amortization.

“An investment-grade tenant on a long-term lease in a new Class A industrial/warehouse distribution center, combined with a strong institutional borrower, were all in our favor as we worked with Thrivent to close the loan within a short time span to meet the borrower’s needs,” said Turner.
