Grandbridge Finances $27 Million Georgia Multifamily Property

Published On: 02.04.14

Woodstock GA MFATLANTA — Grandbridge Real Estate Capital recently closed a $27,000,000 first mortgage loan secured by a 308-unit multifamily property in Woodstock, Ga.  This refinance transaction was originated by Atlanta-based Senior Vice President Alan Tapie.

“The broad range of service capabilities that Grandbridge offers were an integral part in the transaction,” stated Tapie. “Grandbridge’s parent company, BB&T, provided the construction loan for the property and during lease up Grandbridge secured the nonrecourse permanent loan to pay off the construction debt. The loan was structured with a forward rate lock that allowed the borrower to hedge interest rate movement until the property reached stabilization.”

The property features a luxury pool, high end fitness center with yoga studio, cabanas with picnic areas and fire pits, business center, coffee bar and greenway access all within walking distance of downtown.
