Los Angeles — Los Angeles-based Grandbridge Vice President Perry Colligan and Assistant Vice President Kelly Haddigan Chou arranged a $2,175,000 permanent loan secured by Carson Self-Storage, a 584-unit self-storage facility in Gardena, Calif.  

The refinance amount covered the unpaid balance and all transaction costs with no cash-out.  The nonrecourse loan, provided by one of Grandbridge’s CMBS lenders, was structured with a 10-year term and 30-year amortization.  The property was 82 percent leased at funding.  The buildings, located in the South Bay infill area, are well suited to self-storage and feature a broad unit mix, ranging from small three-foot square units to a large 390 square foot unit.  The gated property features keypad entry and provides 10 onsite parking spaces.
