Grandbridge Finances $25.5 Million Multifamily Property in Omaha, Neb.

Published On: 05.19.15

Minneapolis, Minn. — Grandbridge Real Estate Capital recently closed a $25,500,000 first mortgage loan secured by a 300-unit multifamily property in Omaha, Neb.  Minneapolis-based Dick Riley and Brett Olson originated and closed the refinance transaction.

Funding for the loan was provided by a Grandbridge correspondent life insurance company and featured a 10-year term, 30-year amortization, and closed with a fixed interest rate below four percent. Grandbridge successfully worked with the borrower and lender to structure the transaction to meet the borrower’s objectives. The loan required no personal guaranty and allowed the borrower to pay off the construction lender and transition from full recourse to a permanent 10-year nonrecourse loan.

“The loan allowed the borrower to eliminate interest rate risk by locking a low interest rate at loan application for four months as the property stabilized,” Riley said.

The property was originally built in 1958 as an office building and was completely renovated and redeveloped into a 300-unit, Class A apartment property. The property is 100 percent leased, primarily to downtown Omaha office workers and to Creighton graduate students and faculty.
