Published On: 03.20.14

MIAMI — Grandbridge Real Estate Capital recently closed a $5,356,000 first mortgage loan secured by Cross Creek Apartments, a 292-unit multifamily community in Jacksonville, Fla. This acquisition was originated by Miami-based Michael Balan. Funding for the loan was provided through one of Grandbridge’s CMBS relationships and featured a 10-year term and 30-year amortization.

“This transaction involved a complicated network of foreign investors. Based in Mexico, this borrower group has a track record of successful value add projects and has worked with the lender on previous investment property transactions, making both parties comfortable and confident with our deal,” stated Balan. The property features a clubhouse, laundry facilities, pool and playground.
